AMAZON PRIME LAUNCHES IN AUSTRALIA
The long-awaited Amazon Prime has landed in Australia which means fast, free shipping for Aussie Amazon customers, among other perks. What we're more excited about though is the bundled Prime Video platform.
Amazon's Prime Video platform brings with it exclusive access to award-winning Prime Original productions, along with a host of popular movies and TV shows.
Titles include The Grand Tour, Golden Globe winner The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Emmy winner The Man in the High Castle, American Gods, and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
Prime Video can be accessed from mobile phones, tablets, select Smart TVs, game consoles and the Amazone Fire TV stick.
Rocco Braeuniger, Country Manager of Amazon Australia said:
We are thrilled to bring Prime, our premium membership program and its many benefits, to Australia, little more than six months after the launch of our Marketplace and Retail offering.
A healthy but growing library of 4K HDR content is already available for those who have the bandwidth - Amazon suggests a minimum of 15 megabits-per-second to stream Ultra HD. HD-Report maintains an index of 4K content.
The real deal here though is the pricing. Aside from the 30-day free trial on offer at the moment, Amazon Prime membership will set you back just $6.99 a month, or $59 a year. If you sign up before 31st January 2019, it's only $4.99 a month.
Don't forget Prime membership also offers you perks such as free, two-day delivery on Amazon AU purchases, along with free international delivery for purchases over $49.
You'll also get access to over 1,000 ebooks, comics, guides, kid's books and much more, games via Twitch Prime, and exclusive shopping deals. It's almost too good to be true for the asking price.
Jamil Ghani, Vice President of Prime International at Amazon said:
We are really proud to bring Australians the most extensive set of Prime benefits at launch for any country – ever. This is just the beginning for Prime in Australia, as we will keep making Prime better, adding even more selection and benefits.
Like us, you probably won't be able to resist this offer; Annual membership, done.
