    I believe this thread is about the Amazon Prime Global Video (local HK approved content paid using HK account), not the US version of Amazon prime. I haven't tried the local HK version yet as I am also setup in the US.

    Streaming of US Amazon Prime:

    I am streaming Amazon Prime US with Unlocator (Smart DNS) and the DNS setup via my ASUS router (Parent Control > DNS Filtering function) for my Fire TV stick's mac address specifically (so all other devices/computers will use standard local DNS). Works like a charm, 1+ years. I used VPN prior to that, but that wasn't so smooth.

    sorry, would you mind explaining exactly what you do? I'd like to stream my U.K. account and I have the fire stick too.

    Thanks in advance!

    It depends what kind of router you have and how much of an expert you are setting up network devices. The easy way:

    1. Sign up for Unlocator, they have 7-day a free trial as far as I remember (and if you use my link to sign up I think I will get some credit next time I renew).

    https://unlocator.com/account/aff/go...f=geoexpat.com

    I assume under Unlocator region settings you want to set all the things you can to UK. I have mine set to US.

    2. Setup the Unlocator DNS IP addresses on your Fire TV:

    https://support.unlocator.com/custom...f=geoexpat.com

    (this step is different than my setup, I am using DHCP and a special DNS feature of my router instead - but I am not sure how well you can configure your router and what type you have)

    3. All should be good now.
