If your Smart TV does not support the Amazon Prime Video application, or you have a non-Smart TV, know that you can use Google Chromecast , a “key” that connects to the HDMI port of the TV, to a source of power supply and thus allows the viewing of content from smartphones, tablets or computers wirelessly. It works via Wi-Fi network and supports a huge range of applications, including Prime Video for Android and iOS / iPadOS .
The Google home device, which can be purchased directly from the official store of the Mountain View giant, is available in two versions: a base that allows you to play content up to Full HD resolution and an Ultra , which also supports 4K content and includes a LAN port. Using it is really very simple.
Once connected to your TV, all you have to do is configure Chromecast by downloading the Google Home application for Android or iOS / iPadOS and following the wizard that is proposed to you. More info here .
After the configuration, all you have to do is start the Amazon Prime video application on your smartphone or tablet, start the content you want to transmit to the TV and, subsequently, press the transmission icon (the screen with the Wi-Fi waves ) and select your Chromecast from the list of available devices. Obviously, Chromecast and smartphone or tablet must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network for everything to work properly.
You can then control multimedia playback directly from your device. If you want to know more about the Google home device you can, consult my guide where I explain how Google Chromecast works .

In fact, the device, once connected, allows the user to view not only the contents of Amazon Prime Video, but also of many other streaming services , such as Netflix and Disney + , using a convenient remote control (it is therefore not bound to use support smartphone or tablet).
The Fire TV Stick is available in different versions: the Lite version (the basic one) which supports content up to Full HD resolution, the Standard version , which has the same features as the lite version but has a remote control with more functions and Dolby Atmos audio and, finally, the 4K Ultra HD version , which supports Ultra HD / 4K content and also provides an Ethernet port.
