Does anyone know if it is possible to watch NBC shows on the Kindle Fire... i.e. Grimm?

You can watch them on Hulu Plus (it's a paid service--it's $7.99 per month), but you also might be able to watch them on the NBC site (I've never tried, so I don't know).

If you do go the Hulu route, you will need to download the app from Amazon's AppStore--it's free.

Thanks! I just downloaded the Hulu+ app.. NBC does not seem to allow you to access the video content, but ABC does...

You're welcome--remember, though, that the Hulu+ membership is not free. (-:

Yes you can, and you do not have to pay anything.

In the Web area, book mark the NBC video page. Then, when you want to stream any of their provided videos, just click your bookmark.

I have bookmarks set up for the video pages for all of the broadcast stations and the cable ones that actually do still allow you to stream (USA, for example).

hmm... I bookmarked the NBC video page, and it still says at the top of the video I tried to pull up for a Grimm episode "Sorry, the content you are trying to access is not currently available on this device."

Can you confirm the video page? Or, maybe I am missing something else...

Thanks for the help!

Its glitchy - last night I watched half of the premiere of Love in the Wild but today "that content is not available on this device." Hmmm. Also to get it to work initially a few months ago I had to change a setting so that the browser would behave like a desktop, instead of a tablet. Worked fine until today.

You might also try using a different browser than the pre-installed one. Maybe that will help? Try Dolphin HD.

Hey- thanks Laura. Never occurred to me that I could!
