Does PrivateVPN work on Fire TV?

Are you thinking about whether or not PrivateVPN is the VPN provider you are going to use on your Fire TV? Or have you bought a VPN subscription with PrivateVPN, and now you wonder if you can use it on your Fire TV or on your Fire TV Stick as well?

Last week, I wanted to give PrivateVPN a try on my Fire TV Stick. It was really easy to install their application, and I quickly got it up and running. But, as I tried to log in with my username and password, I got this error message about an error. I had no clue what to do, so I contacted their support.

I got a very quick answer, and I discovered that I had a different VPN connection running. As a result, I couldn’t log in with PrivateVPN while I had a different VPN connection running. I quickly disconnected from the ExpressVPN server, logged in with PrivateVPN and connected.

PrivateVPN and Fire TV Stick

Did PrivateVPN work well on the Fire TV?

To be honest, it worked perfectly. I could easily connect to any of their servers, and if I connected to a Netflix friendly server in Canada, I could just open the Netflix application and stream all the available content on Canadian Netflix.

In the same way, I could connect to an Amazon Prime friendly server in the USA and stream Amazon Prime content, and I could let the list go on.

PrivateVPN has good speeds on their servers, meaning that I didn’t experience much latency either using the service.

CyberghostVPN is another VPN that I have used with the Fire TV. They have a function that automatically connects to one of their VPN servers as the Fire TV comes to life and uses certain WiFi networks. This is useful if you always want to use a VPN, but to be honest, it isn’t really needed. At first, I thought I missed this function with PrivateVPN, but I really don’t. After all, I change VPN servers frequently (as I want to access different Netflix regions and so), and that is why I can just as well connect manually to a server in the country I am interested in.

Visit the PrivateVPN website(working very well with Fire TV)

In other words, I am very satisfied with my testing of the PrivateVPN service on my Amazon Fire TV Stick. I have also used it to watch FuboTV, Hulu, and some more services, and I didn’t have trouble at all.

If you want to give it a try, click the button above. If you have any PrivateVPN experience that you want to share, write a comment. You can also read a PrivateVPN review in the IP Address Guide.

Do not forget that PrivateVPN also can be used as you try to stream Amazon Prime on your laptop, your computer, your tablet or your phone while abroad. You can simply pick Amazon Prime as your requested service, and the application will automatically connect you to a server in the United States working with Amazon Prime. It is really smooth and easy.

One could say that the application isn’t the nicest out there. A lot could be done with it to make it look nicer. But, I would much rather have an ugly application that is working well, than a beautiful application that doesn’t really do the job.

I hope some of your questions have been answered in this article. If you have any further questions or comments, write them in the comment field. I will do my best to answer within 12 hours, at most 24 hours.

Have a wonderful day and enjoying watching content online on your Fire TV using the VPN services of PrivateVPN!

Coming to Amazon Prime in September 2019

I hope you have lots of programs planned for September 2019, because Amazon Prime in the United States will not bring lots of content worth streaming. Curious about what’s coming to Amazon Prime Video in September? Check the full list here!

I guess I should be enthusiastic and spread the joys of owning an Amazon Prime subscription. But, as I looked through the list of what’s coming to Amazon Prime on September 2019, I simply couldn’t find many reasons to smile and to rejoice. So, I guess I have got to go with honest instead, and to be honest, September on Amazon Prime is really crappy.

Coming to Prime Video in September
Undone – a new Amazon series coming in September 2019

Of course, the fact that Leslie Nielsen will come to Amazon Prime in September with his Naked Gun movies might be cool… but, we are in 2019, and it shouldn’t be a highlight when more than 20-year-old movies are added to a streaming platform. In the same way, the original Mad Max movies from the 80s will come to Amazon Prime, but should that really be a highlight?

If I should mention two more movies, it will be Face/Off and Event Horizon, both from 1997. These are awesome movies, and when I watched Event Horizon, I had trouble sleeping for a couple of days… it was really scary. Face/Off is a very different movie, but a truly brilliant one starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. It is really well made, and it is such a brilliant plot that I feel like watching it again thinking about the story and the plot of the movie.

Besides the mentioned movies, I would probably go to HBO or Netflix to watch some great content on those streaming services instead.

Suits season 9 is heating up!

The final season of Suits is currently airing on USA Network. I am watching the new episodes weekly, and to be honest, it hasn’t really been a fantastic season so far. But, as I have just finished episode five (meaning that we are halfway), I have got to say that things are starting to heat up!

