I have an Amazon Kindle fire, I have an Amazon Prime subscription, and I am living outside the US.

Every single time I want to enjoy Amazon streaming video service reserved for the Prime membership, the Amazon Geo-IP check stops me from doing so ("this service is unavailable in your region" ).

Any idea to bypass this Geo-IP check?

Apart from using Proxy, may be contacting customer support will help. I had downloaded Amazon Kindle in my phone and registered using US Address while I live in Nepal. After downloading 5 or so free books, amazon told me to contact customer support as my IP was not from US. They said if I was living outside US the support person might be able to help. –  roxan Dec 21 '11 at 6:09
@roxan, from what I know, the Amazon support is more likely to ask you to prove that you are a US resident rather than to really help you solve the problem. –  Graviton Dec 21 '11 at 6:55
Yes, they wanted me to prove them that I was a US resident living outside due to some business. –  roxan Dec 21 '11 at 7:17
