    Streaming?

    Showing my ignorance again! I have Amazon prime.....understand somehow I can stream(?) videos/movies..saw an ad for Bosch series being offered on Amazon. I've read all the books, love the character, and I like the actor who is apparently the character on this series........how do I access this part of my prime membership? Can I get on my tv or do I have to watch on my iPad......I can't seem to find the answer/instructions on Amazon site.....but I'm probable not looking in the right place....clue please! Thanks

    I watch movies on amazon prime. when logged in, place cursor on My Account and the large menu that shows up has Prime video on the bottom right. scroll down there and click on that. it should list movies and t.v. series , etc.
    I watch mine usually on my large computer monitor. my son has dish t.v. and I can watch Amazon on that if i like.
    hope this helps. I'm still a novice to all this.

    Go to Walmart and buy the Roku. No fee for it after you buy it. We have Roku on all our tvs. You can stream Amazon Prime, Netflix and thousands of free channels too. All you need is wi fi in the house. https://www.roku.com/index

    Dont know your tv or your set up so.....go to the place where subscription tv is like Netflix, hulu, and Amazon prime should be in the list. (you can only watch the ones that you pay a subscription for). Log, in and watch.
    To watch on your computer, log in to amazon, search "TV shows on amazon prime free" chose a show and it will staart.

    We have TiVo and watched first episode last night. Very good show. Go to Best Buy, Walmart or wherever and talk to these guys. It's worth it to watch on your big screen.

    Can you get to your apps on the tv? You should be able to download the Amazon app from there. And yes, you will be able to stream the Bosch series for free from there. You just need to log in to your Amazon Prime account.

    If you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you do not need to buy another device to watch any Amazon program on your computer.

    In your search engine type "amazon prime bosch" The results list each season. Click on the one you want and the screen goes to the Bosch home page. If you have Amazon Prime, there is a green box on the right side that says "Episode 1 watch now." Just click on it and the show starts.

    If you go down the page, you will see a synopsis for each episode and can click on it to run it.

    The Bosch series is terrific. Titus Welliver is everything you imagined Bosch to be when you read the books.

    Streaming is like using the rotary cutter instead of cutting with scissors. We enjoy our Roku very much. And it saves time. No commercials to sit through.

    To do streaming, your internet must connect to your tv. My tv is too old to hook my computer into it,I love amazon Prime moves, tv shows ,etc.I did some research on the internet to see how i could send the streaming to my tv from the internet . I had a Wii U already hooked up to my tv (for my grandkids) ,so I re -route it through the gamepad that is part of the Wii U. but soon my Wii U will be obsolete,I Google" d -how to connect internet with and old tv and it told me how and what I needed. hope this helps.
