Amazon said it would allow members of its $99 annual Prime loyalty program free downloads of some shows and movies from its streaming video service to watch offline, or when no Internet connection is available.
The programs will be available via the Amazon Video app for iOS or Android. Shows will be downloadable to Apple and Android phones and tablets, including Amazon’s Fire devices — but not to desktops or laptops. Other streaming services like Netflix and Hulu offer streaming content, but Netflix said it had no plans to follow suit.
