Gone are the simple days of moving pictures and practical effects. These days, movies are more sophisticated, with computer-generated special effects and high-resolution images. However, each addition to a film or episode adds to the file size, which can make both downloading for at-home viewing and the process of creating the project more complicated than ever before.
Are you finding it hard to keep up with Amazon Prime Video's steady rotation of award-winning movies, shows, and Prime Video exclusives? Fortunately, the Amazon Video app allows you to download a number of your favorite flicks and episodes for offline viewing on your Android or iOS device or on a desktop Mac or Windows computer.
In this step-by-step guide, we'll teach you how to download movies and TV shows from Amazon to view later, as well as how to manage your files and a few tips and tricks for getting the best offline experience possible.
Step 2: Next, select a film or show that you want to download, and open the video details. Note that not all Amazon Prime movies or TV shows are available for download, and you can only download content if you are in certain areas (the U.S., for example). If it's a series, you can choose to download individual episodes or full seasons.
The amount of storage needed for a file depends on its quality. We downloaded the film Moonfall at the Best quality setting and it took up 1GB of storage on an iPhone, while at Better quality (the second-lowest), it took up 535MB. Alternately, season 1 of Upload, 10 episodes in all, took up 2.6GB when downloaded on Best quality.
Step 2: The next way is to tap the Three vertical dots menu of the movie and then select Delete download. A full season of a show will not have these dots but rather a Small arrow. Tapping the show will bring you to all the show's downloaded episodes you have. To delete them, read the next section.
Disney+: There are hundreds of Disney+ movies and shows, and a number of them are available for offline downloading. And guess what? The best part is that every single Disney+ entry is available to download. Simply choose the title you want and tap the Download button, located to the right of the Play now button. Disney+ even allows you to choose your download quality if you're finding yourself scrounging for storage space.
And if you don't care about having access to Amazon's catalog of free TV shows and movies, anyone can rent videos on Prime Video shows without a membership. Here's how to use the Prime Video service.
3. On the video's details page, you might have a choice of rental options. If the video is free, you'll see Watch Now or Play movie. Otherwise, you'll see buttons to rent or buy the video, sometimes with a choice of resolutions like standard definition (SD), high definition (HD), or 4K UHD.
1. Search or browse for the TV show or movie that you want to download. Select it to open the video's Details page. If it's available for download, you should see the Download button, which looks like a downward arrow.
Back in 2015, Amazon Prime Video was the first subscription-based streaming service to introduce the ability to download movies and TV shows for offline viewing on mobile devices. For travelers and users with limited data plans that like to watch films and episodes on the go, this was a godsend. Amazon has updated its apps many times since then, but the process remains relatively the same.
Just about every movie and TV show is available to download through Amazon Prime Video, but that only applies to members that pay. That means primary Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Video subscribers are the lucky ones. Unfortunately, Amazon Household members are left out in the cold, with only a handful of downloadable titles available. More on that later.
With all of the settings out of the way, now it's just a matter of downloading the movies and TV shows you want to watch offline. Tap on the title you want to download, and in the description page for it, you will see the "Download" button front and center. The exact placement of the buttons may vary on different devices or operating systems, but it is fairly self-explanatory.
Movies will just have the "Download" button while TV shows will have the option to download an entire season if it's included in Prime. If you just want to download individual episodes, you can do that too.
However, there is a limit to the number of titles you can download offline. According to Amazon, depending on your location, you have a maximum of 15 to 25 movies or TV shows you can download across all of your devices, which is where that auto-delete from SD cards option on Android comes in handy.
We should note that Amazon does make certain titles available to download for Amazon Household members, but it's only a limited number of movies and episodes. In fact, we only found TV episodes, and they are usually only the first episode of a series that is heavily promoted by Amazon. We were not able to find any downloadable Prime movies for Household members, which is unfortunate.
But whether or not you're a primary paying member or a Household member, if you rented or purchased a movie or TV show episode that is not included with Prime, you will be able to download it regardless of your account level.
All that is left is for you is to watch your downloaded movies or TV shows. Luckily, Amazon makes it easy with a dedicated "Download" section where all of your offline content lives. Finding the "Download" section is relatively the same for iOS and Android; the only difference is where the section is located.
Once you start watching a title offline, you'll have a specific amount of time to watch the movie or episode before it is automatically deleted. Amazon says the time will depend on the title you have downloaded. A warning in red letters will display under the title indicating the amount of time you have left. However, the countdown will disappear when you reconnect to the internet and will start over again the next time you go offline.

I got a message that I am almost out of storage on my iPad. Wen I looked at the Manage Storage I see that the Amazon Prime Video App has used up 1.5GM on my iPad. When I click on it it shows 1.4 GB of documents and storage. I don't download movies but rather stream them. I compared it to my Netflix App which used only 87.7 MB or SHO Anytime which used 11.6 MB. What should I do to remove this excessive storage ? Should I delete the App and reload it ?
I was able to free up about 700Mb from my Amazon Prime Video app without uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Inside the app, click on the downloads button on the bottom and look for any content that you have downloaded to your device. I had three TV shows and was able to delete each of them from my device one-by-one. It would be helpful if they added a feature to delete all downloaded content with a single button.
Also in the 'Manage' settings in the Downloads section, is the ability to turn on or off Auto Downloads. When on, you can choose how many episodes you would like to auto download with options from one to five.