Unfortunately, it is impossible to stream Suits season 9 with your Amazon Prime subscription. A month ago, Suits season 8 was added to Amazon Prime, but we still have to wait for almost a year before the final season will be added to Amazon prime (hopefully). As a result, I am not streaming Suits season 9 on Amazon Prime, but instead, I stream Suits season 9 on Netflix. It is really convenient and easy, especially considering how the new episodes are added to Netflix only 24 hours after they have aired in the United States.

Mike Ross gave a little boost to Suits season 9 with his appearance.

What makes Suits season 9 interesting?

There hasn’t been a lot of interesting events taking place in Suits season 9 so far, the way I see it. It almost feels like a really corrupt business, and the new character introduced to us as Faye Richardson is doing her best to clean things up. That ain’t easy, but it hasn’t been very interesting either. It should also be said that a lot of the plots and events have been boring.

But, as the fifth episode got to an end, I sat with the feeling that things are heating up, and I now look really forward to the upcoming episodes.

It is interesting to follow the relationship between Harvey and Donna (even though that seems to be solid and without much conflict), it is always a joy to watch the character of Louis Litt, and then you have the rest of the guys in the office.

As you probably know, Mike Ross also returns to Suits for the final season. He made a guest appearance in the fifth episode of season 9, and the rumors have it that he will return again for the ninth and the tenth episode. Whether or not that is so, I cannot confirm, but let us at least hope! I didn’t really like the way he appeared in the fifth episode, but I was still glad to have him back.

How will the Suits story end?

That is a question I do not have an answer to. I could easily imagine some super strange end in which the company shuts down and they all retire from their careers. Or maybe they all end up in prison for some reason? Or maybe they become “nice and clean” lawyers, accepted by Faye, and thus, they will be able to let the business run on as usual? And maybe it will end with Mike returning to work for the company again?

It is impossible to say, but I am more than interested enough to look forward to the upcoming episodes of Suits!

As I mentioned earlier, you cannot stream Suits season 9 on Amazon Prime, but if you want to stream one of the first 8 seasons of the show, follow these instructions to get access to Amazon Prime abroad.

Is Suits on Prime Video?

No, you cannot find Suits on Prime Video. The only way to stream it on Amazon is by owning an Amazon Prime subscription, or by manually buying the episodes or seasons.

Can I watch the same content on Amazon Prime Video and Prime Video?

Have you heard about Prime Video? Have you heard of Amazon Prime Video? Are these products the same product, or are there differences? If yes, what are the differences?

If you live in the United States and have an Amazon Prime membership, you will get access to a lot of movies and TV shows, and in addition, to Amazon Prime music, faster shipping as you shop, and several other products including Prime Reading, free photo storage and more. But, are the movies and TV shows available with the Amazon Prime membership in the United States the same as the movies and TV series you can watch with a Prime Video subscription in Europe or somewhere else?

Which is the best, Prime Video or Amazon Prime Video?

Prime Video vs Amazon Prime Video?

First of all, it is important to notice that what you can stream with an Amazon Prime subscription will differ greatly between the countries in which such a subscription is available. In other words, the movies and TV shows available on Amazon Prime in the United States are not necessarily the same as those that you can stream with an Amazon Prime subscription in Germany or in the United Kingdom.

While you can use the same Netflix subscription all across the world, an Amazon Prime subscription can only be enjoyed in the actual country of your subscription. So, if you have an Amazon Prime subscription in the United States and go to the United Kingdom, you will not be able to stream the content available on Amazon Prime in the UK (like you would with Netflix). As a result, you will have to buy an Amazon Prime subscription in the UK to stream the content available there.

So, if you want to stream your Amazon Prime content in the United States while abroad, follow these instructions.

But, what will happen if you buy a Prime Video subscription in the Czech Republic? What will you be able to stream there?

What can you stream with a Prime Video subscription?

You will at all times be able to stream the original Amazon content with any Prime Video subscription. That is the main profile of Prime Video, meaning that it is, first of all, a platform for streaming the original Amazon content. This can also be streamed with any Amazon Prime subscription.

But, what about all the other movies and TV series available on Amazon Prime?

Based on my experience, you will only find a very small amount of movies and TV series available with a Prime Video subscription. There are some great movies and TV shows available, but in general, this is a platform all about the original Amazon content. That is also why the subscription price is much lower. Currently, you can buy a subscription with a locked price of 3 Euro per month for six months if you sign up for this service. That is less than half the price of an Amazon Prime subscription in Germany (currently costing 7,99 Euro per month).

