Buy or Rent Videos

From the Amazon Instant Video Store on your Kindle Fire HD (Previous Generation), you can rent or buy movies and TV shows.

When you rent videos, you can watch them for a specified time period. When you purchase videos, you can watch them as often as you like. To learn more, go to Amazon Instant Video.

Note: Prime Instant Videos are movies or TV shows that can be viewed at no additional cost by eligible Amazon Prime and Prime Instant Video members in the UK and Channel Islands. Prime Instant Videos show a Prime badge on the title, and the detail page displays the Prime logo. Before you stream Prime Instant Videos, sign up for a paid annual Amazon Prime or Prime Instant Video membership. Not all videos available in the Amazon Instant Video store are available in the Prime Instant Video catalogue.

  1. From Home, tap Videos.
  2. Locate the videos you want to buy or rent:
    • Tap the magnifying glass and type your video title, and then tap the yellow magnifying glass button on your keyboard.
    • Swipe from the left edge of the screen to browse the store.
  3. Tap Rent or Buy on the video detail page. You can purchase videos in standard- and high-definition. Your purchase is automatically charged to your 1-Click payment method.

After you rent or buy a video, you can either stream it over a wireless network or download it to your Kindle Fire to watch offline.
