Amazon today said Prime customers can now download videos for offline playback. The feature, part of Amazon Prime Instant Video, is compatible with Fire tablets, the Fire Phone, Android phones and tablets, and iOS devices, such as the iPhone. Amazon is offering an unknown percentage of its video library for offline playback, including televisions shows, classic movies, and newer cinematic releases. Not all videos are available for download/offline playback; compatible videos will be marked as such. Prime subscribers can download the video file via WiFi and will have between 15 to 30 days to watch the video (varies by title) before the viewing period ends. Offline viewing is only available to residents of the U.S.

Well... it's compatible with Android tablets, but it's a lousy kludge.

1). De-secure your non-Amazon phone/tablet by allowing installation from unknown sources

2). Install the Amazon app store

3). Download their app which allows viewing

4). Go to a webpage, select your movie, and it goes back into the app to view.

All of these steps are garbage, but #4 shows how terrible the interface is.

Needed Space

With more apps doing things like this, I cant understand why Samsung would get rid of the SD cards. I hope they would reconsider the choice, and return SD to the next note line up. I use Amazon Prime and there are times (Travel) where downloading a movie or music is the best choice and you need to have space to do it
