There is no Amazon Prime channel. There is an Amazon Video channel, that includes the entire library, not just Prime content. The stuff that's not Prime will also show, so you can rent or buy.

You can filter by Prime content via the Options button. In the Amazon Video channel, it's up in the top right.

You can tell Prime content from standard content by the Prime logo on the thumbnails of the videos.

Go to STREAMING CHANNELS in the menu.  Then go to MOST POPULAR.  AMAZON channel should be 3rd or 4th from the top.  Right there

Yes... that's what I've been trying to do. I have NETFLIX, YOUTUBE, BLIM, CLARO VIDEO, HAPPY KIDS, RETALIATE, SNAKE, PLEX... those are the first I see, I have a total of 75. i have gone through all of them and can't find Amazon. :'(  I have looked in "featured", "new", "mort popular", "movies & TV" and I have gone several times one by one throuh all the channels. I also checked if there is an upgrade, but I have the latest. Strange, right?

I suspect it's not available on the Roku platform in that country. That would Amazon's decision. Roku's apps are available wherever the developer (Amazon, in this instance) says. And not where they say not.
