You will need access to a web browser on a computer or other device capable of connecting to the Internet.
Prime Video is usually pre-installed on Sony TVs. However, the app can also be downloaded from Google Play Store on Android TV.
Only Android TVs can download apps. These apps are not pre-installed on other TVs and are not available for download.
