What is UK Prime Video, and how can I watch it?

You’d have had to have been hidden under a rock for the past 10 years to not have heard of Amazon Prime Video.

Added to their ever-growing list of services, by the mightiest of the online shopping giants, Amazon created their video-on-demand service in 2006 under its original brand of ‘Amazon Unbox’. That was in the US—Prime Video wasn’t added to the UK Prime service until 2014.

Not satisfied with providing some of the best TV shows, series and movies, Prime Video also offers viewers additional subscription channels, to watch other suppliers’ content. As well as that, Amazon broke into the sports market, obtaining rights to broadcast a selection of Premier League football matches as well as a host of other specialist sports viewing.

Amazon Prime Video create and air some of the greatest TV shows and movies available. Their exclusive programming leaves many of its competitors in the shade. Without doubt, Prime Video is one of the most popular and provoking content providers you’ll find to date.

From Good Omens to Grey’s Anatomy, Game Night to American Sniper—and everything in between—you’ll find so much high-quality content on their servers, you could wonder why you’d ever need to go anywhere else.

However, it’s widely accepted that some of the best content delivers primarily to the UK and USA, leaving other countries' catalogues falling short. If you live outside the UK and you want to watch their exclusive content, read on, and we’ll show you how you can.

How can I watch UK Prime Video with StreamLocator?

UK Prime Video requires its viewers to be in the UK to access their movies, shows and channels. StreamLocator’s unique hub provides Amazon with a virtual UK location, making viewers appear just where they need you to be, allowing access to all of that glorious content.

No complicated settings or software installation required

One of the problems with other location solutions is that they need you to download and install their software onto every device that you plan to use to watch the Prime Video programs and channels. That’s quite a problem for closed systems, such as Smart TVs or Chromecast, that don’t have an app or easy VPN solution.

The beauty of StreamLocator is that it works with your WiFi router, so every Internet-enabled device that connects through it is automatically covered.

That means your Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Smart TV, games consoles, tablets, smartphones and more, are all catered for without you having to do a thing.

Even better, your hub comes with your subscription, it doesn’t affect WiFi speeds, nor will it have any impact on your day-to-day online activity. It’s like it’s not even there.

You can connect as many devices as you need, to as many services in however many countries—all at the same time. There’s nothing quite like it.

How to watch UK Prime Video from outside the UK

UK Prime Video uses geolocation-tracking technology to pinpoint its viewer’s whereabouts, making sure they’re in the UK as they access their content. Up until recently, the most common methods of getting around these blocks was to use VPN or Smart DNS services.

Either way, you’d need to find a workaround that provides the streaming-service providers with a virtual location in the correct region.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch UK Prime Video from outside the UK?

VPN and Smart DNS services have been the standout methods to get around geolocation blocks for quite some time. However, as the streaming providers become more invested in protecting their content, they’re finding more advanced ways to spot and block each type of workaround.

The beauty of StreamLocator is that it doesn’t work with one type of technology, but a selection. By communicating with the UK Prime Video servers, it finds out which one will provide the best solution, and connects automatically.

With that taken care of, you should be able to access your required content without any further ado.
