Amazon Video now allows Prime members to download movies and TV shows

Amazon has updated its Amazon 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 U.S., U.K., Germany, and Austria. To find videos that you have downloaded, tap the Library tab at the bottom of the app, then select Refine in the top right of the screen. Select the On Device option, and you'll be given a list of downloaded movies and TV shows. 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 from the App Store right now.
