I'm a regular user of the Amazon Video app and so I will try and answer

The app itself is free. How much free content you get depends on whether
you're a member of Amazon Prime. If you're a Prime member, Amazon
provides a good deal of free content from its video library. If you're
not a Prime member, I don't believe the app offers anything in the way
of free content. In either case, Amazon has a selection of movies and TV
shows that you can purchase or rent.

> >They said you can buy movies as well.
> >Can you purchase tv shows?
> Yes. You can either purchase individual episodes or entire seasons.
> >I would imagine that this would be pretty expensive, though?
It depends on the movie or TV show. Some seasons might only cost $15-20,
some might be more expensive. You should visit Amazon's site and look at
prices for Instant Video, which is what you're looking for when it comes
to the app. Unfortunately, you can't use the app itself to purchase
content, although you can use it to search for it.
> >And I would imagine all that video would take up a lot of room?
> Does anything you purchase, have to stay on your device?
All shows and movies can be streamed and so they won't take up any extra
space. They can be downloaded for offline listening/viewing but this
isn't the default.
> >And of course, is this app pretty accessible?
It is quite accessible. The only issue you'll have a problem with is
their list of premium channels for renting content. Instead of reading
the name of the channel, VoiceOver just says "opens the landing view."
