According to Amazon Prime Video Usage Rules, “For downloaded videos, you'll typically have 30 days to begin watching the video after you download it and once you start watching it, you'll typically have 48 hours to finish watching it.” In other words, after 30 days these downloaded videos will not be available for viewing whether you have watched them or not.

However, if you do not renew your subscription after it expires, you will not be able to continue watching these videos, regardless of whether the downloaded videos are still within 30 days or not, unless you purchase that video title or renew your subscription.
