Stream Amazon Instant Video
When you want to stream Amazon Instant Video, you have several options available to you. The first is, of course, streaming to PC. You can access the Amazon web store at any point to view your favorite shows and movies. Amazon Instant Video will work with a majority of devices so it is not going to result in any difficulties during use.
If you would like to watch away from the computer, though, you have to consider your options a bit more. Not all will work as well as you would hope. Make sure that you check Amazon Instant Video compatibility and usability with your device of choice.
Watching on your television is possible. You can stream from computer to TV if you have a cord that hooks both up. This is an easy solution for people without a Smart TV. People with a Smart TV, though, have another option that requires no wires. You can go directly to the app available with most Smart TVs. This will give you the Amazon Instant Video collection directly from your television.
Another way to stream to TV is to have a media streaming device that can connect to the television. Roku is a hugely popular option these days. After connecting the TV to Roku, you can set everything up and go directly into the Amazon Instant Video app. The app is ready to go once you start it up.
Apple has two ways that you can stream to TV. The first is to connect a TV to Apple TV. Apple TV is similar to Roku and offers many of the same applications, including Amazon Instant Video. It works similarly, too. Another way is to stream from iPad to TV using AirPlay or an HDMI cable. Both will connect your iPad to the television, allowing you to stream from the app that you downloaded on your iPad.
You can also connect your TV to Chromecast. Chromecast, sadly, does not have an app dedicated to Amazon Instant Video. What it does have, however, is a browser. If you switch from using Silverlight to using Flash, you can watch movies and shows on Amazon by using the browser. This may result in difficulties with streaming, though.
On Android, there are not many options. Google TV does have a dedicated app, but other devices cannot easily access the app since it is only available on the Amazon web store and since it is not easy to use.
