Remember you'll need an Amazon Prime account to actually view content, the below guide just shows you how to install the Amazon Prime Video app.
Through a smartphone
To watch via your mobile device, download the Amazon Prime application from the relevant iOS or Android app store. Once you login to your account you should be good to go.
Through a gaming console
Amazon Prime Video is compatible with PS3, PS4, PS5 and Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S. 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. For PS5, access the "Media" tab, select the "All Apps" icon at the top-left corner, search for Amazon Prime Video and once selected, opt for "Download".
If you have a Microsoft Xbox One, Series X or Series S, 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, Apple TV, Telstra TV and Fetch, 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.
To get Amazon Prime Video on the Fetch box, go to Menu, then Apps, then Amazon Prime Video. If you're an existing Amazon Prime Video subscriber, choose "Sign in and start watching". Follow the prompts to register your device. If you're new to Amazon Prime Video, choose "Register on the Amazon website" and follow the prompts.
If you have Telstra TV, in the menu go to the App Store. Choose the Amazon Prime Video app and select OK. Select Add app and confirm; the app will now appear on your home screen.
Through a laptop
Simply access Amazon Prime Video via an up-to-date web browser and login to your account. If you have a PC that runs Microsoft Windows 10 or higher, you can download the Amazon Prime Video app from the Microsoft Store and view through there. Open up the Microsoft Store, search for Prime Video For Windows and select "Get".
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.
Through Foxtel iQ
If you're a Foxtel subscriber and have either the iQ4 or iQ5 box, you can access the Amazon Prime Video app. First, ensure your iQ box is connected to the Internet.
To find the Amazon Prime Video app, press "Home" on your Foxtel remote and scroll across to the Apps menu, highlight the Amazon Prime Video app and press "Select".
If you have the Foxtel Voice Remote, you can say, "Go to apps" to be taken to the apps section. Once there you can navigate to the Amazon Prime Video app.
