Amazon Instant Video Android Download For Mobile Users

So finally Amazon brings instant video to Android and this certainly a good move. Now you can watch movies anywhere and anytime. At least that is what Amazon says in their sales page HERE. I purchase one movie from Amazon downloaded it and it was fine. Looking forward to download more Amazon movies soon.

So coming back to the topic, Amazon instant video Android download is now available. And the 2 paragraph below is the what Amazon says about their new services.

What Amazon says

We have it all, anytime you want it: this week's newest movie releases, your must-watch TV shows, and classic favorites, all available right now. Plus, you can subscribe to current TV seasons, with new episodes available the day after they air.

Our store offers instant streaming on Kindle Fire HD, as well iPad, PS3, Xbox, Wii, Wii U, Roku, on hundreds of TVs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, and on the Web. Plus, all of your videos are stored in Your Video Library, so you can access them anywhere you go.

Costumers opinion

And this is what Alan Buckingham in his blog betanews.com said about Amazon instant video Android download for mobile users. According to him, Amazon is Netflix's biggest competitors, but the company had a gaping hole in its armor. While the app works just fine on the Kindle Fire tablets, it was MIA for every other Android user out there. Now the retail giant has finally made the service available to other users on the popular platform, but before you get excited, there is a catch, and it is a big one.

When you find the app in the Google Play store you will immediately notice two things -- one is that it only works with version 3.2 and up of the OS. The other is even more troubling. The app is for Google TV only. Even the new flagship Nexus devices are not capable of using it.

Despite Amazon Instant Video working on the company's own tablets, the retailer has chosen to render its app useless for the majority of users on the most popular mobile platform in the world.

It gets worse -- some Google TV devices running versions 4.1 or 4.2 are also apparently not compatible, according to some reports. In fact, it seems it is not even compatible with all of the devices that Amazon claims it is.

I can cut the service a break for the moment. After all it debuted in the Google Play store today and there is no doubt some kinks to be worked out. However, it is an inauspicious debut from a company we should certainly expect more from. Here is to hoping that Amazon gets this together in 2013 and, if you are using a Google TV then let us know if it does or does not work on your device.

BUT.. there are also some costumers who are quite happy with this new service from Amazon

James Williams says.."You can watch them through the browser on Android devices. Lots of noobs commenting below...

So what now?

If you ask me, it is up to you. If you trust Amazon or willing to give it a try, then you should try it. May be you purchase one movie from Amazon Instant Movie download to begin with. If there is problem, then don't buy from Amazon ever again, or if it is fine then you can continue using Amazon Instant Video Android Download in the future.
