Have you signed up for Amazon unlimited? Or do you have an Amazon prime account? You need either of these to get music from Amazon. Amazon unlimited music is £79 per year if you haven't got prime unless you get the direct to Alexa version which is £3.99 per month, either way you need an Amazon account.. You can also play Spotify or deezer thru Alexa but again subscription is required.
Regarding the UK Alexa app, couldn't you download it from play store using a VPN?

Hi Ed
I have an Amazon account and am trying to download the Alexa version but no joy so far keeps saying a problem with payment method, have tried three different cards and no luck. So am a bit of a loss at the moment.

Probably stating the obvious but have you contacted customer support ?

Re: Alexa Amazon Dot

Can this dot thing see intruders in your living room and does it send a picture to the cloud or an sd card (which is no use as it can be stolen).

Re: Alexa Amazon Dot

I am in Manavgat Antalya region and my Alexa Works the same as the uk, occasionally I will have a problem where she says my WiFi signal is not strong enough but thatís it. I just plugged it in, connected to the WiFi and it worked the same.

Re: Alexa Amazon Dot

It is a virtual private network. You download the software and choose where you wish your computer to 'be seen' (i chose London so that the BBC Iplayer will not know that I am out of the UK). When you want to use the vpn you open it before you browse and it looks as if you are in another country.i have used mine for 9 years, and pay $85 per year, with full support 24/7.

Re: Alexa Amazon Dot

I noticed that tethering to my vodafone payg ( UK package ) whilst in Turkey that it immediately set my IP as a uk based node , i did not need a vpn for anything , BBC or Ch4 or wikipeadia .
