LOVEFiLM is deeply integrated with the all-new Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire and allows users to instantly stream and interact with thousands of movies and TV shows using Kindle’s sophisticated features to enhance the viewing experience including:
Users can plan their viewing experiences by creating an unlimited playlist of movies and TV shows which can be accessed on demand at the users’ convenience.
Powers the LOVEFiLM Pause and Resume function that keeps track of the last location in a video so viewing can be resumed from exactly the same spot on any LOVEFiLM device. This means film fans can, for example, start watching something on their Kindle Fire HD, pause the movie or TV show, and return to it on the PS3, without having to search for their place.
X-RAY FOR MOVIES
“X-Ray for Movies”, is a new feature that revolutionises the movie experience by bringing the power of IMDb directly to movies on Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD, accessible with a simple tap.
Without ever leaving the movie, customers can look up any actor in the scene or movie, see what other movies they have been in and view photos, biographies and more. X-Ray for Movies is exclusive to the Amazon ecosystem.
IMDb, an Amazon company for 14 years, is the #1 movie website in the world with more than 160 million monthly unique visitors worldwide.
Both the all-new Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire will come with a month’s free subscription for new LOVEFiLM users in the UK.
