I think this is mostly a FireTV question. Has anyone figured out a way to use the in-app download option to save content to play offline? Given how buggy UConnect USB and DVD/Bluray are I'm looking for alternatives as I plan a long trip through an area where I know service is not sufficient to stream. I'm not looking for guidance on how to rip/download content to USB/Bluray. I want to try to use the built in FireTV before resorting to using another device where I know the official apps support download (e.g., a tablet or phone with HDMI out support)
- Prime Video seems to work in that I can download a movie to the FireTV (appx 10GB per FireTV device shared for apps and downloaded content) but most of my content is not in the Amazon ecosystem.
- By using low quality download setting (seems fine for the rear screens) + screen mirroring I have room for 4-6 movies total with different titles downloaded to each FireTV device)
- Netflix and Disney+ do not seem to work in that the FireTV app does not have the download option. My suspicion is that this is what happens when you take a product like FireTV intended for stationary/at-home use and put it into a van.