As you probably understand, this also has to do with the limited amount of movies and TV shows actually available with the service, and also because there are no other “offers” coming together with the Prime Video subscription. This is all about streaming and nothing else!

Is Prime Video worth the money?

If your goal is to stream Amazon Original content, the answer is yes. In fact, it might be even better than an Amazon Prime subscription since the price is much lower. But, if you want to stream much more than just original Amazon content, you will probably end up disappointed at the poor variety of content available on Prime Video!

If you end up buying a Prime Video subscription, make sure to watch the popular and very good Amazon series The Boys, Jack Ryan, Hanna, and all the others!

What is your experience? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Those bad superheroes surprised me (The Boys on Amazon)

I have just watched the first episode of The Boys on Amazon. I didn’t know what to expect before the first episode, only that it was supposed to be about superheroes not only fighting on the good side. I watched the trailer as well, but I had a hard time really understanding what to expect based on the trailer. But, after watching one single episode, I know have a better grip on the story!

I thought The Boys would be about a group of superheroes doing good, but also having trouble with their own personalities. After watching the first episode on Amazon, I got to say that I was kind of correct. But, not entirely.

Who are The Boys?

To my surprise, The Boys isn’t the title of those superheroes, but about a small group of some people actually going against the superheroes. But, why would they need to fight against them or go against the superheroes? Well, it seems as if they aren’t really as good as one would expect.

Hughie Campbell is one of the boys. We meet him at the start of the first episode as he stands with his girlfriend chatting on the street. Suddenly, A-Train (a superhero moving with superspeeds) runs by them and the girlfriend ends up dead after being “torn to pieces” by the superhero moving with superspeed. Hughie isn’t able to be at peace with this, and as he meets Billy Butcher, they decide to go for “The Seven” to get them down. But, it isn’t gonna be that easy.

At the same time, we also meet the brand new member of The Seven, Erin Moriarty, better known as Starlight. She comes with entirely pure intentions to the superhero-assembly, and she is greatly surprised to discover the corrupted morale among the people she had adored until she became one of them. Where will this take her in the coming episode? I don’t know yet!

Why The Boys surprised me (in a positive way)?

After watching the trailer, I didn’t feel like watching The Boys at all. It looked like a mess to me, but I took the time to watch the first episode. And to be honest, it threw me so many curveballs that it caught my attention, and actually made me curious about how this will continue from here.

Yes, the fact that it is so different makes it good. I still have seven more episodes to watch before I get to the end of season 1, and we already know that The Boys has been renewed for a second season. But, based on the pilot episode, this for sure looks good!

Where can you watch The Boys online?

If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, then stream it on Amazon Prime. If you have a Prime Video subscription, stream it on Prime Video. If you do not have either, you better get one of them. You can find out more on how to stream Amazon Prime videos abroad, and those instructions will also help you actually buy an Amazon Prime subscription in the United States.

I do not know of any other TV channels showing this Amazon show currently, so this is the way to watch it. There are some Amazon shows that you can stream on other platforms, but this is not one of them!

How did you like The Boys?

Have you seen the first episode? Have you seen several episodes? How did you like The Boys? I would love to hear your thoughts!

I thought Under the Silver Lake was worth watching…

Every month I write articles about what’s coming to Amazon Prime. One of the highlights for me in July was the arrival of Under the Silver Lake. At least, I thought it was going to be a highlight!

It might sound strange from someone writing blog posts about Amazon Prime, but I normally don’t find the selection of movies and TV shows available on Amazon Prime to be satisfying. It is almost identical to what you can stream on Hulu, only with fewer TV shows available. But, Under the Silver Lake was a movie that was added to Amazon Prime that couldn’t be streamed on Hulu, nor on HBO Now or on Netflix, so this gave me a chance to enjoy the membership. But, was the evening spent watching Under the Silver Lake a success?

Should you watch Under the Silver Lake on Amazon Prime?

If you already have an Amazon Prime membership, feel free to give the movie a try. But, if you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership yet, I would not get one because of this movie. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, except for the fact that I thought it would contain interesting twists and an interesting story. I did get some twists, but they were simply too crazy and ended up being boring. As a result, we were three who watched the first hour of the movie, and I ended up finishing it all by myself. I didn’t watch it till the end because I liked it, but because I am like Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory. Maybe you don’t know what that means? I simply have to finish what I start to have peace in my mind. So, I finished it, and as I finished, I felt as if I had wasted a couple of hours of my life.

