Automatic Resub for prime members
Allows people who have amazon prime to turn on automatic resub for there free sub they could also have it off so they can sub to differnt people. would be very useful for people who have 1 year amazon prime membership.
Happy 7th anniversary. Glad to see this UserVoice platform is doing nothing. Let's hope we make it to ten without any changes to this system.
I am strongly against this.
My reasoning is as follows: The free 1-month subscription any Amazon Prime subscriber is given every month of their Amazon Prime subscription is an expense only proposition. It is a marketing tool that is meant to drive engagement on Twitch. If viewers who are Amazon Prime subscribers can just set and forget their Prime Sub to any streamer, and have mostly no interest in Twitch, the only ones who benefit from this are Affiliate and Partner streamers on Twitch. And the only benefit is a financial one. And worse, there will be no even distribution, with the featured broadcasters on the front page or who already make the most in ad revenue due to their high viewer counts reaping the lions share of it. This already happens with the current system, but them not automatically cancelling and needing to be renewed would amplify the issue, and no longer drive any genuine engagement to Twitch from those who forget in exchange.
Make Amazon Prime free Twitch subscription extend automatically as long as the user has Amazon Prime subscription active.
There should be ZERO automated Resubs when there is no intuitive way to cancel a subscription from a mobile phone. That's scummy.
Today at the Twitchcon Prime (NA) Patch Notes Live, Mikey Minty and the team kept pushing the use of Amazon Prime and saying how it's good for streamers. If this is to be the case, then it should be an option to allow Prime subs to be automatically renewed.
In this other UV post https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310231-subscriptions/suggestions/18419695--would-you-like-to-resubscribe-to-this-broadcaster it has been 'Planned' for resubbing with twitch prime. Having this automatically done, or an option to do it would be a good addition in this area.
And would "Help streamers" as per Mikey Minty's words.
A huge reason this hasn't been implemented after 6 ******* years, is because it is a business tactic. Twitch hopes you forget to resub, so they don't have to pay their creators as much. (this is likely enforced by Amazon)
How is this still not a thing when this was posted almost 6 years ago!??!? The main issue with prime subs is this ridiculous gap there seems to be between it expiring and renewing. I've noticed that there is about a 5 or so hour gap where you can't use your prime sub after it expires. That incredibly annoying issue could very easily be solved if you guys allowed automatic prime resubs. There is no logical reason we need to manually re-do it each month and there is especially no logical reason for a 5+ hour gap of being unable to use the sub at all. As someone who has been subbed to the same streamer with my prime sub since they were added in 2016, this is getting really really old and only making me want to cancel my prime subscription completely.
This would be great, as the majority of my subs are Prime subs (at the time of this comment). This is convenient for both the streamer and the subscriber. Then if someone wants to change who they use their Prime sub on, they can cancel the reoccurring subscription. This will be great for my iPhone users since there still isn't a way to use Prime Sub in the iOS Twitch app - and it is a pain to try to get it to work via the mobile browser.
Very good idea !!! @Twitch hurry up please !!!
yes please and make it to sub for more streamers than one
This has been posted since 2016. What is taking Twitch so long to comment or implemented yet? It's a no brainer.
This would be such a great quality of life feature to add. The amount of **** I go through every month trying to resub to the same channel is ridiculous. Half the time it doesn’t even work!
It should be made so that people can auto-assign their Prime sub to the same channel each month like you can with auto-renewing regular subs. Right now you have to go and manually resub to the channel each month and sometimes the sub isn't even available as soon as your previous month's Prime sub runs out so you're left without a sub until it becomes available again.
THIS! We get so tired of having to remind our fans to subscribe with Amazon Prime. It hurts our content and it's easily the most-requested feature from our users/viewers/fans. They've been requesting it for years now. It's hard to rely on the revenue generated from Prime Subscriptions when it goes up and down like a Yo Yo every month. This is my biggest request of Twitch and I hope it can become a reality. Thank you.
I genuinely agree with this. Please, add this! I don't want to keep reminding myself to re-sub with Prime Gaming.
this is a no brainer! im 100% with this
A little over 4 years later and not even a word from Twitch on this huh?
This really should have been implemented years ago.
Glad i'm not the only one thinking that way ! it should be off by default but you should be able to turn it on.
Plus they have the template to make it since they already did do it for paid subs.
Hopefully this one will be added despite the year this post was made...
This seems like a no-brainer. Not sure why this hasn't been implemented yet. Please make this a thing!!!
I agree with this i will always keep my sub with who i am subbed to now, also i am going to be on deployment so i want to make sure i dont lose my 3 year sub status while i have no control over it.
