Amazon Prime is a popular streaming service that lets you watch Prime Originals, movies, TV shows, and web series. This service has an extensive collection of video content from all over the world. With this service, you can watch tons of Prime Video titles on your device. The service is also accessible on the Kodi app with the help of a dedicated add-on. By installing Amazon Prime on Kodi, you will have access to nearly 100+ premium channels along with tons of movies and TV episodes. But, the service is only accessible to users who had an eligible Amazon Prime membership. In this article, we’ve covered the steps to install Amazon Prime Video on Kodi.

Why do you need a VPN for Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime videos are easily watchable with the help of a dedicated Amazon Prime Instant Video Addon. But the media available in this addon are geo-restricted in certain locations. To bypass those restrictions, you need a VPN on your Kodi device. Without a VPN service, your connection with the Kodi app will be exposed to hackers, ISPs, viruses, malware, and surveillance. Hence, install a high-quality VPN on your device. We recommend you to use NordVPN for its speed and the ability to bypass the Netflix restrictions without exposing your original IP.
