Why do You need a VPN?

Due to certain reasons, some of the movies, TV shows, and originals available in the Amazon Prime app are geo-restricted in certain countries. For example, if you stream US prime content from outside the country, you will get an error message stating that “This title is not available in your location.” To avoid this, you must install a VPN on your Xbox. VPN or Virtual Private network routes your internet traffic through an intermediary server in a location of your choice and makes it appear that you’re somewhere else. Along with that, it also encrypts your traffic to make sure that no one tracks your online activities.

  • Select the best VPN and install it on your Xbox. Since Xbox doesn’t have dedicated Android apps, you have to follow other methods to access VPN on Xbox. Check out how to access/use VPN on Xbox consoles?
  • Launch the VPN and connect to the server where the particular Prime video is accessible.
  • Now, open the prime video app and stream that geo-restricted media without any hassle.

Selecting the best VPN to unblock the Amazon prime geo-restriction is always a difficult task. Hence, we recommend you to use ExpressVPN. It is the fastest VPN available on the market to bypass the geo-restrictions created by Amazon prime or any other streaming services.
