Amazon Prime Introduces Offline Viewing

Amazon have announced that Prime Video subscribers can now watch select programming offline.

iOS and Android users now have the option to download TV shows and movies available in the streaming library to their smartphones or tablets while they are online, for the option of watching when they do not have an available internet connection.

Netflix have steadfastedly refused to offer an offline viewing option to their service, believing that increasingly-improving 4G and wifi connections means the need for offline viewing is reducing amongst users. Despite this, Amazon have decided to now offer the viewing option, meaning that TV shows such as Hannibal and Sons of Anarchy, and movies like Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire can now be viewed irrespective of an internet connection.

At this time, only subscribers in United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and Austria can use the offline option and must have the Amazon Video application on their device.

Amazon Prime’s subscriber base is expected to increase going into 2016 following the announcement that former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be producing exclusive content for the streaming service.
