Is Amazon Prime Different In Other Countries?

Content available from Prime Video varies by country and does not include purchases or rentals. When you change the country settings for your Amazon account, you’ll no longer be able to access any of your Prime Video purchases or rentals.


Prime Video Error: This video is currently unavailable to watch in your location

Just like Netflix, Amazon has titles based on regions. For example, if a video(title) is made available for Amazon Prime UK, you can’t access it using an Amazon Prime US account.


Is Amazon Prime blocking VPN?

Yes, they have been actively blocking VPN services. When you try to play a video/title in Amazon prime over a VPN connection, they can detect you’re coming from an encrypted connection and block your access.


How Do I Bypass Amazon Prime VPN block?

You can use a Smart DNS service to bypass the restrictions and the details are below.


How Do I Trick My location For Amazon Prime Video?

If changing country location didn’t work for you, you will need to perform additional steps.

You can use a free Smart DNS service to bypass these restrictions.

In a nutshell, you will need to do the following;

  1. Create a new Amazon account
  2. Configure your device to use a free Smart DNS service to bypass region-restrictions
  3. Change Amazon Region on Smart DNS Website
  4. Access prime videos/titles you wanted.

Complicated? No! Follow the steps below.

1. Register for A New Amazon account

Register for a new account at the amazon.com website. If you want to access more than a region/country videos, you need a separate Amazon Prime account for each region.

Important Note: Your new Amazon account region is determined by your account’s billing address and country selection. Please ensure you’ve set this correctly.

If you need help finding a random address/phone number, there’s a great resource at Fake Name Generator that may be helpful.

2. Smart DNS Setup

Once you’ve registered for a new Amazon Prime account, you will need to use a Smart DNS service.

e.g. Say you’re in the UK and want to access Amazon Prime USA. Despite having an Amazon US account, you still can’t access the US titles as Amazon knows you’re coming from a UK based IP address. Therefore, you’ll need to use a Smart DNS service to bypass region-restrictions.

To use a Smart DNS service, register for an account and configure your device as per the instructions at the link(s) below:

3. Changing Amazon Prime Region

Once you’ve configured your device to use Smart DNS, go to your Account’s region configuration, and lookup for Amazon Prime.

Next, select the Amazon Prime region you wish to access and click on the Update button.

That’s it! When you access Amazon Prime, you will appear as if you are coming from the selected region.

4. Accessing Amazon Prime Video

For any other regions, please use the www.primevideo.com website.


Which Amazon Prime Country Is Supported By Smart DNS Proxy?

Below are list of the Amazon Prime countries/regions that is supported:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • India
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Spain
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

Is Smart DNS Proxy Safe?

Absolutely! Most of the region-restricted websites have an initial location check, so a Smart DNS service route this request to their servers so you can bypass them.

This is a great service for Streaming as they only route the Internet traffic for the TV sites they support. Any other Internet traffic goes directly onto the Internet without Smart DNS service automatically.


Is Smart DNS Proxy Free?

You can use their service for 14 days for Free! They will not ask for your payment details and therefore, you will not be charged.

On the 14th day, you can either take a subscription with them or just don’t take any action. The free trial account will be automatically cancelled.

Personally, I would highly recommend their service because they support over 600+ TV channels and you can access it from anywhere in the world.

As low as $4 per month, their subscription is really cheap and it’s a good bargain.

This is also a great service for those who want to cancel their expensive cable TV subscription and look for a cheaper alternative.

Conclusion
