The “Unbox Thai Entertainment” campaign features a diverse collection of 13 titles, spanning the realms of film, TV and even concerts, showcasing some of Thailand’s most celebrated talents.
These stellar productions will be available exclusively to Prime Video members in Thailand, with a weekly release schedule from Oct 5 to Dec 28.
At a recent press conference held at the iconic Gaysorn Tower, Chaitanya Divan, senior manager of content acquisition for Prime Video in Southeast Asia, shared the platform’s vision saying: “Since Prime Video’s inception in Thailand last August, one of our primary objectives has been to offer content that resonates with the Thai audience. We aim to provide content that reflects their language, culture and sense of humour, which they can appreciate.”
Underpinning this commitment to local content, Prime Video has collaborated closely with its partners to curate the best stories and showcase local talent. “Unbox Thai Entertainment” marks a milestone, but according to Divan, it’s just the beginning: “We aspire to take these exceptional Thai stories to a global audience through Prime Video.”

The full list includes Kitty The Killer, PP Krit Lit & Glitter, Ghost Rookie, Grammy x RS: 2K Celebration Concert, Grammy x RS: Hit 100 Concert, Coin Digger, The X-treme Riders, The Office Games, Congrats My Ex!, 3 Idiot Heroes, Curse Code, My Undercover Chef and The Adventures Of Rung. Six of these titles will be accessible outside Thailand, reaching over 240 countries and territories worldwide, amplifying the global appeal of Thai entertainment.
Prime Video’s dedication to Thai content extends beyond its exclusive titles. Prime Video members in Thailand can also explore a diverse catalogue featuring Korean, anime and Hollywood titles, all available with Thai dubs and subtitles. Notable titles such as The Ghost Station, Chainsaw Man and Gen V offer viewers a varied and immersive experience. Additionally, over 70 new foreign titles spanning Hollywood and non-Hollywood categories are scheduled for launch in the first quarter of 2024, with Thai dubs and subtitles. This will allow Thai audiences to enjoy a plethora of foreign films and series in their native language.
Divan expressed his enthusiasm for the campaign stating: “We are extremely excited about the ‘Unbox Thai Entertainment’ campaign as it marks a significant milestone in the history of Prime Video in Thailand.”
The platform’s unwavering commitment to the Thai entertainment industry’s growth is evident as they continue to discover and engage with local talent and creators. Prime Video’s ultimate goal is to establish itself as the go-to platform for Thai entertainment on a global scale. “This campaign truly is a testament of our commitment to the creative community, and we are confident that this is just the beginning of something truly special and uniquely Thai,” Divan concluded.