Well, I didn’t exactly throw them away, because they helped me write this negative article. But, still – this wasn’t the best movie experience I have had. In fact, it was one of the most boring and disappointing movie experiences I have had in a long time. Maybe it would have been easier if I didn’t look so much forward to watching it?

Have you seen Under the Silver Lake on Amazon Prime? How did you like it?

Do you need help watching Amazon Prime abroad? You can read more about how it can be done at amazonprime.fromabroad.org.

I thought this would be one of the great summer movies on Amazon Prime in 2019, but I was wrong. I guess I should watch The Spy Who Dumped Me instead? Or do you have some other recommendation for me?

New on Amazon Prime in August 2019

What has Amazon Prime got to offer their customers in the United States in August 2019? Are they giving them many reasons to start their Fire TV or to start their laptop or their Prime Video application on a mobile device in August? Find out as you check the list of what’s new on Amazon Prime in August 2019.

I am actually a bit surprised by the list presenting what’s coming to Amazon Prime in August. Do you know why? It feels better and more interesting than it normally does.

If you want action taking place at beautiful sights all around the world, make sure to stream Mission Impossible: Fallout on Amazon Prime in August. I have seen it myself, and it is so great to see Tom Cruise in this series. The movies are funny, and they are still making your palms sweat as he faces challenges all across the world, like when he hangs from the Preachers Pulpit in Norway at the end of the movie (the story tells that it is in Kashmir, but the true location of recording was in Norway). You can also see them parachute above Paris and much more in this quite new action movie!

A Simple Favor is another blockbuster movie coming quickly to Amazon Prime (something we are not very used to). This is a thriller like we know them and love them, packed with curves and interesting turns in the story. I watched this is in the cinema, and even though I didn’t love the movie, I still had a great time watching it. A perfect treat for those who love mysterious thrillers, without getting too scared.

Photograph is the name of an Amazon Original movie. I hadn’t heard about it before writing this article, but it looks like a really nice and romantic movie, ideal for women and for couples. We meet a man who has never really found a girl (and he always wants the approval of his grandmother), and we also get exposed to a girl looking for the one true love. Will they meet?

Want to know even more about the highlights on Amazon Prime in August? Take a look at the following short presentation from YouTube. The full list can be found beneath the video.

Good Omens – can this be good?

I have watched quite a lot of Hanna recently, but as Good Omens also popped up on my screen in ads before a Hanna episode, I decided to take a look at this show as well.

I had no clue at all what Good Omens was about, but the official description at the Prime Video website says:

Aziraphale and Crowley, of Heaven and Hell respectively, have grown rather fond of the Earth. So it’s terrible news that it’s about to end. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing. The Four Horsemen are ready to ride. Everything is going according to the Divine Plan…except that someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. Can our heroes find him and stop Armageddon before it’s too late?

Maybe you expect Good Omens to be some sort of dark and action filled armageddon series. Well, think again? You do not need more than one minute of this show to understand that this is meant to be a comedy, amusing its viewers and also having fun with the basic principles of good and evil.

Good Omens on Amazon Prime

From the first minutes of Good Omens

In the first scenes of Good Omens, we meet the two angels Aziraphale and Crowley. One is meant to be the messenger of good while the other is meant to be the messenger of evil. But, as the evil (Crowley) tempt Adam and Eve into eating of the apple, they actually start to think about whether he actually did good by giving them the knowledge. After all, if it wasn’t bad, then why would Crowley tempt them to eat from the tree?

And as the two creatures keep on speaking, they both fear that they have done wrong. What if Crowley did well as he tempted them to eat from the tree, and what if Aziraphale did wrong in sending them away?

From the first scene in Good Omens on Amazon.com
From the first scene in Good Omens on Amazon.com

As you can understand, this is a real soup of a story, but it has some funny points to it. And as we get to know these two creatures, we understand that they actually appreciate their place on earth and they have little interested in seeing the world come to an end. So, what can they do about it?

That is what you will find out if you decide to watch Good Omens on Amazon Prime.

How to watch Good Omens online?

You need to have an Amazon Prime subscription or a Prime Video subscription to watch Good Omens. If you do not have any such subscription, find out more on how you can sign up for and watch Amazon Prime in the USA all across the world right here.

If you want to find some suggestions for what to watch on Amazon Prime in the United States this summer, take a look at the following article for even more information. Also, with the upcoming season of Suits coming around in less than a week, make sure to follow these instructions to find out how you can watch Suits season 9 on Netflix.

How did you like Good Omens?

Have you streamed Good Omens on Amazon yet? Did you enjoy the humor of the story, or do you find it to be primitive and bad? I would love to hear your thoughts!

