StarHub has become the first info-communications company in Singapore to offer Amazon Prime membership to its entire mobile customer base, including no-contract SIM Only and prepaid customers.
StarHub is home to more than 40 unique channels, amassing diverse entertainment programming of over 160 ‘live’ and on-demand channels in total. In collaboration with Amazon following the launch of its Singapore marketplace Amazon.sg, StarHub now enables its mobile customers to enjoy the full range of Amazon Prime membership benefits, from fast, free delivery on millions of items on Amazon.sg and Prime Now, to unlimited streaming of Amazon Original series, popular movies and hit TV shows on Prime Video, as well as access to free games and in-game loot on Twitch Prime. The Amazon Prime membership is available at S$2.99 per month.
“We are reaffirming our #HelloChange commitment in 2020 to deliver to customers the best experience and transparent offers without contract,” said Johan Buse, Chief of Consumer Business Group, StarHub. “Offering innovative digital lifestyle services with best-in-class businesses enhances our customers’ experience, and we are delighted to announce this collaboration with Amazon Singapore. First to offer Amazon Prime membership for all StarHub Mobile customers, we enable them to enjoy the best of Amazon’s shopping and entertainment options on Singapore’s fastest mobile network.”
“We are pleased to collaborate with StarHub to offer Amazon Prime membership to more people in Singapore,” said Henry Low, Country Manager, Amazon Singapore. “We welcome StarHub customers to experience the many benefits of Amazon Prime, including exclusive shopping deals on items they love most on Amazon.sg and Prime Now, free and fast delivery on millions of products, unlimited streaming of movies and TV series on Prime Video, and a wide selection of free games on Twitch Prime.”
All StarHub Mobile customers will enjoy a three-month Amazon Prime membership on StarHub when they get a new #HelloChange two-year or no-contract SIM Only plan. Existing customers can also enjoy the same offer by renewing their two-year plans or upgrading to the abovementioned plans.
After the renewal or sign-up is complete, customers can simply activate their Amazon Prime membership through the My StarHub app. Following the three-month period, the Amazon Prime membership is available at $2.99 per month, which will be charged to their StarHub Mobile bill.
Additionally, StarHub also launched a new prepaid data plan with Amazon Prime. The data plan is called ‘600MB with Amazon Prime’ and offers prepaid customers four weeks of Amazon Prime membership and 600MB of data for $6.
These customers can conveniently extend their Amazon Prime membership by buying the same data plan through the StarHub Prepaid app. Customers who need more data can add on other plans, from as low as $3 for 1GB to options that offer free data usage on Sundays.
Amazon Prime members in Singapore can enjoy three main benefits as part of their membership; shopping and delivery, entertainment and gaming. For shopping and delivery, members will enjoy a free one-day local delivery with no minimum purchase on Amazon.sg’s domestic Prime eligible selection, free international delivery on millions of eligible items from Amazon US on Amazon.sg for orders over S$60, free two-hour delivery for tens of thousands of items, including groceries and household essentials on Prime Now, for orders above S$40 and 30 minutes early access to Prime eligible lightning deals and exclusive access to special shopping deals and events before other customers.
In terms of entertainment, Amazon Prime members can stream or download Amazon Originals, popular movies and TV shows on Amazon Prime Video, including critically acclaimed and award-winning Amazon Originals such as Carnival Row, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Good Omens, Mirzapur, Made in Heaven, Inside Edge and more. There is also a range of content for the whole family including Pete the Cat, Just Add Magic, and Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny. Prime Video is available via the Prime Video app on select smart TVs, mobile devices, tablets, game consoles, Apple TV, Chromecast, or online at PrimeVideo.com. In the Prime Video app, users can download all episodes on their mobile devices and tablets and watch anywhere offline at no additional cost. Prime Video also offers exclusive X-Ray functionality. Powered by IMDb, X-Ray uses authoritative data that gives users instant access to cast photos, bios and filmographies, and soundtrack info related to your TV shows and movies while you watch, right on the screen.
Lastly, a selection of free games every month, exclusive in-game loot, and a free channel subscription on Twitch.tv will also be offered in the membership.
