How to get American Amazon Prime Video on PS4 anywhere in the world? Amazon Instant Video is a great streaming service if you own an Amazon Prime subscription. If you are an American expat living in UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, or France, you cannot watch US Amazon Instant Video on PS4 or PS3 due to geo-restrictions.

Amazon Instant Video on PS4 outside USA Unblock with Smart DNS Proxy
If you try to access your Amazon Prime on your Playstation console outside USA, you will be shown the following error message. “This video isn’t available due to geographical licensing restrictions.” Smart DNS allows you to trick Amazon to think you are located in the USA by redirecting parts of your traffic which shows your location.
- Smart DNS can be directly setup on PS3 and PS4. No need to configure your router or install additional software.
- Smart DNS does not change your IP address. You can still watch all local streaming channels on your Playstation while unblocking Amazon Prime.
- Your download speeds are not affected by Smart DNS.
- Smart DNS also unblocks other US channels on your PS3/PS4 such as HBO GO, Hulu, Crackle, Crunchyroll, and Netflix.

How to Watch Amazon Instant Video on PS4 with VPN
VPN can also be used to access geo-restricted channels like Amazon Instant Video on PS4 outside USA. In case you use VPN, all your traffic will be channeled via a US VPN server. This in turn will give you an American IP address. Thus, you can watch Amazon Prime videos on your PlayStation device abroad.
- Neither the PS4 or PS3 have a VPN client. Therefore, you need to setup VPN on your router instead. Not all routers are VPN-enabled either.
- Alternatively, you could setup VPN on your PC and then enable network sharing to enable VPN on Playstation.
- Enabling VPN on Playstation unblocks all American channels on your PS4/PS3. This includes PS Vue, PS Now, Hulu, HBO GO, Amazon Instant Video, and Crackle.
- VPN is secure to use. All you traffic is encrypted to protect your privacy.
