Amazon Launches Instant Video Player for Android, Finally

By Karen Fratti 

amazon-instant-video-logoThis week, Amazon has released a Prime Instant Video app for Android users. It’s been a long time coming, too.

Android users can now download (or update) the Amazon app and have full access to everything everyone else does with Prime Instant Video — browse and shop for video content and then watch it on the (separately downloaded) Instant Video Player.

Apparently, it’s only working in the U.S. right now and some tablets aren’t compatible yet. In any case, Android tablet users can now join everyone else in wasting money on Amazon Prime.

Amazon is  full of changes this week; they’ve also modified how season passes work. For now it’s up to the publisher whether they charge customers episode by episode as they air (the old way) or make you pay the whole total up front.
