How Do I Change Video Quality on Amazon Prime on Smart TV?

If you’re an Amazon Prime user and enjoy watching movies and TV shows on your Smart TV, you might have noticed that the video quality doesn’t always meet your expectations. However, don’t worry! In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of changing the video quality on Amazon Prime on your Smart TV.

Step 1: Open Amazon Prime Video App

First, turn on your Smart TV and open the Amazon Prime Video app. If you don’t have it installed already, download it from your Smart TV’s app store.

Step 2: Select a Video to Watch

Once you’re in the app, find the movie or TV show that you want to watch. Click on the thumbnail to open a description page.

Step 3: Choose Video Quality

On this page, scroll down until you see “Streaming Quality.” Here, you can choose between different video quality options such as Good, Better, Best or High, Medium and Low (depending upon what options are available). The option names may vary depending upon what device or app version is being used.

Step 4: Start Watching

After selecting the desired video quality option that suits your internet speed and preferences click ‘Play’ to start watching. It’s important to note that higher video quality requires more internet bandwidth which could lead to buffering if not enough bandwidth is available.


  • If you face buffering issues despite selecting lower quality options try pausing for a while & clearing out any other devices connected to internet.
  • If your internet speed is slow as per standard recommendations switch to lower quality options like Low/Medium instead of Good/Better/High/Best.
  • You can change streaming quality every time before starting a new video but there isn’t an option currently available for setting it as default for every video playback.


In conclusion, changing video quality on Amazon Prime on your Smart TV is a simple process that can help improve your viewing experience. Follow the above steps to choose the right video quality option that suits your preferences and internet speed.

Don’t hesitate to experiment with different options to find the one that works best for you. Enjoy watching your favorite movies and TV shows in better quality!
