Amazon's Twitch Lowering Non-U.S. Subscription Prices

A subscription to Twitch, the durably popular video gaming chat and broadcast service operated by Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN), is about to get cheaper -- but there's a catch. On its official company blog Monday, Twitch announced that it is reducing those costs, however only in certain countries outside of the U.S. It's doing so because the cost of a monthly subscription at the company's Tier 1 level is $4.99, and while that's easily affordable for many American gamers, it can be prohibitively expensive in economically weaker nations. The Amazon unit added that over the course of the next several months, it will adjust its subscription prices based on the affected countries' cost of living.
