Once canceled, you’ll still be able to watch until the month is over. If you’re worried you’ll forget to stop the renewal, you can subscribe right now and then immediately cancel to just get 1 month at $0.99, since you don’t have to subscribe for 2 months.

Amazon Prime Video app w/ Offline Viewing is now available for Windows 10

An Amazon Prime Video app has just been released in the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 computers. You may think it’s unnecessary to have a dedicated app, since you can access all the same content through a browser, but the app comes with the unique ability to download videos for offline viewing. Like Amazon’s mobile apps, you can select from video quality settings of Good, Better, and Best when downloading content. One hour of video at the highest setting, which maxes out at 1080p, will use around 2.4 GB of storage space. The app is free, but you’ll need a Prime membership to access movies and shows.

Amazon just started a new promotion where you get a Free Echo Dot with the purchase of any Insignia or Toshiba Fire TV Edition television.
