How to stop your ISP from throttling Amazon Prime Video

Internet Service Providers have a habit of watching the data flowing between your devices and the internet. At times, they have even been known to deliberately slow down, or throttle, your connection when they see video streams.

You can combat throttling by using a secure Amazon Prime Video VPN. Hotspot Shield creates a fully encrypted connection between your devices and our VPN servers. As a result, your ISP can’t throttle your connection because it cannot tell whether you’re on a conference call or watching Iron Man 2.

How to Watch Amazon Prime abroad

When Amazon sees you’re connected to the internet in another country, it reassigns you to its video library for that country. So how can you watch Amazon Prime abroad and still get the content you paid for?

When you launch Hotspot Shield VPN, you will find a list of 80+ countries where we host our VPN servers. Select a server the USA VPN and Amazon will think you’re still Stateside. The same applies to other locations: Select our UK VPN server, for example, and Amazon will think you’re in the United Kingdom.
