    Today I received a new Amazon-Prime-Movies APP for my Sony NSZ-GS8, but I don't see what's new...

    Does anyone noticed something new?

    Its nice to see we're still getting updates. I can't tell the difference either looking at the new version at a glance. Hopefully it's not a memory hog anymore.

    It is always good to see updates to the Google TV apps, especially if the update is an improvement. I will update later today and see what I think.

    I've been seeing a lot of updates coming through for GTV specific apps lately. This one, Avia, Mizuu, Plex, Viki and Maxthon browser have all been updated in the past week.

    I haven't noticed any real differences in the apps but it's good to see the updates none-the-less.

    I just checked to see if Amazon instant still continues to run even after you exit the app. Sadly, it still does

    I installed the update on my Vizio Co-Star, Amazon Instant Video no longer plays, nothing but a black screen after loading. The same box didn't work for Vudu for months, Vizio finally fixed it this month. If others are having the issue with their Co-Stars, I will let them communicate the issue to Vizio, otherwise, it just isn't worth the time to report it and communicate for months trying to get it fixed which is what I did with Vudu. I will wait for reports that the app is working properly on the GS7/GS8 before installing it on the GS7 although the Vudu app worked on the GS7 when it wouldn't work on the Co-Star so I believe there is something wrong with the way some Co-Stars handle DRM.

    Hi
    I'm in UK and on my GS7 i cannot find the 'Amazon Prime' app in the Google Play Store. I've searched for 'Amazon' and 'Amazon Prime' but to no avail. Any idea why?
    Cheers

    Here's the APK https://www.dropbox.com/s/1mtorbfnzfjb84w/AmazonVideo_GTV-10243810.apk (probably needs an update, it's been in my dropbox for a while)

    If it's blocked you could try running a VPN app. I tried the Tunnelbear VPN for a couple months to watch your TV Catchup and Netflix but it never worked too good for me. Maybe you could find a better VPN service

    Thanks, managed to install the Amazon app on my GS7 but its for the US Amazon Prime account whereas i have a UK Prime account. Am i right in thinking there's no UK APK file for Amazon Video app?

    Did your GS7 come with Amazon.uk Instant Video app installed? Can you access your Amazon.uk Prime Instant Video with the Chrome browser?

    No, the app wasn't installed when i bought my GS7 a couple of years ago. Get the message "video cannot be viewed on this device" if i try to view via amazon.co.uk

    Sounds like a good question for Amazon.uk, but it's looking a lot like the answer is going to be "unsupported".
