Just before we even start with my question


1) I have never used any DNS/vpn trickery or whatever to hide my location


2) I am 99% sure i signed up at using my Amazon Details


3) All my payment methods are NZ based


4) my address is NZ based




So i logged into primevideo


I was wondering why it was showing me all these hows that i can't watch, so i logged in via my PC and it asked me if I wanted to change my default country from the US to NZ, which i thought was odd as everything i have is set to NZ so I hit the set NZ as my default about 30 seconds later the browser gave an error saying prime was doing too many redirects.


After trying and failing to find the location setting, (I tried changing my deceased credit card which was set as the default to my new one, which was already set up, but it would let me change default credit card), i managed to click on the renew thingie (as i wanted to see the costs) and it came up and told it would charge me $99usd for 12 months?, which is the charge for Amazon prime not prime video. which is as below



Welcome to Prime Video
Enjoy exclusive Amazon Originals as well as popular movies and TV shows. Introductory price of $5.99 $2.99 USD/month for your first six months. Cancel anytime.



So my question is how do i get prime Video, the one that available here

Also how do I view prime video content on my fire stick currently I can't find a way to. On my phone which has the prime video app I can view tv series that I can't find on my fire stick.
