The online streaming service in Korea just got a little more crowded with the introduction of Amazon Video Prime on Thursday.

Customers can get a free seven-day trial to decide if they like the e-commerce giants offerings, before deciding if they want to pay the $2.99 fee for six months. After six months, the service jumps to $5.99 a month.

“We are excited to announce that starting today, fans around the world have access to Prime Video,” said Tim Leslie, vice president of Prime Video International. “‘The Grand Tour’ and other critically acclaimed Amazon Original Series like ‘Transparent,’ ‘Mozart in the Jungle,’ and ‘The Man in the High Castle,’ along with hundreds of popular Hollywood movies and TV shows, are now available at the introductory price of only $2.99 a month. And what’s really exciting is that we are just getting started.”

The service is available in 200 countries, but currently doesn’t offer much for the Korean consumer — only 60 movies currently are offered in Korean subtitles.
