Amazon Instant Video app for iPad

Description

Watch thousands of titles available from Prime Instant Video at no additional cost with an Amazon Prime membership and over 120,000 videos available from the Amazon Instant Video store by installing the Amazon Instant Video app. Download purchased and rented videos from Your Video Library for offline viewing on airplanes, road trips, or any time a WiFi connection is unavailable. Keep track of movies and TV shows to watch later by adding them to Your Watchlist. A selection of top Prime Instant Video titles is included in the app, and you can visit Amazon to add other Prime titles to Your Watchlist. Start watching a video on an iPad and Whispersync technology automatically syncs your place between devices, allowing videos to be resumed from where you left off on a Kindle Fire, PS3, PC, Mac, or hundreds of models of connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

With Amazon Instant Video, you can:

• Stream thousands of titles available from Prime Instant Video at no additional cost with a Prime membership, or watch over 120,000 videos available from the Amazon Instant Video store
• Download purchased and rented videos from Your Video Library
• Shop over 120,000 videos available from the Amazon Instant Video store by visiting Amazon 
• Add videos to your Watchlist from a PC, Mac, or Kindle Fire for later viewing on your iPad

• Start watching on your iPad, and resume watching right where you left off on a Kindle Fire, PS3, PC, Mac, or hundreds of models of connected TVs and Blu-ray players with Amazon Whispersync.

An app of this magnitude adds even more value to an Amazon Prime membership, which costs $79 per year. That provides you with free two day shipping on most items, no minimum order size, a free Kindle book to borrow per month and unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows.

    This. Is. Awesome. I dropped my netflix membership a few months ago, and may now need to get an Amazon Prime membership! I had no idea this is a service Amazon offered.

    I like the idea of downloading movies or shows I purchased, but I find that is a poor way to manage my media due to very limited storage space on my devices. That requires me to download, erase, and then re-download movies after I have watched it. No, I prefer to have my media stored, like The Cloud services out there, on my DVR at home. I discovered I could do that after I asked my Dish coworker questions about how he watches movies at work. Now, I stream with my Sling Adapter and the Dish Remote Access app, just like he does, because I have the content that I like on my DVR and live TV, and it’s current. The Dish Remote Access app works on both my iPad and Galaxy Tab so it is versatile too.
