What is Amazon Prime Video?
Amazon Prime is a paid subscription program from the “everything store” which includes a streaming video service called Prime Video.
You can pay for Prime Video separately, but in our experience it’s easier to get US Prime Video if you sign up for the “normal” Amazon Prime service, even though it’s a bit more expensive.
Prime Video is a streaming juggernaut, offers a large selection of TV programmning and movies. Amazon Prime also offers Prime Video Channels, where you can purchase additional services inside the Prime Video app. These are services like Acorn TV, Britbox, Showtime and Starz to name a few.
Amazon Prime costs $12.99/month, but standalone Prime Video is $8.99/month. If you try to sign up for Prime Video as a standalone service, you might run into issues paying for the service, which are not a a problem if you sign up for the normal Amazon Prime service, which inludes access to Prime Video.
I wanna access US Prime Video now! What do I need to do?
If you are a playmoTV DNS user you can access US Prime Video outside the US (as a matter of fact anywhere in the world).
If you’re not a playmoTV DNS user then you need to do the following (existing users that are linked can go to step 3):
- Sign up for a playmoTV DNS account. We offer a 7-day trial without a credit card.
- Link your computer or device to the playmoTV gateway so we can help you access Amazon Prime Video.
- Sign up or login to Prime Video at their website or in the Prime Video app.
Does playmoTV DNS come with a US Prime Video account?
No, playmoTV DNS only helps you unblock access to Prime Video. We assume that you either have a Prime Video account, or you will get an account after you sign up for playmoTV.
What content is on Prime Video?
Original content, and also a lot of TV shows (current seasons and back catalogs) and movies.
How do I sign up and pay for US Prime Video without a US credit-card?
We recommend going to amazon.com and sign up for the normal Amazon Prime membership. That’s the easiest method, as Amazon will accept foreign credit credit cards on that plan, that is credit cards not issued in the US.
