RE: Watching film/TV offline

Before buying my Kindle Fire HD it was my understanding that I would be able to download films and watch them while offline eg travelling to work on the train. It now seems that this is not the case, at least it cannot be done from Amazon/Lovefilm. Is there anywhere else I can download compatible content from so that I can watch it offline ? This was one of the main reasons for me to buy the Fire HD.

It seems that this is possible in the US -

I'm not interested in converting file formats or that kind of thing. I just want to be able to download rather than stream.

Thanks for any comments/suggestions.

What I Read

RE: Watching film/TV offline

LoveFilm is a streaming-only service (which is a PITA, and one of the reasons why I ditched it). About the best I can suggest is the Digital Copy feature on some DVDs, which will transfer to Android (presumably including the KF). Unfortunately Amazon blocks you from the regular Google Play store, which is where you would normally buy films to download on Android tablets. (there's a way round that, but it'll void your warranty)

So, yeah, you're pretty much stuffed when it comes to downloading movies, & if that's what you want to do, I'd suggest returning it and getting a regular Android tablet, such as the Nexus 7.

Savemedia can download videos offline and convert them to MP3 and MP4 at the same time: https://savemedia.com/
Actaully ,I used to use this http://www.videoconverterfactory.com...
It's a desktop software and can download videos  and convert them to compatible files in batches.
