Beat boredom at home with DBS/POSB digital entertainment deals
Post-CB, entertainment options such as watching movies at the cinema are being gradually reintroduced. That said, this “new normal” comes with restrictions such as limited group sizes and spacing out in between.

Kick back in the comfort of your bed or sofa with these heavily discounted movies and shows, streamed to your device of preference. You can also browse through e-magazines documenting various topics, immerse yourself in an e- or audio book, or wrangle up the rest of the fam or a small group of friends to sing along to your fave tunes.
These exclusive digital entertainment deals for DBS/POSB Cardmembers offer savings of up to 80% along with several months of complimentary access, and they couldn’t have arrived at a more opportune time.
