Hi all
Maybe someone here might be able to help me. Just signed up for prime and set it up on my tv. I see Walking Dead, Lucifer and a few others that I thought were UK only. Have they expanded the Irish selection or do I have the UK library now?

Haven't looked into Prime too much (hence a possibly dumb question) as I wasn't that impressed with the catalogue but after hearing you can change region might have to give it a go.
Yes prime for delivery encompasses prime video twitch prime etc

I think the best test is to see if you have Batman vs Superman as that's not available to irish prime but is on UK prime.

I went to the contact us page.

Hi,
just wondering, did you get access to full UK content without VPN?

Thanks,
Kris

Yes, AFAIK it's an EU thing, they can no longer geo restrict as the sell to both UK and Ireland, could be wrong.

Anyhow, you do not need a VPN to view full UK content

Yeah kicked in from the 1st April 2018 (no April fool ). Previously my UK prime video content was reduced as I was 'travelling'. Now I get the lot.

Tell them you're moving back to the UK because of Brexit and the UK will finally be a super power again.... I don't see them asking too many questions

I went on live chat yesterday evening and had my location changed to the UK. Not a single question was asked.

Me: Can you please update my Prime Video region to UK as it should be.

You're now connected to <Redacted> from Amazon.co.uk
Redacted: Hello, I'm Redacted.
I'll check that for you.
I've updated your Video territory settings to UK.

Me: Briliant, thanks!

Redacted: You are welcome.
Too easy!

I just signed up now and got the location changed to the UK via chat.

Is it Batman vs Superman "Dawn of justice" - 2016

That's showing on my prime video app now

I tried to listen to Amazon music it looks for CC ( I used Revolut Mastercard) and address but comes up with an error saying not in Ireland etc

Edit: added new virtual "visa" on my revolut account and got signed up ok on amazon music with PM address

Actually, I think I will be charged for Amazon music separate and it's not included in prime subscription from what I'm reading. I had better cancel that then .
It seems that its prime music is free (2 million songs) its the music unlimited is charged at £79 per year
