All three new tablets will now feature the ability to download select movies and televisions shows from Amazon ’s Prime Instant Video service for offline viewing. The videos also are temporary, meaning that they expire within 30 days after downloading, or 48 hours after the user first starts watching the content.
Depending on your physical location, Amazon allows users to download a maximum of 15 to 25 video titles at once. According to the company, you can download a maximum of either 15 or 25 total Prime Video titles (depending on your region) at once across all the devices connected to the same Amazon account.
According to Netflix, users can store a maximum of 100 unique titles on a single device at any given time. Amazon Household lets you link another account to your own, extending your Prime benefits to them, and vice versa.
Sign someone else up, and they can share access to Amazon ’s media services, as well as free Prime delivery. That means you can share purchased media like videos, music, Kindle books, and Audible audiobooks.
If you cancel at any other time, we will refund your full membership fee only if you and your account did not make any eligible purchases or take advantage of Prime benefits since your latest Prime membership charge. Amazon Prime Video is available on a vast selection of devices, including phones, tablets, games consoles, Blu-ray players, and even smart TVs.
Fortunately, the AmazonVideo app on Fire tablets, as well as Android and iOS devices, enables you to download movies. But there is an option of offline viewing on the app, where you can download the film and watch it, without an internet connection.
The videos also are temporary, meaning that they expire within 30 days after downloading, or 48 hours after the user first starts watching the content. Titles that are expiring from your device in less than 7 days will display the amount of time you have left on the Downloads page of the Netflix app.
Movies and TV shows that expire from your device in less than 7 days will display how much time is left in the “My Downloads” section of the Netflix app. For some movies and shows, offline viewing must be completed within 48 hours of the moment you press play.
What will happen to digital collections of books, movies, and music when the tech giants fall? There are two key differences between buying media in a physical format versus a digital one.
It helps to think about the experience of a person giving up CDs and using iTunes for music purchases instead. “In the good old days, you purchased a CD, which meant that you owned the medium outright and had an authorized copy that you could do anything you liked with, subject to copyright,” said Dan Hunter, the dean of Swinburne Law School.
These days we live in a world where we generally license copyright content, like games and music. Apple’s document outlining terms and conditions for purchases from the iTunes and App stores is nearly 80 pages long.
For streaming purchases, the unfortunate fate of one’s collection is pretty straightforward: “Let’s imagine Amazon goes out of business,” said Siva Vaidhyanathan, a media studies professor at the University of Virginia. Amazon, which didn’t respond to multiple interview requests for this story, doesn’t even have to go out of business for you to lose the film you bought.
Even in the realm of personal collections, the changing media landscape has implications beyond movies and music, too. He suspects that if Amazon were to go under, hackers would quickly figure out how to unlock the Kindle format, and hopefully salvage materials as PDFs or plain text that way.
Amazon Prime members can download a video and watch it later on the app without the need to actively stream it using the available data. This ability to download and watch later helps especially when you’re travelling as it provides entertainment on-the-go without worrying about being bogged down by a spotty network.
As we’ve mentioned before, not all Amazon Prime Video titles can be downloaded for offline viewing and the ones that can have a limit till when they can be accessed which varies. Depending on your physical location, Amazon allows users to download a maximum of 15 to 25 video titles at once.
