If you didn’t know, you can link an Amazon Prime account to a Twitch account for free goodies and bonus Twitch features. Sometimes you get free games, other times it might be DLC, but this month you can score a free subscription to Crunchyroll Premium.
The new promotion is the first time that non-gaming loot is available for Twitch Prime members, and it’s free. Crunchyroll is one the leading sources of stream-able anime content, and the service partnered with Amazon’s Twitch Prime to offer 30 days of free Crunchyroll Premium to members.
As we mentioned earlier, Twitch Prime gives members a selection of free PC games every month, and free in-game loot for games, but you also get premium features on Twitch. These include a free channel subscription every 30 days, and exclusive chat colors and emotes.
Twitch Prime is available in more than 200 countries and territories.
“While we constantly focus on delighting Crunchyroll fans, we also feel it’s our responsibility to continue to proliferate the popularity of anime to new audiences,” said Eric Berman, head of partnerships, Crunchyroll. “We pride ourselves on working with like-minded, fan-focused partners and are excited to offer all Twitch Prime members a free pass to Crunchyroll right in time for the huge spring anime season.”
For the last two years, Twitch was the exclusive live-streaming home for the Anime Awards, Crunchyroll’s yearly awards show honoring the best in Japanese animation. This past year, Twitch streamed the exclusive pre-show anime marathon, which garnered nearly 19M minutes watched to more than 1.3M viewers. The Anime Awards this year received over 5M votes across 15 categories from fans all around the world, and the official Twitch stream of the show reached nearly half a million unique viewers. Crunchyroll boasts a community of over 50M registered users and 2M. The anime library includes over 1,000 series and 30,000 episodes.
The Twitch Prime membership is included with Amazon Prime. You can find more information on Twitch Prime right here on Amazon.
