How do I set Parental Controls or block access?

There are several ways you can set Parental Controls:

    1. Lock TV-MA content under Settings > Parental Controls > TV Rating Locks. Once locked, a Parental Control PIN will be required to access the Prime Video app.
      • Note: Choosing this option will also lock all other TV-MA Internet apps on X1 and will require you to enter a PIN before accessing those apps moving forward.
  1. You can block access to the Prime Video app using an Application Lock. Learn more about Application Locks for X1.

Note: Once you launch the app, Parental Control settings will not guard against new content searches or playback within Amazon Prime on X1 and Flex. Prime Video features its own set of parental controls and purchase restrictions.

Are there any accessibility features?

Since Prime Video on X1 and Flex is a third-party application, most of your accessibility user preferences on X1 and Flex will not be observed once you launch the app. However, you can enable Amazon’s own set of accessibility features - such as captions, descriptive video service, subtitles and a talking guide - within the app.

What language options are available?

Currently, the Prime Video app on X1 and Flex is available in English only. However, there are select titles available in the Prime Video library with non-English language tracks.

How do I return to the main menu?

Press the Exit, Guide or xfinity buttons on your remote to exit Prime Video on X1 or Flex. You can also say a voice command like "Watch CNN" into your Voice Remote to exit the app.

Why aren’t my Prime Video purchases appearing in my X1 or Flex purchases?

Titles purchased or rented in Prime Video only appear in the Prime Video app on X1 or Flex; they will not appear in your purchases.

There are some Amazon Prime titles that don’t show up when browsing the X1 or Flex On-Screen Guide. Why?

Not all Amazon Prime content can be browsed on your X1 or Flex On-Screen Guide at this time, and available titles may not yet have poster art. However, you’ll see the full Prime Video library once you launch the app.

If I subscribe to a Prime Video Channel, will I also receive access to it on X1 or Flex?

You’ll only be able to see this channel’s programming through the Amazon Prime Video app on X1 or Flex. If you subscribe to a subscription video on demand channel outside of the app, you won’t be able to watch it within the app even though it may offer the same or similar programming.

Can I watch shows in 4K or HDR?

Yes, customers with compatible 4K devices can watch in 4K and/or HDR in the Prime Video app as long as the device is connected to a 4K display and the X1 TV Box settings are correct.

How do I set up a purchase PIN in the Amazon Prime Video app on X1 or Flex?

You can set up a purchase PIN with Amazon.com/mytv Prime Video on Amazon.com. If you created a purchase PIN on your X1 or Flex streaming device, that PIN will not extend to the Amazon Prime Video app. You need to set up a separate PIN with Amazon.
