Just like Netflix, Amazon has Prime Instant Video apps available for all manner of connected TVs, Blu-ray players, cinema systems and games consoles, meaning whatever home setup you have, you should be covered.
The platform is compatible with more than 400 devices in total, a full list of which can be found in Amazon's support pages
. If you've bought a connected LG, Samsung, Sony or Panasonic TV in the last few years, however, chances are you're covered.
The app can be downloaded - for free - from your TV's respective app store. Once you've signed in with your membership details that's it, you're set and ready to enjoy some streaming action.
Getting into the Amazon Prime way of life is just as straightforward for console owners, with dedicated apps available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Even those with a Wii or Wii U still sat under their TV can get in on the action.
How to watch Amazon Prime without a Smart TV
If your home entertainment system is a little out of date and in need of some serious sprucing, fret not, Amazon has got your back with a couple of affordable own-brand, internet-connected hardware additions to give you instant Prime access.
Amazon Fire TV
is a £79 set-top box turned micro-console which lets you both live stream and enjoy a bit of big screen app-based gaming. By contrast, the £35 Fire TV Stick
is a stripped-back answer to Google Chromecast
Pleasingly, both come bundled with a free 30-day Prime trial and if you plump for either, you're not going to be locked down to just Amazon's content services. The connected tools let you download and enjoy services such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer, vevo and, if you're really desperate for something to watch, Demand 5.
