Amazon Prime is a reliable video streaming service used across the world. The service provides access to stream tons of movies, tv shows, documentaries, and Amazon originals. Sony Smart TV users can easily access this service with the help of a standalone Amazon Prime Video app.
In general, the latest models of Sony Smart TV come with a pre-installed Amazon Prime Video app. If not, you can download the app easily as Sony Smart TVs are powered by Android OS. Like your Android device, launch the Google Play Store app, search for the Amazon Prime app, and then download it.
Activate Amazon Video app
Once you have downloaded the app, you need to link the Amazon account you used to purchase Prime membership. If you haven’t subscribed for Prime membership, visit primevideo.com and sign you for a prime account ($12.99/month and $119/year).
Launch the Amazon Video app and click Sign in and Start watching menu.
The app will display an alpha-numeric code along with an activation link (primevideo.com/mytv).
By using a browser on your PC or mobile, visit the provided activation link and sign in to the account that you used to get Prime membership.
Once logged in, enter the activation code displayed on the TV screen and select Register Device.
Upon registering your Sony Smart TV, the Amazon Prime Video will load automatically to display the media contents.
Watch movies and TV shows
After activating the app, select a movie or TV show that you want to watch. Explore the categories to find the desired video with ease. You can use the search bar to find a movie. Once selected, click the Play icon to watch the movie. Depending on the speed of your internet connection, the quality of the video will vary.
If you want to download a media, tap the download icon instead of the play icon. Select a video quality (low, medium, and high) and save the media for offline streaming.
Use streaming devices
If your Sony Smart TV doesn’t run on Android TV, you can use streaming devices like Chromecast, Roku, Firestick, and Apple TV to watch Prime video content. Using Chromecast, you can cast the Amazon Prime videos from your smartphone or Windows device to Sony TV. At the same time, the other devices have a built-in app store to download the Amazon Prime Video app.
Make sure that your TV is connected to a standard internet connection for high-quality streaming. Drop your queries and feedback in the comments section.
