How to unblock Amazon Prime Video with Proton VPN

Prime Video is Amazon’s video-on-demand streaming service. It is the only place you can find Amazon-produced content, including The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, and Sneaky Pete. You can also stream some sports, like the English Premier League, on Prime Video as well.

Proton VPN users can watch all their favorite shows on the Australian, Canadian, French, German, Indian, Italian, Swiss, Japan, UK, and US versions of Amazon Prime Video no matter where they are! 

Please note, however, that you must have an Amazon account registered in the country you would like to stream from. It is technically possible to manually change where your account is registered, but doing this very impractical for most people. Proton VPN therefore offers this service so that Prime members can access their home catalogue of titles when traveling or living abroad.

Watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is not the only thing you can stream with Proton VPN. You can also watch HBO MaxDisney+, and Netflix. See all the streaming services you can access with our streaming guide for new users.

How to watch Amazon Prime Video with Proton VPN

To watch the Australian, Canadian, French, German, Indian, Italian, Swiss, UK, Japanese, and US versions of Amazon Prime Video, you will need to connect to any Plus server located in your desired country (e.g., to watch the German version of Amazon Prime Video, you need to connect to a Plus server in Germany). As noted above you will also need an Amazon Prime account registered to an address in that country.

Plus servers have a “P” icon next to them in our macOS and Windows app. They can be found in the Plus servers list on our Android and iOS app.

On your Android TV (app currently in beta testing), connecting to any of these countries will automatically connect you to a Plus server if you have the right subscription.

Plus servers are available for Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers. For the fastest and most reliable connection, please connect to the server that is closest to your current location. To find the nearest servers to you, check the full list of our servers.

Proton VPN does not condone the use of our VPN service to bypass copyright regulations.

Step 1:

Get a VPN Plus or Proton Unlimited subscription

If you already have a VPN Plus, Proton Unlimited, or Visionary (legacy users only)  account, you can skip to step 2.

If you’re a new user, sign up for Proton VPN.

If you have a Free plan, upgrade your account by logging in and selecting VPN Plus or Proton Unlimited from your account Dashboard.

Step 2:

Install our VPN app

You need to download the Proton VPN app for your operating system. You can securely stream your favorite shows on Windows, macOS, and Linux devices, or on the go with your Android or iOS devices.

If you have an Android TV, you can join the beta testing program and install the app directly on your device. If you already have our app, you can skip to step 3.

For installation help, here are our support guides:

Step 3:

Buy a Prime Video subscription

If you already have an Amazon Prime or a Prime Video subscription, you can skip to step 4.

To have access to all the shows on Prime Video with our VPN, you’ll need either a valid Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription. An Amazon Prime subscription costs $12.99 per month or $119 per year (plus tax) and comes with other perks, like the ability to rent certain Kindle books for free and free one-day shipping. A subscription for just Prime Video costs $8.99 per month. You can also purchase videos through Amazon for streaming. (UK Amazon Prime Video and German Amazon Prime Video have similar offers.)

Step 4:

Start watching Prime Video securely with Proton VPN!

Connect to a Plus server in any of the countries listed above, log in to Prime Video, then kick back and relax.

If you experience issues watching Prime Video, please try the following:

Prime Video may not always work. If you have tried all possible options and are still having issues or if you have any questions, please contact our Support team.

    Do I need to change my VPN configuration to connect to a specific plus server instead of using the whole-country server configuration file? Thank you for clarifying.
    -Travis

  2. ProtonVPN Team

    Hello Travis, yes, it would be the best that you specified a certain Plus server since country server could connect you to the basic server too.

  3. Rohan

    Cannot watch SonyLiv and Amazon Prime Video India

  4. ProtonVPN Team

    Hello Rohan, currently we do not support Amazon Prime India.

  5. SC

    Amazon prime doesn’t seem to work through the iOS app.

  6. ProtonVPN Team

    Hello, as disclaimed in the article “Secure Amazon streaming is not available on mobile phones with VPN right now, only desktop devices are supported.”

  7. Richie

    Hello Team,
    I’ve tried a few US Plus servers and none of them work with Amazon Prime Video. Do you have to have an US Amazon Prime Account or any Amazon Prime Video account works?

  8. ProtonVPN Team

    Hello Richie, it does work for us so please contact our customer support team for detailed investigation. https://protonvpn.com/support-form

  9. Mo Green

    I am not able to watch amazon prime UK, even when I’m in the UK and choose a UK server and I have a UK amazon account.
    I can not watch Netflix either, you get an error message stating that you are using some kind of proxy.

  10. ProtonVPN Team

    Hello Mo, Currently we do not support amazon prime UK, but for Netflix, we need more detailed investigation in this case, so please contact our customer support team for that. https://protonvpn.com/support-form
