Cannot Access Amazon Prime Video

After eleven months of contacting Expat VPN’s help desk regarding my inability to access Amazon Prime Video I’m ready to throw in the towel. Their support personnel generally respond within hours to any inquiries, but sadly, Expat VPN is unable to resolve the issue. Additionally, many responses from support personnel require clarification due to the incomplete instructions conveyed by Expat VPN’s support personnel. In general...frustrating, irritating, and not providing the service they advertise.

    Hello Paula, we are very sorry you had problems accessing Amazon Prime. We assume this is Amazon Prime UK. The UK Prime service has been subject to some blocking by Amazon. In 2018, we introduced an enhanced VPN connection called Stealth Mode. This is currently working for Amazon Prime UK. For the US we use a "domestic" IP address. This guarantees uninterrupted access regards

    Why doesn't UK come up straight away.

    I have to keep changing it from Australia to UK.This has been pointed out by other people for ages.Yet it hasn’t been corrected. It didn’t work for me in China. I’m considering changing to the one I did use in China.

    Very disappointed!!

    At the beginning I was satisfied. For some time now (during the last 10 days) the connection to the Danish server has practically never worked! But my subscription is still running... Either nothing happens (the flag remains "pale") or the message appears that the VPN server did not respond.

        My Expat Network has one clear focus for its VPN service: streaming media. While other VPNs, like NordVPN and ExpressVPN, will do this and provide online security, My Expat Network markets their service to people who wish to access TV shows and other streaming media from the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, and Canada. Without an IP address that is local to these countries, certain content can be blocked. Their servers are configured to use the OpenVPN protocol and optimized for video streaming, and there are no data transfer limits in place. The network consists of over 120 servers spread throughout the countries they serve.

        The software My Expat Network provides handles the configuration of your VPN connection for you. Encryption and protocol selection is done for you by the configuration file that is included with the software. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux desktops and also for iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile devices. If you want to connect your entire home network you have the option of configuring a wireless router that has the DD-WRT open source firmware installed on it or you can purchase a pre-configured router from their website. They offer ASUS and Netgear routers and optional accessories that you can buy along with your subscription.

        One thing that makes My Expat Network unique is their software installation service. If you are not comfortable with such things you can open a support request on their helpdesk and one of their experts will install the software for you. This is done by using Team Viewer remote support software. This service is available between the hours of 9 AM and 12 AM Greenwich Mean Time.

        It is important to note that they do not officially support Linux, but they do provide instructions on how to configure the OpenVPN client on Linux using the configuration file from the Mac OS X software. You simply need to download the Mac version of their software and extract the configuration file from the package and, using the command line, configure the client to use that file.

        My Expat Network accepts credit cards and PayPal, and it is important to note that all payments are processed through PayPal. Any data retention policies PayPal has in place also apply to your purchase. The packages they offer are based on which country in which you want to have an IP address. So if you want to watch British TV, you would purchase the UK package. For American TV you would buy the US package. Their packages are separated into device categories with a PC/MAC/Router or Mobile/Tablet packages. There is also an All in One package which includes access to all of the countries served on any supported device. You also have to choose the length of your subscription as well. They offer monthly, 3 months, 6 months, and yearly subscriptions. Pricing gets a little complicated with all of the choices available so you will have to visit their website to get accurate pricing.
