If you're already an Amazon Prime member, you'll be entitled to 30 minutes early access on all lightning deals throughout the Bank Holiday sale period. Also keep in mind that advertising on Twitch is rev-shared with partnered creators. 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.

No, this isn't some sort of joke, we're a few months past April Fools after all, Amazon really is making this major change to the Prime membership.Back in 2016, the online retailer unveiled this discount program on both pre-orders and new game releases.

As Twitch announced on its blog, Twitch Prime members with monthly subscriptions will get ad-free viewing until October 15th. The decision to end advertisement-free viewing for Twitch Prime subscribers looks to provide streamers with more income.

Prime members are going to be understandably upset about losing the discounts and Twitch benefits, but it's not entirely without precedent.

The headliner here is the removal of ad-free viewing from Twitch Prime.

Much like Amazon, Best Buy also left gamers with a similar replacement, offering a $10 credit for pre-ordering select games.

According to the new terms and conditions as laid out on Amazon's site, Prime members will no longer get the blanket 20% off on new games and pre-orders.

Twitch was clear about the fact that any new sign-ups to the Twitch Prime wouldn't be blessed with the ability to watch streams without ads. Your exclusive badge will still remain a staple of Twitch Prime. However, the change will apply for new member beginning September 14.
