A. Yes, Prime Student members are eligible for Twitch Prime. However, note that you will only get one channel subscription during your no-cost trial, even if your trial is longer than 30 days.
Q: How do I use Twitch Prime if there are multiple account holders in my household?
A. Twitch Prime benefits can only be redeemed by the primary Amazon Prime account holder. If there are multiple accounts associated with your Amazon Prime account, you need to disconnect your Twitch account from your Amazon account and reconnect it to your primary Amazon Prime account.
To disconnect your account, go to the Connections page in your Settings and uncheck the Amazon box.
You then need to reconnect your Amazon Prime account to Twitch, but this time make sure you select the primary Amazon Prime account holder in order to receive Twitch Prime benefits.
