Amazon Prime Video is undoubtedly one of the best services to stream and download movies and TV shows to your iPhone. If you're trying to buy or rent a movie or show in one of Amazon's iOS apps, you'll find that there's no obvious way to do it. No buttons, no links, nada. What is there and how can you buy and rent content from Amazon on your iOS device?
There is no official answer to why you can not buy and rent movies and TV shows in the Amazon Prime Video or Amazon Shopping apps, but it's clear what it's about. All purchases of digital content in iOS apps are cut by 30 percent by Apple. Instead of dealing with the loss of profits, Amazon requires users to shop outside the iOS apps.
But just because you can not buy or rent digital content from Amazon apps does not mean you need to use a computer – you can continue to buy and rent Amazon digital products on your iPhone, not your apps ,
Step 1: Sign in to Safari on Amazon

Step 2: Find The Movie Or Show You Want To Watch  Look for the registration for the title you want to buy or rent. When Amazon wears it as a digital video, you will see purchase and / or rental options on the movie page. Just tap the buy option you want to continue.

First, you can not watch your movies movie in your web browser. When you tap View Now on the movie or TV show page, the Amazon Prime Video app launches automatically.
