This is a guide on how to change the DNS setting on Kindle Fire HD8, so that one can watch Amazon Instant Videos in Malaysia. This is for advance users who already have a DNS service subscription.
If you want to purchase Amazon Instant Videos, you will need to have a valid Amazon account and Kindle Malaysia gift card. If you want to watch unlimited Amazon Prime streaming video, you will also need to have an Amazon Prime subscription.
You will also need to have your own DNS service subscription for this to work, such as unlocator.
