Amazon has updated its Video app, adding a major new feature that gives Prime an edge over competing video services like Netflix: offline playback. Amazon Prime customers can now download and store movies and TV shows available on through the streaming service, and play them back while away from an internet connection. This is perfect for the traveler who wants to keep up with their favorite shows, but doesn't always have a reliable data connection.
Downloads are currently available to Prime members in the US, UK, Germany, and Austria. To find videos that you have downloaded, simply tap the navigation menu on the left side of the screen, and select Your Downloads. You'll find all of your downloaded titles there. To delete a downloaded show or movie, simply tap Delete Download.
You can download Amazon Video using the Amazon Underground app.
