Distinguishing prime sub from recurring sub in subscriptions API?

Given the new partner plus program, I am trying to help some people expose their recurring sub count but https://api.twitch.tv/helix/subscriptions does not appear to have any data that can be leveraged to distinguish between prime and tier 1 subscribers. I know there are a few roundabout ways to “estimate” the recurring sub count such as using the subscriber list that the streamer can download via the dashboard that does indicate prime subs and then tracking future prime sub events (at least the ones that have been shared), but am I missing some way to directly or indirectly get the true recurring sub count through Twitch’s API?

the API alone doesn’t give you this data as, as you found, it doesn’t distinghish primes…

iirc a uservoice exists for this

That’s disappointing. Thank you for confirming that for me.

You’d have to do a pull from the API into a database

Then use real time to figure out the primes
