Twitch is an American video live streaming service that focuses on video games including broadcasts of esports competitions. In addition, it offers music broadcasts, creative content, and more recently, “in real life” streams. It is operated by Twitch Interactive, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc.  It was founded by Justin Kan in 2011, originally as a spin-off of Justin.tv. The latter started life in 2007 as a single channel, broadcasting Kan’s life live around the clock. Following a 30-day free trial, Twitch Prime will be available to new or existing Prime members for $99 a year or $10.99 a month. If you have Amazon Prime or a Prime Video membership, you already get Twitch Prime for free. It’s just a matter of connecting your Twitch account to your Amazon account. Prime Gaming is a premium experience on Twitch that is included with Amazon Prime and Prime Video memberships. Prime Gaming includes bonus games and exclusive in-game content, a channel subscription every month at no additional cost to be used on any Partner or Affiliate channels, exclusive emotes, and chat badge. Although it might not have any other content like movies or shows you get to watch your favorite people play games or go through their daily lives and also get many benefits just by paying $10 a month.
