I'm am Amazon Prime customer considering switching to Crunchyroll or VRG. But one feature of Amazon Video I find myself using more and more these days is the option to download a video for later viewing. I use a Kindle Fire (I'm aware I'll have to sideload the Crunchyroll app), and I have a lot of free time in a location where I don't have WiFi.

Do either the VRV or Crunchyroll apps allow downloading for later viewing? (If not, I'll have to reconsider switching.)

"Crunchyroll users can link their account through VRV to get access to offline viewing for Crunchyroll shows on VRV."

VRV does, but I'm not sure if a version that can be sideloaded and still work on your Fire will have that functionality.

Sweet. That's definitely worth looking into.

Sorry to resurrect a dead thread, but I too have this issue. Amazon Prime recently pulled Kara no Kyoukai, and I'd like to download it for offline viewing, and I was wondering:

If I buy my Crunchyroll Premium through VRV, but I don't get VRV Premium, can I still download to watch offline?

(I ask, since I literally have no interest in anything else on VRV, but Crunchyroll, and I'd rather not pay for content I'm not going to watch.)

You don't need a VRV subscription. If you get a CR subscription and link the account to VRV then you can download CR content using the VRV app.
