New Twitch Prime members will lose the benefit of ad-free viewing from September 14th, while those already continuing the £7.99 per month subscription will lose the perk on 15th October.
The good news is that Twitch Prime members will still be allowed an ad-free viewing experience for a single channel by using your monthly subscription token, as long as that channel has ad-free viewing for subscribers turned on. For many, their choice to subscribe was exclusively hinged on the ability to view without advertisements, going as far to shun the extra content in favour of an ad-free experience to return.
Advertising is an important source of support for the creators who make Twitch possible. Instead, Prime members' accounts will be credited $10 for every game they pre-order. It's a sloppier system, you pay more up front, and you're tied into spending more money at Amazon in the end via the $10 promo (which is a win-win for Amazon). Previously, Twitch Prime members were able to enjoy an ad-free experience on any device, watching any channel.

Twitch Prime benefits are being cut as well. To qualify for the $10 credit, the game will have to be sold by Amazon.com or Amazon Digital Services LLC (for digital downloads). According to Twitch, it has offered Twitch Prime members more than $1,000 worth of free games and in-game loot for games like "Fortnite", "PUBG" and "Hearthstone".
Beginning September 14, you'll start to see ads nearly everywhere on the site.
