You see the error message “This device is not registered to an Amazon.com account. You can register this device to your Amazon.com account by going to Help.”

You need to associate your Xbox 360 console with your Amazon.com account. In the Amazon Instant Video app, go to the Help section and follow the instructions to complete this process.

You see the error message “Something went wrong, try again or pick another video. MP1032.”
