What is Amazon Prime Video?

 

Amazon Prime Video is a video streaming service that comes with your membership to Amazon Prime. It includes movies, TV shows and original content from Amazon Studios. It's available on most devices including computers, tablets, smartphones and Smart TVs.

 

If you're an Amazon Prime member, you have access to Prime Video. You can use it on any device that supports the Amazon App Store or has the Amazon Video app installed.

 

Amazon Prime Video is available on any device that supports the Amazon App Store or has the Amazon Video app installed. You can also cast content from your phone to other devices using an HDMI connector, Wi-Fi connection and Miracast/Airplay technology.

 

How to Watch Amazon Prime Video on a Smart TV 

 

Amazon Prime Video is only available for certain smart TVs. If you have a smart TV and want to watch Amazon Prime Video on it, here's how you can do it:

 

Cast Using the Mobile App 

 

You can cast Amazon Prime Video to your TV by installing the mobile app, which is available for iOS and Android. Once you've installed it on your phone, open it up and tap or click the Cast icon at the top of the screen. On an iPhone or iPad, this will be in the top right corner; on an Android device, it's likely to be in a box that appears when you pull down from the top menu bar of whatever app you're using (if there isn't one already).

 

Once you've tapped or clicked to initiate casting, select which device on which you want to watch Amazon Prime (for example "TCL Mini LED TV" if that's what your TV is called). Then choose whether or not you want to cast over wireless network connections as opposed to just through HDMI cables (which aren't always convenient). Your content should start streaming immediately!

 

Cast Using Your Computer 

 

With your computer, you can cast Amazon Prime Video to your TV using the Chrome browser.

 

First, open up the browser on your computer and navigate to Amazon.com/Video. Then, click "Streaming Devices" in the left sidebar menu and select which streaming device you want (for example Apple TV).

 

Next, click on the "Cast" button at the top right corner of your screen. This will bring up a list of available devices for you to choose from; select which one you want and then select whether or not you want to cast over wireless network connections. Your content should start streaming immediately!

 

If you're having trouble casting Amazon Prime Video to your TV, try restarting both devices and making sure that the Chrome browser is up-to-date. 

 

Chromecast

 

Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into your TV's HDMI port and allows you to play video from your smartphone or tablet on the big screen. You can also stream online content directly to Chromecast through supported apps like Netflix, HBO NOW and Hulu.

 

To use Google Chromecast with Prime Video, first you need to update your Prime Video App to the latest version for either iOS or Android and follow below steps:

 

Choose the Cast icon from the Prime Video app. 

 

Choose the Chromecast device you want to employ.
