Amazon-owned game-streaming giant Twitch today expanded its Twitch Prime program to more than 200 countries and territories. Twitch Prime, which rolled out last year, is a bundle of Amazon Prime benefits specifically aimed at gamers like discounts on game pre-orders and new releases, a rotating selection of free digital titles, in-game bonuses, and an ad-free Twitch experience that includes a free monthly Twitch channel subscription.
Twitch Prime is available to those who pay for an Amazon Prime membership in the U.S., Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Spain, and the U.K. Now, it’s also accessible to customers in countries where Amazon Prime not offered, but monthly Prime Video subscriptions are available. Those users can pay $5.99 per month ($2.99 for the first six months) to have Twitch Prime benefits added to their Prime Video account.
Amazon paid nearly $1 billion to acquire Twitch in 2014.
