There is a new PBS video app for Kindle Fire that will be especially appealing to"Downton Abbey" fans. Previously available only for the iPhone or iPad, now Kindle Fire users can enjoy this visually appealing application from the Public Broadcasting System. “Downton Abbey” fans will find this an entertaining portal to all the season 3 episodes of "Downton Abby" on Masterpiece Theater along with other favorite PBS programs.
There are many popular PBS programs included in the list of videos on the PBS Kindle Fire app, and there are a variety of categories. One noticeably missing category is the collection of British comedies that PBS viewers have long come to associate with the network. Some of the videos featured on the PBS app do expire, and they label them when they are close to being removed.
For those who have heard friends and co-workers discussing “Downton Abbey” with enthusiasm, you may have tried to watch it and wondered what the big deal is. As with most British television programs, Americans normally cannot fully enjoy and understand the show by just watching one episode. The British plot lines are usually more subtle and complex, and the format of “Downton Abbey” makes that even more so. The PBS video app for Kindle Fire will allow you to easily watch these past episodes from season 3 with just two clicks from the carousel of books and apps on your Kindle Fire.
The PBS app for Kindle Fire is free in the Amazon Store on your Kindle Fire. To download, choose apps in the menu, then the store. In the search box, type “PBS,” and then follow the normal downloading instructions. It loads quickly, and there are no lengthy registrations or forms to fill out.
