If you’ve tried Twitch Prime and have decided that it’s not for you, you can cancel your Twitch Prime membership.

However, Twitch Prime is bundled into your Amazon Prime subscription. So in order to cancel Twitch Prime, you’ll need to disconnect your Amazon Prime account from your Twitch account.

You can make this change via your Twitch account’s settings page, using any browser on your Mac or PC. Here’s how.

5. In the pop-up window that appears, click “Yes, Disconnect.”

This method allows you to cancel Twitch Prime without cancelling your Amazon Prime subscription itself.

However, if you do cancel your Amazon Prime subscription, your Twitch account will be unlinked from your Amazon account automatically, essentially cancelling both Amazon Prime and Twitch Prime at the same time.

If you want to cancel Amazon Prime too, check out our guide on how to do just that.
