Why can I only rent movies on my Kindle Fire?

I am trying to purchase a movie on my Kindle Fire HD, but it will only allow me to rent it, which I don't want to do. I have my amazon account on here, with a valid card, and I bought one movie before. Do they not let you buy specific movies? How come I can't buy any?

Two reasons I can think of.

1: Amazon only has rental rights for that film.

2. Tablet and such devices are only eligibly for streaming. You need a PC with an HDD to "buy" and download a movie.

Have you tried to get those movies to your Amazon account using your computer first? Purchased movies will then automatically appear on your Kindle Fire, as it's also registered to the same Amazon account:

Hope that helps.
