For sure, there are a few gamers who haven’t heard about Twitch, the popular video game streaming platform. However, there are still many fans who are seemingly unaware of the benefits of Twitch Prime which they could be enjoying by simply linking their Amazon Prime accounts to the Twitch service.
Rejoice because we’ve put together this little breakdown on how you can link your Amazon Prime account to enjoy this platform’s benefits.
How to do it
Twitch is owned by Amazon, making it quite easy for an Amazon Prime user to get started using the Twitch Prime platform. Those who are interested can head over to the official website and view an overview of the highlights and they can even start a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime if they wish.
It isn’t hard, as we previously said, to join it. The aforementioned site contains all that is required for you to sign up. Getting the Amazon affiliation translates into most of the pertinent forms being already populated with the necessary info. However, there are some subscribers of Amazon Prime who can encounter an error on the website.
This error speaks about a billing address being required to be verified before granting access to Twitch Prime. Luckily, there’s an even easier procedure which doesn’t involve this error. This sign-up procedure should work for all users.
Simply go to the official page of Amazon, click on ‘Accounts and Lists’ and sign in if necessary. From the Your Account homepage, click on the button labeled Prime, then scroll down to find the Twitch Prime listing. Click on Learn More, then click the Connect your Twitch Account button in the upper-right corner. After a short wait, the accounts will be linked, and players can start enjoying all those tasty Twitch Prime benefits.
