    Really Basic Question @ Tablets

    Haven't had any experience with tablets. I have a very basic question . . . . all of the streaming services (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Prime) - can you download the movies/shows and view offline or can you only watch in streaming mode?

    Papa, Netflix, Hulu Plus and Prime streaming don't want to support users that might be interested in starting a library of video materials, therefore you won't be able to download them to watch later. But if you want to pickup where you left off when you return to a wifi hotspot, the video will remember that point in the same way that a Kindle reader remembers what page you left off on when reading a book.

    Hope this helps.

    From the Fire product page: "Over 100,000 movies and TV shows, including thousands of new releases and your favorite TV shows, are available to stream or download, purchase or rent"

    Not from the services you asked about, I don't think. (Netflix, Hulu+). Now you CAN buy or even rent movies from Amazon Instant, and I'm pretty sure the rentals/purchases can be dowloaded to the device for viewing later when you don't have wifi. But the streaming services require a wifi connection because they're constantly connecting to the servers to send data to your device; you never store the entire movie/video on your device at any time with streaming.

    Did a lot more research and you CAN download movies from Prime, just not the free ones. You can buy or rent (48 hours) movies and download them to the Fire for viewing while offline.

    Looks like rentals vary from 1.99 to 6.99 with most being 3.99. Not bad IMO.

    Ya that's normal prices for rentals. The newer the movies, the more it costs.maybe $3.99 at most I would spend.
    @papa, those 48 hour time frame might be from the time u start viewing it, u only have that small window to watch as much u want? For that that particular rental?
