Update: June 17, 2020: Twitch Watch Parties are now available for all Twitch creators worldwide to access.
Loads of people are spending time watching movies and TV shows on streaming services these days, as they’re stuck at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Amazon, working with its Twitch subsidiary, is expanding a new feature called Watch Parties to more creators, so they can stream, watch, and share Prime Video content with others online.
What are Twitch Watch Parties?
Watch Parties allows all Twitch creators to stream all of the Amazon Prime Video movies and TV shows on their channel, and any user with an Amazon Prime account can join in and watch alongside them. This feature has been in closed beta testing with a small number of Twitch creators since October.
People who join one of these events will likely see the Twitch creator reacting to the movie or TV show, much like Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Will you be joining, or even launching your own, Twitch Watch Party? If you do, make sure you sign up first for Amazon Prime Video.
