Error 4601 on Amazon even when using a VPN
Are you using a VPN to watch Amazon Instant Videos and Amazon Prime videos from abroad? Are you still getting error 4601 as you try to watch?
Amazon.com seems to learn from their “big brother” Netflix when it comes to their steps against proxy and unblocker services. The basis of the problem is as follows.
- If you try to watch an Instant Video or an Amazon Prime video on Amazon.com from abroad, you will get an 4601 error message telling you that it can not be watched. Your geographical location is the problem!
- As a result lots of people use different VPN providers with servers in USA to get themselves an American IP address. As a consequence Amazon.com will believe that you are located in the USA, and you should be able to watch Amazon Videos anyway.
- Recently Amazon.com seems to block lots of IP addresses provided by VPN providers. It doesn’t matter if you actually have an American IP address. If the IP address you use is on the “block-list” of Amazon.com, you will still get the error 4601 message.
