Watch Amazon Instant Outside the USA

If you are a big movie fan, you have probably already heard about to the unlimited world of online movie streaming. There are several websites that offer this service. Among the leaders is Amazon Instant aka Amazon Prime

Hosted by one of the Internet’s largest web stores in the world, you can gain access to nearly any movie or television series you can imagine all right at your fingertips – in the United States that is. If you have ever tried to watch Amazon Instant outside The USA, you probably already know that this can be a bit of a struggle. Amazon has foreign IP addresses blocked so it is nearly impossible for anyone to stream except those located in the US.

The good news is that there is a way to hide your IP address to give it the appearance that it is located in The USA. It’s called a VPN (virtual private network), and it works for anyone around the world. If you are trying to watch Amazon Instant outside The USA, all you would do is connect to a server in the USA and you immediately have access. There are several different hosting websites that have servers around the world, so wherever the file or website is that you are trying to access – a VPN will be the best answer.

There are different ways to encode your IP address with a VPN. The four most popular are PPTP, L2TP, IPSec, and SSL. Depending on what you are trying to access and what device you’ll be using, one of these will work for you. SSL is the most secure and is usually for people who are trying to do business outside of their home country.

This is a good option for those that will be using a public internet access point like shared wifi, cafes,  airports, or dormitories. PPTP and L2TP have easier clients to access and are easier to set up.  They might be better for someone on a private  connection.  PPTP and L2TP are the VPN protocols for Android and iOS systems.

You also have to take into account where the file or websites are that you are trying to access. Making sure the VPN site that you are buying from has a server in The USA is crucial!  Without the US VPN server Amazon instant streaming features will not work because this is only available in the US.
