Searching for items on Amazon that are (or can be) subject to the benefits of being an Amazon Prime subscriber isn't a whole lot different from searching Amazon more generally. If you need some help with (or a refresher on) how to search on Amazon, see our Amazon Search tutorial.
Basically, all you do differently is look for an option in the left-hand menu of filters that says "Amazon Prime", and click the check box beside it to mark it.
Suppose, for example, that you want to search for a movie or TV show on Amazon Instant Video to see whether or not you can stream it for free as a benefit of being an Amazon Prime subscriber.
Go to www.amazon.com in your web browser and log in.
Click the menu to the left of the search box and select Amazon Video. Then, click in the search box and type in the name of the movie or TV show that you are looking for. Then click the magnifying glass to the right of the search box.
When you reach your results page, look in the left-hand menu, under "Refine By". Underneath "Amazon Prime", click Prime Eligible.
You will notice that all of your results now say "Unlimited Streaming with Prime", and have the Watch Now button beside them.
That's a brief overview of how to search for Amazon Prime-eligible content on Amazon!
