Got prime video working on my Kindle Fire in the UK

You are so right there is no von support on the fire and rooting it does not help.

I tried hacking my router and using hide my ass.com but the fire did not like it even though my Mac works fine.

After many frustrating days and wasted cash I came across these guys;
http://www.unblock-us.com/

It works an absolute treat and is super simple to setup on the Kindle Fire.

I used the free trial and immediately bought a years subscription.

The only drawback is that you need to manually input your il address and dns settings

as their service works by a clever dns server trick.

This is definitely the way to go.

I will try setiing my whole network dns to point to their dns servers later so I can switch the kindle back to using dhcp but till then it works perfectly. :-)

Undoubtedly the best solution.
