Using Amazon Prime membership in a different region with SimpleTelly
Presumably due to regional restrictions as well as many other legal matters, Amazon has split their Prime membership into different regions. The most well known Amazon Prime membership is Amazon.com, however Amazon UK, among other Amazon regions have their own Prime membership as well.
While the meat and potatoes (Free shipping, free kindle books, etc) of your Prime membership do not carry over between regions, we've found that if you connect to our SimpleTelly service and login to Amazon UK while subscribed to an Amazon Prime USA membership, the UK Amazon Prime videos play without any issue.
Just to reiterate, you will not receive any other Prime benefit. Even Prime music in the UK will not work with your Amazon Prime USA membership.
However Amazon Prime Video seems to work fine with a Prime membership originating from a different region.

Once you have confirmed that your region selector is the same as the one shown above, please visit Amazon.co.uk and login with your Amazon USA account credentials.
After logging in, you will see a notification on the top left asking you to "Try Prime".
Please disregard this notice and proceed to Amazon Prime Video.
Once there, feel free to browse the entire catalog of Amazon Prime Video UK!
Using a different device?
We can confirm that this also works on tablets and smartphones, so feel free to download the Amazon Prime Video app from the links below and binge away!
