Can I Share Amazon Prime With A Family Member

I just logged into my Prime viewing and spotted there are some live football matches on and although I no interest in watching them my father would so wondering does Amazon allow sharing and can only one house be using the service at the same time?
Also I notices some matches are in UHD and not listed as non UHD would a non 4K TV be able to view them albeit not in 4K?

If yes to the sharing how do you set the second TV up for it?

Know if I already use it on 3 devices at my house as in my ip address I can still use it at an other so long as we're not using at the same time(not totally clear about the Ways to Watch)?

Managed to get it work on my dads tv for some reason it was not coming up with the log in code to register his tv and was told by Amazon to delete my registration and then try and was given a link when I went to it I saw some I did not recognise i.e. in Hawaii :confused: and found that was my TV so re registered it then tried my dads and that went in OK .

Question the match he interested in is one showing UHD but he not got a UHD set and there no standard version showing if he clicks on that tomorrow will it still show in non UHD?

Be interested to know this as well, only have full hd tv set
My sister used my Prime account on her 1080p tv last Xmas and I'm sure I clicked on the UHD copy of Grand Tour and it played ok even though that was HDR too. The TV just downscales to 1080p.

I just noticed under the UHD the match I set it up for my dad it has no Prime banner.
I thought Amazon was getting these matches in at the same time as there 3 month as a temptation to get long term subscribers.
Anyway not long to see if it turns out fre or not(BTW not watched any sports events on Prime so dont know how it works just know on films and TV no Prime corner babber and you pay).

I watched Jack Ryan using my none 4k Youview box and 1080p TV and noticed the title specifically said it was the 4k HDR version. So I'd suggest it's a yes to that question. Of course after realising it was 4k I moved rooms and watched it on my new 4k TV in the other room and I'm glad I did.

Looks like its in with Prime the one my dad wants to watch. I don't know as it did not have the Prame banner across the corner and even on Sky there spor you sometimes have to pay for.
