Why Is Amazon Prime in Spanish?

There are a few different reasons as to why your Amazon Prime is in Spanish. Here's a look at them.

  • You've clicked a foreign link. If you've clicked an Amazon Mexico or Spain link, for instance, then Amazon has automatically changed your language preferences to Spanish. 
  • You changed your language preference. Whether via the Amazon website itself or just Prime Video, you may have changed your language preferences to Spanish. Go back to the language settings to change it back.
  • You're using an old Roku unit. An unusual bug with older Roku units means watching Amazon Original shows on Roku switches the language to Spanish. Sometimes, a reboot fixes the issue but not always. In some cases, you will need to use a different device.
