Amazon Prime might now be available pretty much everywhere but just like on Netflix, not everything is available everywhere. That’s why you are searching for how to watch American Amazon Prime outside of the US on the Fire TV Cube.
You got the Fire TV Cube with the promise of getting to watch incredible content with Amazon Prime on a big screen, only to realize that most of that content that you thought you will be able to access is exclusive to the US alone.
Even if you are in the UK which is a known region for content streaming, you will get much less content to stream than on the American Amazon Prime.
So what do you do to watch American Amazon Prime outside of the US on the Fire TV Cube? Let’s go over it!
To put simply, you need to not be in any other country than the US to watch American Amazon Prime. But this post isn’t about you flying to the US and catching up on content when you get there. To watch American Amazon Prime outside of the US on the Fire TV Cube, you need to trick Amazon into thinking that you are in fact in the US.
And ironically, Amazon makes it easy for you to trick them. This method wouldn’t for instance work on the Chromecast.
To watch American Amazon Prime outside of the US on the Fire TV Cube you need to be in the US, virtually.
You don’t need to move. It’s only your internet location that needs to change.
How do you do that? Certainly not by changing the location of your device in settings.
You need to use a VPN.
A VPN like PrivateVPN will allow you to be in the US without being there if you connect to an American server. We currently have 15 American servers for instance. But most importantly, we have a dedicated Amazon Fire TV Cube app in the Amazon Appstore. No side loading or mobile app downloading needed. Just search for PrivateVPN on the Fire TV Cube like for any other app, and download it.
You will have to register online for a PrivateVPN account though. Unfortunately, you currently can’t make an account directly from the app.
But Amazon isn’t stupid. It gives you freedom in terms of allowing you to download VPN services but it also protects itself meaning a lot of VPN services don’t work with Amazon.
You might be thinking about using a VPN that’s free. If you want to watch American Amazon Prime outside of the US on the Fire TV Cube, forget about it. Free VPN services won’t work with Amazon Prime. Those are the easiest to target and the ones with the most users. But that’s also good because you won’t be compromising on quality in order to watch Amazon Prime. Free services are slow. So are a lot of paid ones. You need to look for services that come with internet capacity bought from IP transits providers directly. FYI, we buy most internet capacity from IP Transit providers directly.
Not all of our servers work with Amazon. And due to Amazon the servers that work change all the time. Try them all or contact our customer support. And once you connect, exit out of the Amazon Prime app, open it again, and you should see more content than ever.
And if you don’t, our customer support can also help you with that!
