Amazon uses the country of issue on your credit card to verify you are in the us. The only way around this is by having a us issued credit card, for that I purchased a prepaid american express card in Target o my last trip to the us, and it has allowed me to download the apps, even though I'm not connecting through a vpn at hte moment. You need unblock-us or a vpn enabled router for tue streaming video, but for the apps you just need the credit card. Hope this helps.
