Sure, you could fill you Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD (7’’/8.9’’) with movies from Amazon Instant Video for $9.99 - $14.99 per film. However, if you have already spent a lot of money in movies and TV episodes from Apple iTunes store, you could save some cash and move the video stuff from iTunes to your Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD (7’’/8.9’’).

Problem is, all the movies and TV episodes in Apple iTunes store are encoded with the M4V files which are protected by using Apple’s FairPlay DRM copy protection, and the Amazon Kindle Fire is not authorized. To play your iTunes video purchases on the Kindle Fire, you will need to a DRM removal software to strip the FairPlay DRM protection from your iTunes video purchases firstly.
