Android users have been able to stream content from Amazon's Prime Instant Video for a while now, but only to their phones. However, starting today, Prime subscribers in the US, UK and Germany can access Amazon's extensive content archives from their Android tablets as well. Users will also be able to launch the mobile Instant Video webpage and watch shows directly from there.

Unfortunately, actually getting Prime onto your tablet is going to be a hassle. You'll have to first install the Amazon Appstore, then turn off the "don't install from unknown sources" option in the tablet's security menu and then launch the Appstore. Once you've done that, congratulations! You're halfway there. Next you'll need to download, install, and launch the separate Prime Instant Video app. Of course, if this all seems like too much hassle, you can always access Instant Video on your (Android-based) Fire tablet.
