Prime Video offers members exclusive Amazon Originals and other popular movies and TV shows like Good Omens, The Man in the High Castle, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan and more. Prime members interested in gaming will benefit from Twitch Prime's offering of free in-game loot, channel subscriptions and more.

Customers can try Prime by signing up for a 30-day free trial, and then join Prime for S$2.99 a month.

"With Amazon.sg, we want to provide what customers have been asking us for: the ability for everyone to shop on desktop and mobile, more local and international selection from Amazon and trusted sellers, paired with fast and reliable delivery. And we are also adding even more benefits for Prime members," said Henry Low, Amazon Singapore Country Manager. "This launch marks the next step for us in Singapore, and we will continue to work hard to earn the trust of Singapore customers by growing our product range, ensuring low prices, and providing a convenient and trusted shopping experience."
