Switch your amazon account to the UK to download UK apps

You can switch your Amazon account to a different country in order to install local apps. We currently support many streaming services in the UK such as BBC iPlayer, itv, and Channel 4.

You can always switch back to your original country. Any app you download once while set to the UK will be available to download later even if you switch back.

Before starting, please make sure you are logged in to your Amazon account on your computer.

Step 1:

Go to  Manage Your Content and Devices.

Step 2:

Click on the "Preferences" tab.

Step 3:

Go to the "Country Settings" section, click "Country Settings", and select "Change" next to your current country.

Step 4:

You can pick any address you want as long is it's in the new country and the address is real. You can use a random address generator. Select Update.

Step 5:

There is currently a bug that Amazon is aware of with Fire TV devices where you cannot download these apps on the device directly, you'll have to "Deliver" them from the Amazon web store.

After changing your country, you'll need to find the FireTV App you want by searching for it in the Amazon search bar on the web.

Step 6:

Once you've found the app, choose the Fire TV device to download to and select "Deliver". If there is no option to "Deliver" to your Fire TV Stick, make sure to login to your Amazon account on the Fire TV device.

Step 7:

The app should now be downloaded and sent to your FireTV account. On your FireTV Stick, make sure the StreamLocator App is turned on. Any app you've downloaded onto the FireTV deivce will work as long as it's supported by StreamLocator.
