How to Use Amazon Prime Video Streaming Outside the US

Amazon is taking on the battle with with their own “Prime Service”. Besides free shipping on Amazon goods you will get access to more than 5000 movies and TV-shows. However, you have to be located in the US to stream these movies – or do you?

First things first you need to sign up for Amazon Prime Service with a fake US address. Needless to say you should not have any items shipped to this address. Once you have signed up you will have a 1-month free trial before you are charged the early $79 fee (which is actually a pretty good deal).

How to Stream Movies from Amazon

The only problem is that you still can’t stream the movies because Amazon can detect you are not located in the US. They do this by looking at your IP-address. Luckily there is a way around that by using a VPN connection. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and it will connect you to a computer in the US that will act as a middleman between you and Amazon and thus make Amazon think you are located in the US. Pretty nifty huh?

The best VPN connection

So in order to connect to the “middleman” in the US you need an account with a VPN provider. The best one on the market is by far Hide My Ass VPN. They are fast and have enormous amounts of bandwidth. Personally I use them on all my devices to stream Amazon, and Hulu.

The best package is the 6 or 12 months package as it will serve your needs best. It is super simple to set up and once you have signed up they will send you a mail with instructions from A to Z. Best of all they have 24/7 live support to help you if you get stuck – but I doubt you will need them as it is super simple. Thats all you need to know if you want to sign up for Amazon Prime
