The Xiaomi Mi Box has become one of the most popular Android TV boxes mostly because of its very interesting features and capabilities. On the same note, the Amazon Prime Video is a great way to keep oneself entertained with the great line up of videos that are available on it. Now the challenge with Amazon Prime Video unlike other video streaming services is the fact that you can’t access it directly with your Xiaomi Mi box. So, what happens if you want to access Amazon Prime Video on your Mi box, Is it possible? The answer is Yes, although it requires some setup, but after setting up, you would always be able to access Amazon Prime video on your Mi box. So, here are your options.
Use A Third-Party App Store (That Supports Amazon Prime Video)
Just in case you’re wondering why you can’t just use your Google Play Store, well, it’s because these third-party app stores allow you to install some apps you otherwise won’t be able to install from your Google Play Store and Amazon Video Prime isn’t available on the Mi box Google Play Store. There are a couple of these third-party app stores that you can install, but ensure that you check them thoroughly before selecting. To be able to install this third-party app which would be in an Apk format, you need a file manager app. You can download one from your Google Play Store. Open the File Manager and create a folder for easy reference. When you download the Third-Party App, send it to the folder which you created. Go to your settings and click on “Install from unknown sources”. Next, go to the named folder and install the Apk. With the Apk, you can now install “Amazon Prime Video”. Now you can access your Amazon Prime Video on your Mi box.
