I have amazon prime and I want to download movies/TV shows to my Kindle Fird HD for free.

Am I able to download any movies or TV shows so I can watch them without having internt?

For free? No. Prime Instant Videos (free) are streaming only unless you have the HDX which does allow for a download. You can rent videos and download them for viewing later.

L Waring, which Fire HD do you have? When did you purchase it? The one currently being sold, as well as the Fire HDX models, can download some Prime videos. The first gen Fire HD can't.

Videos that have been purchased or rented can be downloaded on all Fire models.

Is it true that a downloaded film is only available for a certain time? Is this true about books as well?

For videos, yes: Here is the information from the Prime instant Video Rules:
If you have a Prime membership or Prime free trial, you can stream any video that is currently designated as a Prime Instant Video title on its detail page. You can watch Prime Instant Video titles that you've downloaded within a limited viewing period, which varies by title.
* You'll typically have 15 to 30 days to begin watching the video and once you start watching it, you'll typically have 48 hours to finish watching it. We'll usually notify you when the viewing period for a title is close to expiring.

If you want to read all the rules you can get them here:

Prime books that you check out of the KOLL do not expire but you cannot get a new one until you return the last one. Also, it is only one book per month regardless of how long it takes to read.
