u can prime from ur phone then cast to firetv
Has anyone tried this approach? Does it work for for the iOS Prime Video app?

I stumbled upon this thread after reading several reports of Prime Video app on Fire TV not working in SG with the SG Amazon Prime subscription.

Can anyone confirm that it works?

The stick will only work with your Singapore subscription if you subscribe to the USA prime, not the SG version. USA is international, the UK one will not work outside of Singapore either. Using your phone and pressing play on firestick will work if you have then both on the same WiFi network SSID.

Which makes me wonder if it is worth buying since it also might face the same issue.
Not worth buying. Avoid.

Anyone managed to solve this issue? Amazon Fire TV is a lovely device and nice interface. But irritating that despite being a singapore prime user, I can only access singapore content on laptop/ipad/iphone and not on my TV !!!

I have used Amazon support chat, but they were not able to help me and I still get the Amazon error code 5505.
A year later, same issue. Should have checked here before buying. But itís not a problem that anyone would anticipate, I think. Itís one thing to ignore a small market like Singapore, but deliberately disable the device is pretty hostile. Itís a real negative for me, I donít use the delivery a lot, so Iíll be off to Netflix then...
