Can I watch Amazon Videos on my Xbox abroad?

Amazon on Xbox abroadI have an Xbox and currently I also have an Amazon Prime subscription. I am moving to Spain next year and would like to watch Instant Videos and Prime videos on my Xbox, but I have heard that it is impossible in Spain. Is that true?

Thank you for asking! It is kind of true that it is not working if you first try to watch Amazon Instant Videos on your Xbox in Spain. The reason is that the videos are protected with a so called geo-block, meaning that the films are only made available to people in the USA. But, luckily you can bypass such regulations and thus you will be able to watch Amazon Videos on Xbox abroad, meaning that it does not really matter where you are in the world, because it will work! This is what you need to do!

These instructions are very similar to the descriptions that you need to follow to be able to watch Amazon Videos on Playstation from abroad!
