Do you have an Amazon Prime subscription in Germany, but you are unable to enjoy it? How can you get access to Amazon Prime Germany and all its video content if you travel outside Germany?
Due to the new EU regulations, you can easily watch and enjoy the content of your Amazon Prime content in Germany as you travel within the EU. But, if you leave the EU, you will start getting messages like this one instead, telling you that the content is not available.
You get this message because you are located outside the EU, and you do not have the rights to watch the content included with your Amazon Prime subscription in Germany outside the European Union. But, what can you do if you are really eager to enjoy the benefits of your Amazon Prime subscription still? Is there a way to watch Amazon Prime Germany content, also outside the EU and outside Germany?
Which VPN to use to unblock German Amazon Prime?
Maybe you thought a VPN was the solution to unblock German Amazon Prime abroad? That is reasonable, because we also thought so. But, if you use a VPN as you try to visit Amazon Prime Germany from abroad, or if you just surf the internet in Germany with a VPN, you will get a message like this.
Amazon seems to be really good at recognizing people using VPN providers, and they seem to have a giant database of IP adresses used by the biggest and most popular VPN providers. I have tested lots of VPN providers with servers in Germany and within the EU (as finding a VPN provider with an IP address within the EU that works with Amazon.de would be enough), but I have had a hard time finding one.
In other words, I cannot help you unblock Amazon Prime in Germany like this at the moment. If you want to get access to Amazon Prime in the USA using a VPN, that is much easier. Click the link for more information on how that can be done.
How can I access Amazon Prime Germany abroad then?
I have done some testing, and I found a solution that will help you solve the problem. It is a very easy solution, but it might still require some work and some failing from your side.
The solution is called IPSX, and it is an IP Address exchange working with proxy servers all across the world. This is a small service (yet), meaning that they have loads of IP addresses in their catalog that isn’t discovered and recognized by the big streaming services yet, and thus you can unblock Amazon Prime in Germany with lots of the IP addresses they provide in Germany.
Some of their IP addresses will for sure be blocked as well, but lots of them work. And, it is really cheap, as you can rent an IP address in Germany for as little as 0,2 USD for a couple of hours or for a day, so you can easily try a couple of IP addresses without much risk or without spending a lot of money.
I was successful in bypassing the geo-blocks on Amazon Prime Germany at my first try (with a 0,2 USD proxy server in Germany), so go ahead and give it a try. You can later use the same system to unblock lots of other streaming sites all across the world.
As you can see above, it is possible to stream Amazon Prime in Germany from abroad without any error message.
Do you know of a VPN that works with Amazon Prime in Germany?
I would love to hear about VPN providers that work with Amazon Prime videos in Germany. I haven’t managed to find one during my testing, but if you know of any, please let me know. They will all cost more than an IPSX proxy, but some people do feel more comfortable using a VPN instead of a platform they haven’t heard about before.
But, while waiting for a VPN solution, let me tell you that the IPSX platform is really easy to use, it is cheap, and just as quick (maybe quicker) than a VPN. And you do not even have to install any single VPN application, as the only requirement is to copy the address to a proxy setup file into your Windows settings (or on the proxy settings on your mobile device), and you will be good to go and ready to stream.
But still, please tell me if you know about VPN providers that work with Amazon Germany, and I will update this article later with such information as well!
