Amazon Prime is a popular subscription service that provides members with free shipping on a variety of Amazon products. However, the subscription (currently $119 per year for most people, with a student plan available) includes much more than just shipping: you get a slew of discounts, streaming music, streaming video, and a lot more.
If you’re an Amazon Prime member seeking ways to watch your free streaming video on a TV, you’re in luck: there are plenty of possibilities.

First and foremost, Amazon Prime is supported by the majority of smart TVs (TVs with the capacity to show streaming services built-in). If you’re looking for a smart TV, check sure it has an Amazon Prime channel built in – almost all of them do, so this is a straightforward step. Amazon sells Samsung, LG, TCL, Toshiba, Sony, and other brands.
If your TV isn’t “smart” – or if your smart TV doesn’t have Amazon Prime for whatever reason – you can add the service by connecting a streaming player to your TV. There are a lot of streaming players out there, and almost all of them, just like smart TVs, can play Amazon Prime Video.
The Amazon Fire TV is Amazon’s own line of streaming players, all of which include Prime Video. You can also check for Roku players, Apple TVs, and other similar devices.
Moreover, some home entertainment components come with built-in streaming video. If you’re looking for a new DVD or Blu-ray player, keep in mind that many of them also support streaming video services like Amazon Prime.
Using a Chromecast, you may watch movies and TV shows.
Chromecast is a one-of-a-kind device that allows you to “cast” information from your phone or tablet to your TV wirelessly. The Chromecast connects to your TV via an HDMI connector, just like most other streaming devices. However, it then wirelessly plays video (and other stuff) from your mobile device. That means you can use a Chromecast to “cast” Amazon Prime Video from your phone to your TV.
Connect your phone or tablet to your television.
You can connect your tablet (such as an iPad) or even your phone to a TV using the appropriate cable. For an iPad, you’ll need a Lightning to Digital AV converter, which can be purchased at any Apple shop or online.
