Through a gaming console
Amazon Prime Video is compatible with PS3, PS4 and Xbox One. Each console has an online store where you can download games and applications, including Amazon Prime Video.
For PS3, open the PlayStation Store from the XrossMediaBar (XMB), then select "Apps" and then "Movies and TV". Find Prime Video and opt for "Download". For PS4, open "TV & Video" from the XrossMediaBar (XMB), find Prime Video, and select the "Download" option. Next, select "Start" to launch the app.
If you have an Xbox One, open the "Store" tab from the Home Screen. Find Prime Video and select the "Get" option. Finally, select "Launch" to access the app.
Through a streaming device
Streaming media devices are convenient little gadgets that enable you to stream content to your television. They basically make your TV smarter in a very affordable way. Amazon Prime Video works with Fire TV and Apple TV, so take your pick.
To watch Prime Video on your Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, you will need to register your device using the account information associated with your Amazon Prime or Prime Video membership. To do this, select "Settings" from the Fire TV menu and go to "My Account". If your device is not registered, a "Register" option displays on this screen. Select it and enter your Amazon account information when prompted. Then, open the Prime Video app from the Home screen.
To add Amazon Prime Video to Apple TV, open the App Store application from the Home Screen, search for Prime Video and select the "Get" option. Then, select Prime Video from the Home Screen to launch the app.
Through an HDMI cable
If you don't have a game console or streaming player, you can connect your laptop or tablet directly to your TV via an HDMI cable. Then, switch your TV to HDMI mode and you should see your tablet/laptop screen mirrored on the TV. It's not perfect, but it usually works.