In which countries can I find a local Amazon Store?

Are you going abroad and wonder if there is a local Amazon store in the country you are moving to? Or are you wondering if there is a local Amazon store in the country you are currently in?

Amazon is one of the biggest companies in the world when it comes to selling products and Jeff Bezos has done an awesome job making his company a giant in the business world. It is a fact that Amazon is the biggest place for selling and buying products in the United States, and many people would like to have access to a similar store in the country they are currently in. So, in which nations can you currently find an Amazon store that you can buy from and have the products sent directly home to you within days?

Countries with a local Amazon store
Countries with a local Amazon store

Countries with a local Amazon store

  • United States
  • Germany
  • United Kingdom
  • Italy
  • France
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Turkey
  • Spain
  • Argentina
  • Netherlands
  • Mexico
  • Japan
  • India
  • Australia
  • Japan
  • China

That is a total of 17 different countries, and I have a feeling even more nations will come in the near future. If they have been pioneering stores in so many countries, then there are lots of other countries waiting for them as well. It might be that Russia and Putin might have little interest in Amazon moving in, but what about other big nations in Europe such as Poland?

If your country isn’t on the list above, then you can still order products from Amazon and have them delivered to your home address. It might take longer time and cost you some more, but if you follow the instructions in this article on how to get Amazon products forwarded to your home address, you will find all the information you need to get started.

Can I bring my Prime subscription with me abroad?

If you have bought an Amazon Prime subscription in one of these nations and decide to go abroad, what will happen then? You can still use your Prime reading subscription, you can listen to Prime music, and you can watch a limited amount of Prime Video content (only that which is Amazon original content available abroad). If you want to watch other content available with your Amazon Prime subscription you will need to use a VPN that works with Amazon Prime in order to stream all the available material.

I hope all these questions have been answered and that you are ready to face tomorrow knowing the answers to these questions.

If you have further questions or maybe you want to inform me about a local Amazon store that has opened in a new country, please write a comment and let me know about it!

Can I stream to Chromecast with the Prime Video app on Android?

A few days ago, I bought myself a Prime Video subscription in Hungary in order to watch some original Prime videos. That was all fine and nice and I was preparing to cast the content to my Chromecast so that I could watch the TV series and movies on my TV. But, the Chromecast symbol never showed up…

If you have used a Chromecast before, you probably know how easy and convenient it is simply to cast the movie or the TV show or the YouTube content to your TV, and a few seconds later, you can watch the content on your TV instead of on your little Android screen. So, why isn’t the icon showing up in your Prime Video application? But, let me first answer and tell you how you might be able to stream the Prime Video content on your TV with Chromecast, even though it isn’t supposed to be possible.

It is way more complicated than it should be, but it can be done. First, you can simply mirror the screen of your Android device, but this is a really lousy solution considering the low resolution used on your Android phone or tablet. As a result, the content you will see on your TV will be impossible to enjoy.

But, a way better method is to open Prime Video in your Chrome browser on your computer. Now, there you can stream with a much better resolution, and if you have a Chromecast running, you will actually be able to cast the content from your browser to your TV.

You are not casting the content itself (like you would with other streaming services), but you are casting all the activities on your computer and what is seen in your Chrome browser. As a result, you will still see the actual video on your computer as well, but at the same time, you can see it on your TV in an acceptable resolution and quality.

So, the second option is by far the best if you are eager to stream Prime Video content to your TV with a Chromecast.

Prime Video is made for Amazon Fire TV’s

If you have an Amazon Fire TV (Stick), you will have a much easier job. Since Prime Video is made for this Amazon service, you can simply run the app and start whatever content you are interested in streaming. But, if you have signed up for Prime Video because there is no Amazon store in your country, you will most likely not have access to the Amazon Fire TV either, making this a lousy option.

The battle between Google and Amazon

What is causing this stupidity and hardship? Well, there is a battle between Google and Amazon, meaning that you cannot buy the Chromecast on Amazon.com. This is because Amazon would much rather have you use their very own Fire Stick. So, why would they add support for the Chromecast in their own streaming app if they do not support it in their very own store?

I find this to be childish behavior, and it makes Prime Video hard to use if you are a Chromecast fan. In fact, it is so hard to use that I believe many people will cancel their subscription (or never sign up in the first place due to this).

Would you like to stream Prime Video content using Chromecast as well? Have you found some better solution to get it done? Or will you cancel your subscription unless Amazon comes up with a Chromecast solution? I would love to hear your thoughts!
