5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome App! April 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
Exactly what I expected. Received a free movie from purchasing The Hobbit and loaded it into Flixster. Works great and allowed my kids to watch the movie on my kindle. Could even download it onto the memory and watch it if there was no service!!

Easy to use. Love the way new movies pop right up, but it also has a search feature that is easy to find and use. Highly recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Downloaded movies and WiFi July 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I think this app has great potential. There are several things that I like about it, mostly the movie time features, and access to reviews and dvd information. What kills it for me is that you cannot watch downloaded movies without a Wi-Fi connection on the Kindle Fire. I found that out the hard way on a 10.5 hour plane flight. Looking around, it appears that they have addressed this issue with an updated version for other platforms, but it hasn't been made available for the Kindle Fire yet. Until they do, this app has limited usefulness for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoyed January 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought a DVD combo pack with UV. Had to d/l this app on my kindle fire HD, sign up for two different accounts (Flixter and UV), and enter the UV code. After all of that, it won't let me watch the movie. Every time I press "watch now", it says "initializing", then does nothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I got it March 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
This such a handy app. I can plug in whatever city I"m at and find the nearest theater with the movie times. It even gives the trailers, critic and audience ratings. They give a brief bio on the actors. In some cases it gives the Dvd release date.

how much space does a movie download take?
Hi Ryan, when using the app on my kindle fire if I click "Download" on an SD movie it tells me that the movie will be 718MB and I have 1.4GB on my device. I can either continue the download or cancel. For an HD movie it says it will be 842MB. And for a very long HD movie (Argo) it... Read More

Flixster Operation
And you said you get this same error no matter if you try to download the movie or stream it? Take a look at to see if they have any answers posted there that could help you. If not, maybe uninstall and reinstall the app and try again.

No TV Show support?!
Same problem on my Fire Stick. The iOS app and the browser access to Flixster allow the choice of all titles/movies/tv shows. Maybe we are missing something but I too can't find a way to view TV show uv purchases.

HD Support?
If you have purchased an HD license from Flixster, VUDU, CinemaNow, etc.) or have registered a UV copy, hitting "Watch now" will bring up a pop-up dialog box asking if you want the SD or HD version. Note that HD playback, however, is governed by the studio. It appears that for most... Read More
