I go into my Amazon on my laptop, the only possible way I know to access the necessary storage capacity, and there is no option for me to download the episodes. If I look on my phone or tablet I get the option to download the episodes, but there is no way there would be enough memory for what would be required. It makes no sense other than it being yet another way to control access because you can only access the download on devices with limited storage capacity and therefore never get all of it.

    Please tell me where I am wrong with this?

    There have been...as far as I know, fewer than 10 or so Kindle books that were taken away. In what way is that at all significant? As for buying video, the few I've bought, I downloaded to my computer so that's in no way 'rented'.

    As to Looney's comment, streaming is a separate license from WB which is why it's not streaming any longer. Completely separate from buying it.

    I still have access to everything I purchased, so that means Amazon still has the digital library they just aren't selling it anymore or allowing people who don't own it to stream it. I have no idea how it works, but I can still watch what I purchased through them.

    I'm curious too.
    - Is this a statement or a question?
    - Do You speak to Looney, to me or to all around here?

    Looney,
    why hassle around with amazon streaming, when the whole B5 universe is ready on dvd ($91,10) at amazon.com?

    That is very strange that I missed that when I read over this page this morning looking for a post exactly like that.

    I was also going to claim you made a mistake because I just watched one Tuesday, but then I realized that the episodes I have been watching were actually from seasons I bought from Amazon. I went to watch a Season 4 episode - RUMORS, BARGAINS, AND LIES -, a season I don't yet own through Amazon, and it said I had to buy it. So the reason I didn't realize it ended in January is because I was watching episodes I already purchased. LOL

    VERY BAD NEWS is that I looked at the rest of the Season 4 episodes listed and there are some that say "UNAVAILABLE." SAY WHAT?!?!?!?!?!

    (PLEASE SOMEONE DOUBLE CHECK ME ON THIS. I'VE CHECKED THROUGH MULTIPLE DEVICES, BUT HOPEFULLY IT IS JUST A TECHNICAL ISSUE.)
