I don't have Firestick and don't plan to buy one. I use Prime video using TV app.

Thanks, I just switched. How long did it take to get a refund as I just paid yesterday for a new month. Cheers!

Thanks for the help
I believe the UK Prime has a bigger selection of content than what we get in Ireland. And also the Premier League. You need to call or chat to them and say you've moved to the UK and get them to change the territory

Paid for this just using Revolut but now the transaction is showing in the revolut app as reverted and declined. This happen anyone else?
Wasn't doing anything with the region. Just standard purchase.
Amazon still showing as me having Prime though

Mickeroo - thanks for the instructions. Do you know if number three is necessary? I don't currently have Revolut or any UK based credit card or banking.

I would leave them just to be safe.

I think number 3 might not be necessary for streaming content but if you ever want to buy or rent movies or tv shows from the view on demand catalog i think it's necessary.

I changed my country to UK to allow access to prime video.

I'm now trying to access Amazon Music, but it's asking me to verify my payment method. I use my revolut card but it won't accept it as my region is set to the UK and it's expecting a UK billing address on the card.

Can I keep my Prime Video region as UK AND set my Amazon Music region as Ireland in order to get my card verified on the setup page?

Thanks Mickeroo,


Glad I found this thread - I was all set to watch the City game tonight but copped it wasn't in ROI


Thanks Mickeroo, just on the last point :

How do I get onto Amazon , is there a number /email.

Will they not question why I want to switch to UK - is there a valid reason I can give them ?

Big thanks to Mickeroo. Instructions were perfect.

I did it over live chat through the Amazon app on my phone. I didn't even have to give an excuse just said please confirm my settings are set to the UK. They passed me onto a video account person and he did it in two minutes.

Logged into prime app on my phone and can see it has updated.
