Amazon Reportedly Bringing Prime Instant Video to Android  Print E-mail
Home Theater News What Is On In HD News

According to a report by PC Advisor, Amazon is gearing up to release an Android app for its popular Prime Instant Video service. With that said, it is unknown if the proposed app will support both tablets and smartphones.

Currently, Amazon only offers Prime Instant Video access for its own line of Kindle Fire tablets, the Fire TV, the iPad, game consoles, and smart TVs. This leaves the rest of the vast Android community out of luck. But with this new app, Amazon plans to extend its reach to the entire growing Android user base. Likewise, the company is also actively pursuing 4K content delivery, and Ultra HD media support might be a part of the upcoming app as well.

An exact date for the Android app has not been disclosed, but its release is said to be "imminent." Prime Instant Video is available now for $99 per year, and offers customers a growing lineup of movies and TV series that includes exclusive streaming rights to a large selection of HBO shows, Fox's '24,' the BBC series 'Orphan Black,' FX's 'The Americans,' and NBC's 'Hannibal.'
