We have the early versions of Kindle. We travel outside the USA. For those that are interested, we have no problems downloading books with those older versions. It works great. Now we have a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 heading our way. Anyone experiencing problems with video, and APPs ? Particuliarly in South America. Thanks!

You will not be able to stream any videos while you are out of the US. You can get your books and apps still.

You will have to download the movies you want to watch while away which requires you to rent or purchase them, you cannot download the Prime videos.

Thank you for the response. BTW, Amazon's customer service is rated as number 1 by many sources. I appreciate what you folks do !

Scott, I appreciate your compliment to Bixillarla! Just to be clear, we people who post here generally aren't Customer Service...we are just Kindle owners like you. :) However, Amazon providing this forum for us to help each other is, in my opinion, an example of their care of their customers.
