There is a work around for this issue but you need WiFi access on board or you must do it before you depart. It requires the Chrome browser which is not available on the Amazon app store. Search Google for 'download Google chrome apk' and use a third party site to download the apk. Once downloaded, touch it in the Silk download screen to install.

Then browse to southwestwifi.com in Chrome and you should be able to watch any movie or live tv right in the browser.
