To activate Amazon Prime Gaming, all you have to do is link your Twitch account to an Amazon account that has an activated Prime subscription.
Amazon Prime costs $14.99 per month or $139 per year. The student subscription offers six months free, then a 50% discount for up to 4 years.

The Disadvantages of Prime Gaming
The main downside to Prime Gaming is that you need to purchase an Amazon Prime subscription to access it, even if you don’t use the rest of its features. This is annoying for some users because, as a standalone subscription service, it can cost less per month.
Also, unlike Twitch Turbo, Prime Gaming doesn’t give you the freedom to advertise on your Twitch channel. Of course, this only matters if you’re actively streaming.
