UK Prime abroad?

Do you have an Amazon Prime account in the United Kingdom? Are you currently out traveling and had planned to watch an episode of Transparent or maybe a good film included in your Amazon Prime subscription, but now you are not allowed because you are abroad. Or maybe you live outside the UK and want to gain access to UK Prime for the first time? What can be done?

The problem described is a very general problem, because you are not allowed to watch UK Amazon Prime from outside England. In other words, if you try to watch and enjoy your current Prime subscription from abroad you will not be allowed, even if you have payed for your subscription. If you do not even have an Amazon Prime subscription in England yet, then you will have problems signing up for one as well. What can be done?

The same is true if you have a Prime subscription in the United States (or in Germany), meaning that you are only allowed to watch it inside the United States (or in Germany).

Why is that?

UK Prime is only available to UK Prime members located in the United Kingdom. Because, UK Prime is only allowed to stream the content to members located in the United Kingdom, so even if you have a valid membership you will not be allowed to enjoy it if your IP address tells that you are located somewhere else. What is your IP address? Where are you located according to it? Check it out here! If you there will see that you are located outside the United Kingdom that is the problem and that is the reason why you are not allowed to watch your Amazon Prime subscription.

What is the solution?

If you want to bypass this problem and enjoy your current Prime membership (or if you do not have one sign up for one), then you will simply need to get yourself an IP address in the United Kingdom. This can be done in several ways, but a brilliant way of doing so is by using the VPN services of PureVPN. If you click the button beneath you will visit their website and if you sign up for their services you can at once download their VPN application and connect to a server in the UK. You will then have an IP address in England and you will again be able to enjoy your UK Prime subscription no matter where you might be located in the world. And, you can in the same way use PureVPN to enjoy your US Prime subscription or German Prime subscription, but you will then need to connect to a server in the US or in Germany.
