Really? Is this the case?

I've logged in etc but I'm getting an Error 5505 when I try to play content. As someone else said earlier it seems to be a location based issue.

I did buy my Firestick and Fire TV from the UK before the services were available here so I'm thinking your suggestion might be right.

Further to this, just been on to Amazon and they tell me that we can only use Prime on the International version of the Firestick here. I'm prob preaching to the converted on here - you lot probably already know this.

Anyway, here's the International version -

If not a Prime Video member, you must reside in Ireland.
Same for me, tried an existing amazon account and tried creating a new account...

Signed up and as per usual a fight with my Firestick with error 5501 which Amazon didn't really help me with.

Installed prime video on the phone and can then cast it to the Firestick anyway do much of a muchness really.

Will need to review if I cancel now will I still receive 11 months and 29 days or does it cancel immediately or set a reminder for next November.

I am seeing no amazon prime banner on myeir. Nowhere on the app does it mention prime.
Anybody else?

I signed up for this as well and when I tried to watch season 5 of Vikings only 2 of the 10 episodes are available? Episode 5 and episode 7. Which is stupid. When I try to watch any of the others it says "video unavailable" wtf like?

Watching on TV as we speak. I did set it up online though the MyEir. Part of the process takes you through to the Amazon site to log in. Took a few attempts but no issue since.

I can see all of them and checked a few. That sounds like an access error not any blocking of them.

They said that it wasn't included that way and that I would be charged 5.99 a month if watching that way..
