Only from Amazon--that was my point. On Roku you have the choice to rent and/or purchase the latest titles available to rent or purchase on any media from multiple sources, including Amazon, VUDU, M-GO, Blockbuster, Google Play Video, etc. On Fire TV you can only rent or buy from Amazon Instant Video.
Moreover Amazon Instant Video does not give you access to the UltraViolet or Disney Movies Anywhere cloud video lockers. I own Prometheus
(UV) and Wreck-It Ralph
(Disney). I can watch Wreck-It Ralph
on any device which has a VUDU, Google Play or iTunes app (I was wrong about ATV; you can play your Disney Movies Anywhere titles on it, though not UV); I can watch Prometheus
on any device which has a VUDU, Flixster, Target Ticket, M-GO or CinemaNow app as well as on some other services. I can't watch either on Fire TV without buying or renting them from Amazon Instant Video and if I buy a title from AIV I can only watch it on devices with AIV apps.
