I need advice on masking my IP so I can use Amazon Prime's free video streaming. They restrict me because I'm in Puerto Rico. Any advice?

I hope this isn't illegal since I'm trying to use a service I pay for.

Proxy or VPN service if they don't block them is your only option really.

VPN is pricey, from what I've read. How do I achieve proxy? Is it easy for a layman like me?

VPN doesn't have to be expensive. I know that there are active threads on doing this at the XBMC forum, so you might want to check over there.

Will do. Thanks.

It's so weird that Hulu has no issues with my IP address but Amazon Prime is being a pain.
