Amazon Instant Video w/ Prime (Question)

zodiac711 4,453 1,741 March 3, 2012 at 04:31 PM
One (remaining) question about Amazon prime -- reps for those who can help:

The primary paid Amazon Prime accountholder gets the free Amazon Instant Video (or whatever it's called). How many devices can this be used on? In short, could I set it up on a box in my home and another in a relative's house? (And if I did, could it be setup without them having access to the password/ability to order stuff randomly?)

1. The $39 student account does not allow anyone else to be put on the account..only yourself. If you have 4 "family" members that are interested, the standard $79 plan is better.

Here is the Terms of Use [amazon.com] but from what I can tell you basically create a license for a PC or device and then when you wish to watch it on another device or PC, you have to release that license so it can be set on a different device. Kinda like ITunes and autohrized PCs but I do not read anywhere about a limit of how often you can set and release the licenses.

You can have multiple devices attached to the same account. On my Tivo and Sammy Blu-Ray, you need to enter a pin number in order to purchase anything through these devices. Or you can purchase online and push the download to your attached device. So, no they can not just purchase anything on your account w/o your pin number.

I know it states it can only stream on up to two devices simultaneously... do you happen to have it 'activated' on more than two devices, or just the TiVo & BD player?
