It has come to out attention that Amazon Prime Video service is now available in Malaysia without the need to go through VPN or DNS modification. This is likely part of the global roll out that the company has promised just before the launch of its much-hyped automotive series, The Grand Tour.
In fact, the global availability of Amazon Prime Video which apparently involved more than 200 countries throughout the world has been reflected in the change logs of the service’s Android and iOS apps. However, Amazon still uses US Dollar for the service instead of Ringgit Malaysia.
At this moment, the monthly fee for Malaysian customers is set to USD 2.99 (about RM 14) for the first six month before the fee is reverted to its normal price of USD 5.99 (about RM 27). Nevertheless, this is still much lower than Prime Video’s stand-alone pricing in US which costs USD 8.99 (about RM 40) per month.
Consumers can check out Amazon Prime Video either through Android or iOS apps as well as through its official website. Alternatively, the service can also be enjoyed through selected smart TVs from Samsung and LG together with Amazon’s own Fire tablets.
