Use Amazon Prime offline

If you want to watch videos on the go, you have to download the corresponding content in the Amazon Prime app. It works like this:

  1. Open the Amazon Prime Video app on your Android phone or iPhone.
  2. Find the content you want to watch on the go.
  3. You will find the option in the description of the content Download. If you tap the down arrow, the download for offline playback starts.
  4. In the case of series, a complete season can be downloaded in one fell swoop. If you only want to save individual episodes, scroll down in the season overview and tap on the download symbol with the down arrow.
  5. When downloading for the first time, you decide whether content from Amazon Prime is to be downloaded to the mobile phone memory or to an external memory card.
  6. In the next step you set the quality for the Prime Video download. The sharper the image, the greater the memory requirement. You put the hook at Manage as default, the quality level is used for future downloads.

For licensing reasons, some content is not offered for offline use.

Amazon Prime: Limits for video download

The download starts and is carried out automatically in the background. You can then find your content for offline playback via the menu of the Prime Video app. To do this, tap on My videos and switch to the tab Downloads. This can also be used to delete content.

Also note the download limit. Videos can only be downloaded on a maximum of two different devices. If you want to see the same film offline on a third mobile phone or tablet, you must first delete the content on another device.

A maximum of 15 or 25 titles can be downloaded at the same time. If the limit is exhausted, videos must first be deleted in order to download new films and series episodes. The number of maximum downloads applies to all devices on which your Amazon account is registered.

If you want to reset a device, first delete the Prime downloads in the app. Otherwise, the content may not be deducted from your quota. You will then have to remove the device via your Amazon account in order to get back the slots for the download limit.

Download videos on PC

There is actually no provision for a download function for Prime videos on the PC. You can, however, take advantage of the offline mode of the Android app. An Android emulator like the Bluestacks Player can help you here. The program can also be used to start Android apps on the PC. If you have downloaded the Amazon Prime Video app here, you can also use it to manage offline videos.
