Amazon Prime Video is such a rival to Netflix now, and permits you to explore your favorite and new movies on amazon. The prime video app gives you the opportunity to download videos on the go and watch them at your convenience.
First, you will need the amazon prime app to get these prime videos. Your new amazon prime movies can only be downloaded to either your smartphone or tablet, but not with your laptop. This is because it is compatible with the Android and iOS.

How to Download and Watch Amazon Prime Video/Movies
Sign in to your amazon account and follow these simple steps. The following are the steps to download and watch amazon prime movies to your Android or iOS devices:
Step 1: Connect the device (Android or Tablet) to a Wi-Fi network and open the Prime Video app.
Step 2: If you intend to download the file over mobile data instead of Wi-Fi, first swipe in from the left. There, you can locate the settings option.
Step 3: Then tap the toggle to turn off the Download on Wi-Fi only.
Step 4: You have the option to choose the title you want to download. You can open its details by tapping on it.
Step 5: Tap the Download button on the details page to start downloading. For TV shows, you’ll be asked if you’d like to download the whole series or just one particular episode. In my opinion, I think it’s better to take the option of downloading only the episodes you’re yet to watch.
Step 6: Then select the video quality you want to download. If you want, you can make it a default setting by scrolling to the bottom.
Step 7: Once the movie or TV show is downloaded, you can check your amazon download list. All you need do is simply open the menu again via your amazon app and tap on Downloads to see a list of your prime downloaded videos.
Tap on the file to go back to the detail page. Here, you can watch by tapping the Watch Now button, or remove the file.
Note: All the downloaded files are only viewable via the Amazon Prime Video app, and are saved in such a way as to prevent copying them to a different location to prevent piracy. Conveniently use the tabs at the top of the amazon download section to switch between your new movies and your TV shows.
