On Tuesday, Amazon.com announced that Prime subscribers will now be able to download television shows and movies via its streaming service to watch while offline on pretty much all mobile devices—something rival Netflix has failed to do. Offline viewing has actually been available on the Kindle Fire since its debut in 2013, but now the service will be expanded to include streaming on iOS and Android platforms at no additional charge. – Abigail Tracy, Forbes
