Q: Can I Run iTunes on my Kindle? I have a Kindle Fire HD, a great, low cost tablet that lets me apparently watch TV and movies in addition to just read books. And I have a bunch of movies and TV shows I've purchased from iTunes Store. Can I also watch them on my Kindle? By Dave Taylor asked on dailycamera.com.
The Kindle Fire is a tablet version of Amazon's Kindle e-book reader, which includes access to the Amazon App store, streaming movies and TV shows, and Kindle's e-books-was released to consumers in the United States on November 15, 2011. In September 2015, the Kindle Fire was upgraded to the latest edition with price of US$49.99 named "Fire 7".
You can access the Amazon Prime Video library through your Kindle Fire HD easily enough, but that's the problem: movies or TV shows you purchased from iTunes Store doesn't give you the license rights to also watch them on the Amazon platform, so you'd be out of luck. You have paid for the movies but you can't play them freely. It's not fair.
