Though they’ve had the Prime brand name in the Australian marketplace for over a year now with the Amazon Prime Video service that’s quietly been gathering customers, there’s been a lot of speculation about when Amazon would finally launch the full Prime service here in Australia.
The wait is now over, with Amazon Prime bringing its collection of perks and benefits to Australian customers for the first time.
Original shows on Amazon Prime
- The Grand Tour — The former hosts of Top Gear are back with a brand-new show featuring all the shenanigans you love them for.
- Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan — Follow the story of up-and-coming CIA analyst Jack Ryan as he takes on a dangerous field assignment for the first time.
- American Gods — Based on the award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman, this series follows the tale of ex-convict Shadow after he meets a mysterious man who calls himself “Wednesday.”
Along with the ever-growing collection of TV shows and movies on Prime Video, your Amazon Prime membership also gives you a valuable set of benefits.
Free shipping for Australian customers
Tying in with the launch of the full Amazon Australia shopping site, Prime members get free expedited delivery on a huge range of eligible items on the Australian site – and also free international delivery on orders over $49 from Amazon US.

You also get access to a free Kindle eBook library of over 1,000 books with Prime Reading, regular free games and game add-ons with Twitch Prime, and access to cloud storage for your stuff – and there are more Prime benefits to come!
