Kindle Fire Netflix Streaming

I am looking at getting a Kindle Fire but want to know if it will work with streaming services such Netflix and Hulu. Does anyone have any input on this. After looking around, I learned — Hi, Susan, think about it – Amazon is reported to loose up to $50 on each Kindle Fire in hope to make that back and then some on selling you movies and apps. Would you think Amazon will allow their movie streaming competitors into their subsidized device? Of course not. Also, here's other facts about Kindle Fire you might want to consider: – Kindle Fire doesn't have microSD slot that, for example, Nook Color has thus it is stuck with 6 GB usable internal storage unlike Nook Color that can get up to 32 GB card in. Kindles are made to be almost like a "dumb terminal" of the past to make sure you're tied up to Amazon's storage on the web (for which you need Wi-Fi connection to get to) and you can only store content you get from Amazon there, not other files. Quoting Amazon on Kindle Fire: "Free cloud storage for all Amazon content". Get it, Amazon content? – The stats of how long the battery can last (Kindle Fire theory is 7. 5 hours) are taken with Wi-Fi off. It will last only about 3 hours if you use it to access content from their Cloud storage over Wi-Fi. – Amazon can spy on your web activity through their new cloud-integrated web browser of Kindle Fire. – VERY IMPORTANT lack of microSD slot means that if you decide to root your Kindle Fire, youll have to root the actual device thus there will be no coming back. On Nook Color, you can make it boot from a rooted microSD card and if you want to get back to the original Nook you can just take out the card and reboot. – Kindle Fire doesn't have a camera. – Kindle Fire has about 70% less usable screen area than iPad2. – Kindle doesn't support eBooks in ePub format that is the most used format in the world. – Kindle app store contains only Amazon approved apps and it does not include (and will not include) Netflix app that iPad has and Nook Color is getting thus again you're stuck with Amazon content only. – Amazon confirmed that you cannot download/stream anything to Kindle Fire when traveling outside US. – Amazon says it will review every app in its Appstore for Fire compatibility, as part of an automated process. Rejected apps will include those that rely on a gyroscope, camera, WAN module, Bluetooth, microphone, GPS, or micro SD. Apps are also forbidden from using Google's Mobile Services (and in-app billing), which, if included, will have to be "gracefully" removed. In terms of actual content, Amazon has outlawed all apps that change the tablet's UI in any way (including theme- or wallpaper-based tools), as well as any that demand root access. – I'd recommend waiting for Nook Color 2 that is rumored to be released by Barnes & Noble shortly.

    Netflix doesnt have an app for it though Amazon has said Netflix is enthusiastic about adding an Application which you would sooner or later be able to see. Til now Amazon has its own video streaming to make you able to see almost 100k+ popular movies. Guessing amazon wants the lowest price for a tablet.
