Verify in your profile that everything is in order by connecting to Amazon's official website and logging in.

  • Uninstallation: if your Amazon Prime Video app is not updatable, uninstall it and install it again on your Smart TV to completely restore the previous information.
  • Support: in case these precautions are not sufficient, we recommend that you contact Amazon support toll-free at 800.798.277, after checking Downdetector to see if other users have reported any outage anomalies.
