Members also receive a free Twitch channel subscription to use on their favorite broadcaster every 30 days. Members around the world couldn’t get enough of the free video games and in-game content with Twitch Prime last year:

Members claimed a total of more than 50 million free games worldwide, with hundreds of hours of free gameplay available for each member.

Members also made their favorite games better, downloading 55 million pieces of in-game loot and content across 17 blockbuster games worldwide, including League of Legends, Overwatch and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.

Tens of thousands of broadcasters turbo boosted their channels with subscriptions from Twitch Prime members. Iconic Twitch broadcaster Ninja said “Wanna know the power of @TwitchPrime and @FortniteGame? I gained 30,000 subscribers in 8 hours … This growth is seriously mind boggling.”

The most popular loot drop was for Fortnite, which included two exclusive in-game character outfits, backpack, pickaxe and emote.

Best of Prime 2018: Prime Reading

They say the book is always better than the movie, but what about the comic book? Members tested that theory out with “Black Panther,” Prime Reading’s most beloved comic-to-movie adaptation.

Members love mysteries – half of Prime Reading’s top ten most read books this year were Mystery novels, including “Say You’re Sorry,” the most read book of the year.

The top five most borrowed titles by Prime members in the U.S. include “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,” “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” “The Handmaid's Tale,” “Milk and Honey” and “Say You're Sorry.”
