Hmm, I have one-click turned off. Off to fix that up and let you know what happens.

I am using a free IPS shielder and it is coming from the USA. I can stream videos just fine using it on my laptop (I am a Prime member) but the app store defeats me!


Grrr, I did have a USA address as the one-click after all. I get the email to download the APK but when I open that all it does it take me to the Amazon app store and I have to download all over again. If I sideload the app to an android, it is only the app to the App store and not an app in itself.

Don't have an android, so no way to test the app store yet. BUT, if it's giving you issues, then switch to a VPN solution instead of a proxy solution for IP shielding. That should work unless they've blocked the IP addresses from the VPN solution.

I subscribed to StrongVPN for 3 months and was connected fine. But Amazon still picks up I am not in the USA.

Well, 8 days and I'll have an answer for you. I'm going to be in the US next week, and will pick up my Fire. Then, when I get back, I'll configure the network for VPN to the US and see what I can see.

I know you Canadians can take care of a lot of things with relatives or friends in the US. I send "gifts" all the time to a relative.

As for the IP checking, it is easy to get a free Proxy, but if you are going to use the bandwidth that streaming movies takes, it might require a paid proxy.

I would be delighted to hear of your positive news!

I have managed to use a free proxy to get the Amazon movies streamed, but for the App store - no dice!

Well, looks like my Fire will be waiting for me when I get to Washington. My CC just got charged.

It will still have to wait until I get back to test out the VPN solution. I'll be configuring a router to do VPN to a West Coast server. Details if it works.

Works. No VPN required. Use the App store download explained in the article. Whoop!

Finally, revenge for burning down our White House.

OK, just kidding.

Don't know the app, so can't comment. But yes, I'm located in Canada, at least most of the time.

I do not have a US library card. I use the BC Provincial library system to download my eBooks (as ePubs), and then strip DRM and convert to read on my Kindle.
