Find out how you can watch Amazon Prime video content on your TV with our helpful guide.
What is Amazon Prime Video?
Amazon Prime Video is Amazon’s streaming service, allowing subscribers to stream a variety of films and TV series. Much like other streaming services, Amazon features its own original programming that you can’t see anywhere else. Along these, you can also enjoy the range of third-party films and TV series, such as Futurama, The X-Files, Lost and more.
Can I get Amazon Prime on Sky?
Unlike with Netflix, you can’t yet get Amazon Prime Video bundled in as part of your Sky TV deal. This means that you’ll need to sign up to Amazon Prime on your own in order to watch the content available there. While this might seem annoying or drawn out, it’s actually relatively simple to sign up to Amazon and watch the content via your Sky Box.

Can I get Amazon Prime on Sky Q?
If you have Sky Q Box, you’ll be able to watch Amazon Prime Video content by downloading the available app from the Apps Menu on the Sky Q home page. If you have a remote with voice functionality, you can say ‘Open Prime Video’ to get the app up.
From there, you can sign in to your Amazon Prime account and begin watching. If you don’t have an existing Amazon account, you’ll have to use your computer or smartphone in order to set one up via the Amazon website.
Can I place Amazon orders through Sky TV?
With the Amazon Prime Video app, you’ll only be able to watch video content, and won’t be able to order items for delivery like you would if you were using Amazon normally. However, you will be able to buy content that isn’t available on Prime Video and add it to your library via the app, where you’ll be able to watch it back whenever you want.
How can I watch Amazon Prime Video on TV?
If you don’t have a Sky Q box, you’ll still be able to watch Amazon Prime Video on your TV, providing you have a Smart TV. The vast majority of Smart TVs allow you to download an Amazon Video app directly to the TV, just like you’d be able to with a Sky Q Box. However, if you have an older model Sky box and a standard TV, you’ll have to watch via another method, such as smartphone, tablet, games console or laptop.
What broadband speed do I need to stream Amazon Prime Video?
Amazon recommends that if you’re streaming in standard definition, you should make sure your broadband has a minimum download speed of 1Mbps, which goes up to 5Mbps if you’re looking to stream in HD. Amazon Video also includes 4K content, so you’ll need a stronger connection if you’re looking to watch in 4K.
How much is Amazon Prime?
To get the full Amazon Prime, it’ll cost you £7.99 if you decide to pay monthly, or you can pay an annual fee or £79.00. This gives you all the benefits of Prime, including one-day delivery, Prime Video, Amazon Music and exclusive deals on the site. You can, however, take Prime Video on its own, which is slightly cheaper per month and will only allow you to stream Prime content.
How do I cancel Amazon Prime?
In order to cancel your Amazon Prime membership, you’ll need to go on the website or mobile app, go to your account settings, then ‘Memberships and subscriptions’. From there, you’ll be able to manage your subscription and cancel it if you’d like to. You’ll also be able to manage all other subscriptions you may have on top of Prime, such as Starz Play or BFI Player.
How long is the Amazon Prime free trial?
If you’ve never subscribed to Amazon Prime Video before, you’ll be able to sign up to a 30-day free trial in order to try it out and see if you like it. With the trial, you’ll have access to all Prime Video content, with automatically charging you for a month at the end unless you cancel.
