Speaking about how he got the service running, koshyg15 says, "I downloaded the amazon underground app, from there I downloaded the prime video app. The prime video app got an update today and now I can launch the app and play videos. I can actually play videos."
The app has since stopped working. It throws an error and the catalog which was accessible earlier in not so anymore.
According to a Medianama report, the catalogue includes prominent Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu titles along with some English language films. New films such as Sultan, Kabali, Kapoor & Sons, Fan are also part of the catalogue. Most of these movies are censored as well. TV shows and non-Indian films are not censored.
Among the American TV shows, you have Seinfeld, which has Hindi subtitles as well, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, NCIS, Mad Men among others.
