Your Comcast remote is only going to control CC through your cable box. It can’t control Amazon Prime CC on your tv itself or however you’re accessing Amazon Prime. There’s no access to amazon Prime through the cable boxes.

Have you checked through the options found on the Amazon Prime app itself?  You may have to turn the option on there. Also; are any movies marked C.C. ?

I just checked Amazon prime, they do have a support forum, they might have the answers for your question.
