Here's How to Subscribe to Someone with Twitch Prime

Twitch has over 30 million daily active users and at any given time, over 2.5 million people are watching a Twitch stream. If you’re new to the platform, Twitch is a live streaming platform that features content on gaming, entertainment, music, and more. It’s a community where individuals can come together to interact, chat, and connect.

If you didn’t know: there is a premium service for Twitch called Twitch Prime. This service takes your experience to the next level and provides a range of perks.

If you’ve never heard of it before, here’s everything you need to know:

What is Twitch Prime?

Twitch Prime is the paid, premium service that Twitch provides. A subscription to Twitch Prime removes all of the ads at the start of a stream. So you’ll never need to be bothered by ads: while enjoying your favorite streams.

As a prime member, you'll experience a redesigned chat room experience. Every prime member receives an exclusive chat badge, so everyone will know you’re a member in the chat rooms. You’ll also receive emote reactions and new chat colors.

Twice prime members will also have their broadcast storage extended from 14 days to 60 days. There are monthly perks for members, like free games or in-game content you won’t see anywhere else. The best part about being a member is that it includes an Amazon Prime membership.

How much does it cost?

You can try Twitch Prime for free for 30 days. After that, it’s $12.99 a month. However, you’ll also receive a free Amazon Prime membership. The price of Amazon Prime is $12.99 a month or $119 for the year. If you’re someone that would use both of these services frequently, it’s a great subscription to consider that combines the costs and gives you both of the benefits.

Do you already have an Amazon Prime Membership?

If so, you’ll also get to experience the benefits of Twitch Prime for free. You can do this by linking your Twitch and Amazon Prime accounts.

Here’s how you can link your accounts

  • You’ll want to go to the Amazon Twitch Prime page
  • Sign in at the top right-hand corner and enter your Amazon Prime login information
  • After logging in, click 'Link Twitch Account' on the lefthand side.
  • Then sign into your Twitch account
  • Confirm the accounts are linked
  • Go over to Twitch to start using your new prime subscription

How to subscribe to a Twitch Streamer

Once you’re a Twitch premium user, you can use your monthly free subscription to subscribe to your favorite streamers.

Here’s how you can do it

  • Go to the streamer’s page and click on their profile
  • Click the Subscribe button at the top of the page
  • If you haven’t subscribed to a streamer for the month, you’ll be asked if you want to use your monthly free Twitch Prime subscription
  • Click yes, and you’ll be able to subscribe for one month, free of charge
  • To use your free subscription through Twitch Prime again, you’ll need to wait one month.
  • You can’t set up a recurring subscription if you want to resubscribe to that streamer, you’ll need to resubscribe every month
  • You can view all of your current subscriptions when you go to profile, click the top-right corner, and click subscriptions
  • You’ll be able to view all of your expired and current subscriptions, as well as your expiration date

When you subscribe to a streamer using your Twitch Prime account, you’re giving that streamer $4.99. If you choose to set up a recurring subscription and not use your Twitch Prime account, you’ll need to pay this fee yourself. However, it’s important to always remember to use your free subscription every month. This is a great way to support the Twitch community and give back to the creators that make Twitch possible. The best part is: that you don’t even need to pay anything on your end.
