5 Ways To Get Amazon Prime On TV

If you’re an Amazon Prime member looking for ways to watch your free streaming videos on your TV, you’re in luck: there are plenty of possibilities. You can view Amazon Prime Video on your TV in a variety of ways other than using a web browser.

Amazon Prime is a popular subscription service that provides members with free shipping on a variety of Amazon products. However, the subscription (now $119 a year for most people, with a student plan available) includes much more than just shipping – you get a bunch of discounts, as well as access to streaming music and film.

Amazon Prime can be accessed through a variety of devices, including televisions, mobile devices, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, Amazon gadgets, and streaming media devices. A Prime Video channel is almost definitely included on your smart TV.

Prime Video may be accessed on older TVs via a streaming device or by using an HDMI cable to connect your phone or tablet.

Different Ways to Watch Amazon Prime on Your TV

1. Download Amazon Prime From Your TV App store

Amazon Prime Videos are available on a variety of Smart TVs from a variety of top TV manufacturers. These include, but are not limited to Sony, Samsung, LG, and Panasonic televisions. All you have to do is download the app on your TV, open it, and log in with your Amazon credentials.

2. Use a streaming device

Streaming media devices are small, handy devices that allow you to stream content to your TV. They essentially make your TV smarter at a low cost. Choose between Fire TV and Apple TV to watch Amazon Prime Video.

3. Cast Amazon Prime from Phone or Tablet to a TV

You can connect your tablet (such as an iPad) or even your phone to a TV using the appropriate cable. For an iPad, you’ll need a Lightning to Digital AV converter, which can be purchased at any Apple shop or online.

4. Connect with Your PC

You’ll need to verify your FireStick Basic Edition with the account information connected with your Amazon Prime or Prime Video membership to view Prime Video on it.

To do so, navigate to “Settings” and then “My Account” on the Fire TV menu. On this screen, if your device is not registered, a “Register” option appears. When prompted, select it and enter your Amazon account credentials. Then, from the Home screen, open the Prime Video app.

Simply log in to your Amazon Prime account using an up-to-date web browser. If you don’t have a game console or streaming player, you can use an HDMI cable to connect your laptop or tablet to your TV. Then, set your TV to HDMI mode, and your tablet/laptop screen should appear on the TV. It’s not perfect, but it usually gets the job done.

To connect Amazon Prime Video to Apple TV, go to the Home Screen and open the App Store app, then search for Prime Video and choose “Get.” Then, from the Home Screen, click Prime Video to open the app.

5. Google Chromecast

Chromecast is a one-of-a-kind device that allows you to “cast” information from your tablet, phone, or computer to your TV wirelessly. The Chromecast connects to your TV via an HDMI connector, just like most other streaming devices. However, it then wirelessly plays video (and other stuff) from your device.

While there is no specific Amazon Prime Video app for Chromecast, you may play Amazon Prime Video material on your Android phone or computer and then “cast” it to your TV via Chromecast.

How To Cast Prime Video to Your TV

You can “cast” Prime Video to your tv screens if you have a Google Chromecast, a Fire TV device, or an Android TV.

  • Turn on your television. On your iPhone, Android phone, iPad, or Fire tablet, open the Prime Video app. Confirm that you’re signed into your Prime Video app and that your device is linked to the same network (Fire TV, Android TV, or Chromecast).
  • Make sure your Android TV, Fire TV, or Chromecast device is turned on and connected to the internet. Casting from the Prime Video app on iOS to Fire TV and Fire Tablet to Chromecast/Android TV is not possible.
  • On your Prime Video app, tap the Cast icon. Your TV will then display a Ready to Cast screen.
  • Choose the device you want to use.
  • Choose a movie that you want to view. This title will then be displayed on the Chromecast-connected display. Playback, audio tracks, and subtitles will all be controlled from the mobile device.

You must stop Casting to that device if you want to adjust the Subtitle settings on Chromecast for iOS devices. Choose a style for your Subtitles by going to Settings > Accessibility > Subtitles and Captioning > Style.

If you want to utilize other fonts or sizes, you may easily build a new style. While a title is being Cast on an Android smartphone, tap the three-dot menu on the screen. Turn on Show captions and select Subtitle styles. From that menu, you can also choose Caption size and style options.

Note:

In addition to the Casting option, if you have a Fire TV device or a Chromecast with Google TV, you can utilize the device’s remote and access the Prime Video app on that device.
