Watched TV on KFHD

I swore it was something I just wouldn't do. People have gigantic TVs these days, why why why would anyone want to watch TV or movies on their KF or teeny tiny phones?

There was nothing to do at work last night and of course the TV there only has basic cable. So I watched 4 hours of Homeland on my KFHD. I sort of get it now.

I use Kindle when i am outside my house. It's very unique and easy to use and really helps with my business too.

Do you mean streaming from Amazon / Netflix / Hulu / etc? I grab random episodes of new-to-me shows when they're free on Amazon, as well as watching Netflix on my Fire before bedtime to make my way through various seasons of shows. It's nice! Plus, with Amazon doing the "free before it airs" promotions I get to catch new pilots before they come on television so I can decide if it's worth a Season Pass on my TiVo.

I use my Amazon Prime On Demand subscription occasionally to watch documentaries. Otherwise I'm not into watching TV in general. I had to look after the dog a few Saturdays ago and sat watching TV all day for the first time in like two years. It felt really awkward. It was like I had never seen a TV in my life. LOL. I used the app on my iPad because I forgot how to use a remote - I always used to get up and change channels on the U-verse box itself.

I barely even use YouTube anymore too.

I use my Fire HD for Netflix. I won't consider Prime Videos until Amazon releases an Android app for it. Paid services must be compatible on all of my Android devices.

I'm in the same boat.

The Fire HD also is great for watching free, full-length movies hosted by YouTube.

I was watching via the Infinity app. However, your replies gave me a new idea. I had no idea that YouTube had whole movies. Cool.

It comes with the youtube app that allows you to download any full movie posted! Right now I have 3-4 Disnay Classics on my Fire HD. I dont even pay for Pime Netflix or any place. Youtube has a better selection & it FREE!

Gotcha; it's a third party YouTube app similar to the one I posted.
