Kindle Fire HD is perfect for browsing, playing, reading, and shopping on-the-go. What’s more, it comes with some special feature like Exclusive Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers for immersive, virtual surround sound, World's first tablet with dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi for 40% faster downloads and streaming (compared to iPad 3), free unlimited cloud storage for all your Amazon content. As more and more people ordered or got their new Kindle Fire HD, some movie playback issues occurred.
I have purchased (via Amazon) many DVDs (mostly opera and Blu-ray format). What options (if any) do I have for viewing these on the newly announced Kindle Fire HD 8.9"? I'm assuming "cloud" access (without a physical DVD player). Would there be a possibility of an "add on" player that would permit playback from a physical DVD?
In fact, the Kindle Fire HD doesn't have a Blu-ray or DVD drive, it’s impossible to play DVDs/BDs on Kindle Fire HD directly.
