Kindle Fire Netflix warning - Caveat Emptor

    "Gareth here, from the Amazon Kindle Support team.

    I am sorry that we were unable to resolve your issue.

    As stated during our call, Kindles unfortunately do not support NetFlix outside of the United Kingdom. "

    Be aware that, according to Amazon, they will not permit Irish devices to download the NetFlix app. After contacting Netflix, they do not see a good reason for this as NetFlix is licensed within Ireland.

    I asked Amazon rep to escalate and was told 'no'.

    Anyone know a way around this?

    I'm in the same boat. I've decided to return it as I can't use skype or skygo on it either.

    I changed the address on my kindle fire to my brothers in London and have been using the Netflix app for the last couple of months with no problems
