How can I download videos from vidia TV

Smart home How do I get Amazon Prime on the TV?


The video streaming service Amazon Prime Video is Netflix's biggest competitor worldwide and, like its counterpart, offers TV series and films that you can watch immediately on an Internet-connected device. This works with your TV too, of course, and it doesn't matter whether you have a Smart TV or not.

Use Prime with a Smart TV

Actually, all smart TVs support Amazon Prime. If you want to learn more about smart TVs, you can read through our article on the subject.

So to stream series and films with Amazon, all you have to do is download the Amazon Prime Video app on your smart TV. This process differs from manufacturer to manufacturer, but basically you search for Prime Video in their respective store and install it. All you have to do is open the app and enter your login data. Then nothing will stop you from streaming your favorite series.

Use streaming player

If your TV isn't “smart”, or if you have a smart TV that for some reason doesn't support Amazon Prime, you can still use Prime by connecting a streaming player to your TV. There are a large number of streaming players out there, and like most smart TVs, virtually all of them have the ability to play Amazon Prime Video.

Amazon itself offers a streaming player that includes Prime Video - the Amazon Fire TV. You can also look for an Apple TV or other players from Nvidia, TICTID and others.

In addition, streaming services are also integrated in some home theater components. So, if you're looking to buy a DVD or Blu-ray player, be aware that many of these players also allow streaming videos like Amazon Prime.

Connect smartphone or tablet


Of course, the Amazon Prime Video app is available in the app and play store and you can download it to your smartphone or tablet. With the right cable, you can then connect your tablet or even your smartphone directly to a television. For example, for an iPad or iPhone, you'll need a Lightning-to-Digital AV adapter, which you can get at any Apple Store or online. You can easily connect Android smartphones with a Mirco-HDMI cable.

There is also the option of connecting wirelessly. For example, if you have a smart TV and a smartphone from Samsung, you can use the "Smart View" feature to display your phone's screen on the television. Apple users can wirelessly connect their iPhone to an Apple TV.

Cast with Fire TV Stick or Chromecast

Google Chromecast is a stick that allows you to wirelessly cast content from your phone, tablet or computer to your TV. Like most regular streaming players, the Chromecast plugs into an HDMI port on your TV. However, then videos (and other content) will be played wirelessly from your device. While there is no way to access the Amazon Prime Video app via Chromecast, you can play content from Amazon Prime Video on your smartphone or computer and then cast it to your TV using Chromecast.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick even works without any additional tools such as a smartphone or tablet and comes with its own user interface. It also has its own app store, which offers a large selection of apps - including, of course, its own streaming service. As an Amazon Prime customer, you have even more options such as streaming photos or voice control via Alexa.
