Amazon will also be ending certain benefits to its Twitch Prime program. Here's the reason why, "Advertising is an important source of support for the creators who make Twitch possible". This change will strengthen and expand that advertising opportunity for creators so they can get more support from their viewers for doing what they love.

Twitch declared ad-free seeing streaming through Twitch Prime back in 2016, formerly a perk exclusive to Twitch Turbo, a $8-a-month holdover from earlier Amazon bought it. The decision follows a re-evaluation of the Twitch Prime benefits, the company explained, saying the free viewing experience for monthly Prime users will continue until October 15. While Amazon Prime is clearly still going strong, this change on the gaming side of the service seems to be a move to push the pricier Twitch Turbo subscription for those who are truly series about their viewing. Announced in an email sent to Twitch Prime users, Amazon announced that starting August 28th, they will no longer offer a 20% discount on physical video games pre-ordered through the e-commerce website.

However, losing the 20 percent discount on pre-orders is not all that Prime members are losing this year. That's because Amazon Prime membership comes with Twitch Prime membership included, which offers an ad-free experience on Twitch. Best Buy quietly phased out their GCU promotion a few months ago though, stopping new memberships and renewals but allowing current members to finish out their subscription. Instead, the online retailer will implement a new benefit that gives customers a $10 Amazon credit for pre-ordering select games.

EPL: Iwobi scores in London derby
And with four minutes left to play in the first half Iwobi slammed in a cross from Mkhitaryan to draw Arsenal level at 2-2. Alex Iwobi nabbed Arsenal's equaliser with a clinical effort in the 44th minute.

The popular tie-in model between Twitch and Amazon Prime will soon stop blocking ads for subscribers. Twitch Partners have access to ad revenue which means they can run ads to make their viewers watch in a way to make a quick buck or two, depending on the number of viewers they have.

So. basically you're removing best prime function? However, the change will apply for new member beginning September 14.
