Amazon Prime

Question

Why does my Amazon Prime app (latest version) not connect on my LG smart TV? I'm hard wire connected to the internet and all other apps work perfectly, Netflix provides UHD quality, yet Amazon Prime gives a connectivity error message. My TV OS is up to date.

Has Amazon Prime ever worked for you?

What version is installed?

Have you moved geographical locations (this one crops up more than you would think)?

Yes, it has worked previously, up to a point. I have not moved geographically. I don't know which version, but it's the one that was updated a few weeks ago. It actually worked right after the update, but after navigated away from the app and pressed the Prime Video button again, I received the same error message.

I managed to get the app working eventually. I now have an issue with DNS via Unlocator. When switching to Amazon Prime, I receive the "Network problems.." message. I have to go to DNS setting, change to auto DNS, switch off and on, then go back to settings, change to Unlocator DNS and then it will connect! Why is this?

Why it happens I could not say, but many people have similar DNS issues with licence agreements. 

Really irritating!

I don’t have an answer but l do have a related problem.

I directed my problem to Amazon Prime a couple of weeks ago but still don’t have an answer.  It seems to occur only with HDR 4K eg Dolby Vision, UHD, The program starts to play ok but at some point  the video freezes but the audio continues. If you restart the program starts again and continues for a while and then the problem starts again. Eventually the app crashes.

I too am on a LAN connection with 80 + Mbps speed  VERY ANNOYING.

Maybe some good news for Amazon Prime video problems.

Try rebooting both your Modem and TV. I turned them both off for 30 secs and when I restarted lo and behold all my problems with streaming were gone.

 

 I should clarify  my TV is a Smart TV with Prime Video as an onboard app  if you stream using and external device (eg Apple TV)  you might try rebooting that device also.

That's because this is a user-to-user forum, LG has no official involvement on the forum.

    • Question: Super slow internet (WiFi) when streaming

      Hi, I recently bought an LG UK6500PLA TV (my first LG), but I have a difficult time streaming content (Wifi connected), e.g. Netflix series is streaming in low resolution.  The router is only 10 feet away from TV (but ethernet is not an option) and uses a 5GH frequency range. I have tried making a speed test at fast.com, for both the TV (through the Webbrowser) and for my laptop and iPhone. The speed test for TV showed 2.5 Mbps and my laptop and iPhone showed 110 Mbps. Can there really be such a big difference? I am starting to wonder if this might be a warranty issue? Do any of you guys have experience with bad Wifi reception on your LG TV or have any suggestions on how to fix it?    Br, Nick

    • Question: gigabit ethernet on smart TV

      Hello, Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX.  Kind regards,
