Twitch Prime is one of a series of disruptive new initiatives in games that highlight Amazon's investment and dedication to the industry and its players. Twitch Prime launched on September 30, 2016, offering a premium Experience on Twitch and a series of new benefits available to all Amazon Prime members. Twitch Prime is a fantastic value proposition for gamers with Amazon Prime. We believe the evolution that began with arcade communities, growing to the live streams and eSports of today, will continue to a future in which fans are creators, players are celebrities, and games are a global cultural touchstone that cuts across age, gender and nationality. Games have the power to connect communities at a massive scale, and this role will delve into these communities, linking these communities to Amazon’s broader ecosystem through content that is all about the gamers.
