You can stream videos on up to two devices at a time. But Prime is mostly about the free two day shipping.

You can only stream two videos at the same time. Beyond that, there is no restriction on the number of devices on your account.

So why did my purchased movies disappear from my Kindle when I registered my TV? They are also on my computer, but I don't watch movies on it as the eyestrain is worse.

Granted the free shipping is nice, but Amazon gives free shipping already on orders over $35.

Prime costs less than Netflix, has a better selection of movies than Netflix, and best of all, I can purchase the movies that they don't stream for free. I currently have almost 400 digital movies that I have purchased.

We haven't even talked about the hundreds of thousands of free kindle books I get to "borrow" as a Prime member.

I like the free shipping, but let's be honest. I would get that on almost all my purchases, even without Amazon Prime.

No, Amazon Prime is not about free shipping, or at least, that is at the bottom of the list, when it comes to why I pay for Amazon Prime.

Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, and a few others allowed me to cut the cable. Of all of them, Amazon Prime gets probably 90% of my viewing time.

Prime is about free 2 DAY shipping. There's a big difference between the Prime shipping and the 5 to 7 day, or more, free shipping you get with orders of $35. It's like the difference between First Class and Coach.

It's free 2 day shipping with Prime. Free shipping takes 5-8 business days. If you don't mind waiting that long, then it's fine.

How do you add another kindle to Prime account

Just register it to that Amazon account. If it's already registered to a different one, you'll need to deregister it from that one first.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2013 8:09:57 PM PST

Have a 1st gen. Fire and original Kindle registered under one acct. Just got Prime under different acct and wanted to put both kindles on it.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2013 8:27:27 PM PST
the fire will lose all content that is currently on the device. The eink, however, will keep the books on the device but once deleted from the device you will have to reregister to the account where the book is to re-d/l to the device.

If I were you I would see if the Prime Membership (which I am guessing was new/gift) could be transferred to the account where the kindles are currently registered.

The purchases on the now non prime account will always be there but it will just prevent frustration later.

I subscribed to Prime many years ago before ever there were Kindles and was perfectly happy with it. I buy many items which are under the minimum for free regular shipping and very much enjoy getting 2 day delivery. That is what I bought it for. Having the movies available was a nice perk. Borrowing one book a month for free has not been especially exciting for me because the book selection is, for the most part, abysmal.

Prime is certainly not mostly about 2 day shipping... if you have a kindle, that's about the smallest aspect to it. You get thousands of free movies, apps, tv shows, and books... that's why we love prime.

Prime was a shipping program long before Kindles even came on the scene. Prime videos, the KOLL, and Kindle First, are perks that have been added to the Prime program.

Each of those perks, on its own, isn't a large enough benefit to make Prime worth joining.

The shipping benefit, on its own, makes Prime a good purchase for users who order a lot from Amazon.

Prime is a shipping program, first and foremost.

My daughter was watching a Sesame Street video on one device. We turned it off and went to the other device, and we received a message that we had exceeded the maximum number (3) of devices that could stream at once. This would suggest that our one device was the fourth device. No other devices were being used to stream this account. What gives? What are we paying for if we can't stream a video we purchased on one device???

The thing that kills me, as it seems there is a common theme within these postings. Folks keep referring to all the free stuff they are getting from the Prime membership. . .

Is it not true, that to get this "free" stuff you basically have to PAY $80 for 12-months of "free" stuff?

Ummm, sounds like a lot of victims of the advertising, they brainwashed you into thinking that $80 = free.

Just my 2¢ worth on the matter . . .

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 3, 2014 12:55:04 AM PST
Well, there is free & then there is free. =)

In this instance, it is free in the sense that Amazon did not raise their price of Prime when they added the streaming & KOLL & will not lower the price of Prime when if they stop the Streaming & KOLL - as they can stop either or both of those if they decide to, as the TOS states.

So, while you have to pay $79 for Prime, the KOLL & video streaming is "free" for Prime members.

No added costs were involved & the price will not go down when/if they are stopped.

Well, with Prime, its main reason for being is to provide free 2-day shipping. The streaming and KOLL are just added perks.
