If you are an avid movie watcher, you have probably already discovered the genius of online movie streaming. There are plenty of websites that offer this convenient service, Amazon being one of the leaders.

If you watch movies more than the average bear, there is also a service called Amazon Prime which allows you to stream movies and television shows without commercial breaks and it also gives you an unlimited amount of streaming.

 

There are plenty of other things that an Amazon Prime membership does, such as allows you fast and free shipping on your purchases on Amazon.com – but for the movie goers there seems to be a slight problem. In some countries, this service is blocked, so people outside the US cannot get access to a service that should be  available to all.

There is a way to Watch Amazon Prime outside the USA, and that is with a VPN. A VPN essentially gives your IP address the appearance that you are from somewhere else so that you can gain access to websites around the world. In this case, you would connect to a server in the United States so that you could gain access to Amazon Prime easily.

Before you go purchase a VPN, you have to do some research because there are several different options and services. Because you just want to watch Amazon Prime outside the US, you could use something less secure then someone who needed to do business transactions overseas.

There are four popular different options, PPTP, L2TP, IPSec and SSL. For ease of installation and use, PPTP and L2TP both have clients preinstalled on most computers so there are less steps to get started. SSL is considered to be more secure than the others because of the limitations it places on the users range.

Mobile devices like iOS/Apple stuff and Android devices can use PPTP and L2TP only.  Laptops can go with SSL if you want.  SSL works on Mac, WIndows, and Linux.

 

On top of these options, there are a number of different hosting sites that offer service. You have to consider price, and also where their servers are located. You would not want to sign up for a VPN host that does not have a server in the area you are trying to access! For Amazon Prime, you need an IP in The USA, so make sure the service you choose has a VPN server in The US. You can browse a great list on Mr.VPN!  Of our VPN services recommended below, all have US Servers, and can get you the American IP you need.
