"It's that guy again! Wasn't he on...uhm...what was that show again?"

But it will take you a few minutes, maybe hours. Now if you have an Amazon device and Amazon Instant Video, it will just take you a few seconds.

Amazon Prime Instant Video now has support for Android tablets

It's been months since the Amazon Prime Instant Video app was launched for most platforms and devices, with one big exception. It did not have any official app for Android tablets, despite being present on Android smartphones, iOS devices, and of course Amazon's own Fire tablets and Fire phones.
