If you are struggling while getting Prime Video on Xbox, then in this post, I am going to tell you how you can stream movies and TV shows on Prime Video on your Xbox.

Prime Video Vs. Amazon Instant Video

Prime Video and Amazon Instant Video are both two different services by Amazon.

Prime Video is part of the Prime subscription, which lets you stream TV shows and movies.

Amazon Instant Video lets you rent or buy movies, and however available both to Prime subscribers as well as non-subscribers. 

So do not get confused by these two different services of Amazon.

In this post, we are going to talk about Using Prime Video on Xbox.

Yes, prime video is available for the Xbox, but to limited regions, such as the United States, etc.

Prime Video is not available for Xbox in India.

So if you live in the USA, then you can easily download the Prime Video for Xbox from the Xbox’s Store.

Note: If you live in India, then go to your Xbox location settings and change the location to the United States, and then restart the Xbox. This will let you use the Prime Video in Xbox from India.
