Tutorial: Get Amazon Instant Watch on NVidia Shield

We all know there are a few key TV streaming services missing from NVidia’s Shield console; namely Amazon Prime’s Instant Watch app. We’ll show you how to install and run it.

  • Option for allowing Unknown Sources to be on (Settings->Personal->Settings and Restrictions)
  • Amazon Prime Membership
  • A file manager installed (like AnExplorer)
  • Sideload Launcher installed (to access the files after installed)
  • A pointing device (mouse, etc. USB or bluetooth – doesn’t matter; the controller nor remote will do)
  • External device (flash drive, microSD, etc) with the two Amazon files on it (Download from Mega) or get them locally here and here.


  1. Insert the flash drive or microSD card the two Amazon files on it
  2. Turn on the Shield
