Re: Amazon Prime Samsung TV

Sometimes you're lucky and it just works. That was our surprise. Our UK amazon prime account works on our Samsung TV. Without changing any location or other settings, I went into apps, downloaded amazon prime (it just happens to have english language version) and signed in a it worked first try.

I have english as the menu language for the TV, and (I assume) CH as the location. It's a new 2016 SAMSUNG UE55KS8080.

Scratch that. Must have been a delay in the IP and DNS settings all matching up, or the restrictions catching up with one another.

Anyway, a short time after a wrote this, and ofer watching a single episode, our UK Amazon Prime account would no longer sync with the TV. Nor could we could no longer purchase or rent movies either via the TV (although the option was there) as the credit card isnt UK based, so we're back at square one, despite having paid for the (UK) Amazon Prime annual subscription.

So, I have since tried a "proper "subscription to the Swiss and German (?) version of amazon prime forom https://www.primevideo.com/ and yes that seems to work, but the range of content (films and series) seems drastically truncated.

Seriously it was almost so much simpler in the days of free torrents.

Amazon Prime is now available in CH, so an Amazon.de Prime account will give you access to whatever is available in Switzerland if it detects a Swiss IP.
Do you know if this is also possible via amazon.fr ?
