I signed up to Amazon Prime Video a while back as a US customer as it wasn't available in New Zealand at the time.


Now it is available in New Zealand should I save myself the bother of faffing around with USD credit cards etc. & just renew using my NZ Visa?


Will I lose out on content I can currently access?

I use a NZ credit card for US Prime video, and yes the NZ content is quite limited.

I have Amazon Prime Video running on my original Roku in the lounge. I grabbed another Roku Express for downstairs and it won't register Amazon Prime Video  - complains that the payment method configured against my Amazon account doesn't have a US billing address... It only allows credit cards not PayPal.

Thank you - I'll stick with US content, if I can.
