    Watching a purchased video on an Android tablet (Hudl2)?

    Watching a purchased video on an Android tablet (Hudl2)? 17th Jun 17 at 3:20 PM
    Using my laptop, I've purchased a video on Amazon.co.uk

    It wasn't available as a DVD/Bluray, so I bought it as a digital copy, for viewing online.

    I can watch it on my laptop, but, when I log onto Amazon using my Android tablet (it's a Hudl2), and try to watch it, I'm taken to a page that tells me to install Amazon Appstore.

    I've done that (there are two Appstore icons, see below, on the desktop), but when I again try to watch the video, it takes me back to the same "install Amazon Appstore" page
    Advice please.
    My job is Top Secret. Even I don't know what I'm doing.

    Amount I have so far denied the BBC - £1161

    You need to install it:

    Launch Amazon Appstore from Notifications or Downloads, tap Install when prompted, and then sign in with your Amazon account email address and password.

    Install Amazon Video

    Tap the Install button for Amazon Video. Open Amazon Video when installation is complete.

    you may also have to tick the install from ' unknown sources' in the security settings on the Hudl

    This allows you to install from a source other than the Google Play Store!

    There's:-

    Amazon Prime Video - the button says "View".

    OR

    Amazon for Tablets - the button says "Get".
