How To Update Amazon Prime On Your Smart Tv

You’ve probably heard about Amazon Prime, but you might not be sure what it is or how you can use it. Amazon Prime is a subscription service offered by e-commerce giant Amazon that provides benefits to users on a monthly or annual basis. It costs $119 per year, which is less than the monthly cost of Netflix or Hulu. The primary benefit of being a member is free two-day shipping on all eligible purchases from Amazon including things like books and compact fluorescent light bulbs. There are also plenty of other perks, such as access to Prime Video, Twitch Prime, and Prime Music; there are also special deals available only to members. If you have a smart TV with built-in apps (also called integrated digital services), you can follow these steps for updating your Amazon Prime app on your TV.

How To Update Amazon Prime On Your Smart Tv

  1. From the Home screen, scroll down and select Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the Services section and select Amazon.
  3. Select Get Amazon Prime Video.
  4. Select Update now to update your Amazon Prime Video app on your smart TV.
  5. You’ll be prompted to sign in or sign up for an Amazon account if you don’t already have one; follow the prompts to complete signing up or signing in, and then select Continue to proceed with the update process.
  6. Select Update now when you’re prompted again, and then wait while your smart TV updates the app with new features, content, and bug fixes; this may take a few minutes depending on how long it has been since you last updated your app version on your smart TV, but it shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes at most.
  7. Once the update is complete, select Back to go back to the previous screen and select Done to exit the Settings menu.

How To Install Amazon Prime On Your Smart Tv

  • Select Apps from the Home screen.
  • Scroll down to and select Amazon Prime Video.
  • Select Download to install the Amazon Prime app on your smart TV.
  • You’ll be prompted to sign in or sign up for an Amazon account if you don’t already have one; follow the prompts to complete signing up or signing in, and then select Continue to proceed with the download process.
  • Once the download is complete, select Open to launch the installed app on your smart TV, and then follow the on-screen instructions provided by Amazon Prime Video; this will include creating a username and password for your Amazon account if you don’t already have one, and choosing whether you want to use an existing payment method (such as a credit card) that has been linked with your Amazon account or a new payment method that hasn’t been linked with your account yet; once this is done, you’ll be able to start streaming videos from Amazon’s library of content including movies like “The Big Sick”, “The Salesman”, “Manchester by the Sea” and “Moonlight”.

How To Use Amazon Prime Video

  1. Select a movie or TV show episode from the content library available on your smart TV (this is where you’ll find all of the content that’s included with a paid membership); once you’ve selected a title, it will start playing automatically on your smart TV screen.
  2. If there are any additional episodes available within that season of a show that you can stream, they will be listed under Recent Episodes; select one of these episodes to watch it immediately without having to select it again from your home screen like you would have had to do if there were only a single episode available instead of multiple ones within a given season of a show.
  3. Select Settings from the Home screen or from within an episode that’s currently playing on your smart TV screen; this will bring up settings for subtitles, captions (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played), parental controls (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played) and closed captioning language (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played).
  4. Select More Settings from the Settings menu; this will bring up the second page of settings that you can customize to your own liking, including your account settings, parental controls (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played), closed caption language (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played) and more.
  5. To view the options available within the More Settings menu, select More Settings from the Settings menu; this will bring up the second page of settings that you can customize to your own liking, including parental controls (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played), closed caption language (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played), subtitles and captions (if applicable for whichever video title is currently being played) and more.
  6. Select Cast Content from the Home screen or while you’re watching a movie or TV show episode on your smart TV screen; this will allow you to send whatever’s currently playing on your smart TV screen to another device that’s connected to your home network via Wi-Fi like an Amazon Fire TV or an Android TV box like an Nvidia Shield.
  7. While you’re watching a movie or TV show episode on your smart TV screen, select Subtitles & Captions from the More Settings menu; this will allow you to switch between subtitles and captions if one of these features isn’t already active for whatever it is that you’re watching on your smart TV screen.

How To Use Amazon Music On Your Smart Tv

  • From the Home screen of your smart TV, select Music.
  • Select Search to bring up the search menu.
  • Type in or say the name of your favorite artist, song, or genre and press OK on your remote control; if you typed in an exact name, select that entry from the list and press OK on your remote control to play it.
  • To add a track to a playlist, select Playlists from the Navigation menu.
  • Select New Playlist and give it a name; then press OK on your remote control to create it.
  • To add music tracks to this playlist, select Add Music from this Playlist from the Navigation menu; then select tracks you want to add, and they will be added at the bottom of your playlist in alphabetical order by default unless you decide otherwise.
  • Press BACK on your remote control at any time during playback or when browsing through music tracks in a song list to access playback controls like Pause/Play, Fast Forward/Rewind, Next/Previous Track (depending on how many tracks are currently being played).
  • If you’re listening to music with lyrics, make sure that closed captioning is turned off so that they don’t get inadvertently turned on while watching something else like a movie or TV show episode on your smart TV screen; do this by selecting Settings from the Home screen and then selecting More Settings followed by Closed Captioning Language followed by Off from within one of these menus.
  • While you’re listening to music, select the track you want to listen to in the song list from the Navigation menu; this will bring up playback controls at the bottom of your screen like Pause/Play, Fast Forward/Rewind, Next/Previous Track (depending on how many tracks are currently being played).
  • While you’re listening to music, if you want to add a track or an album to your playlists, select Add Music from this Playlist from the Navigation menu; then select tracks you want to add, and they will be added at the bottom
