getting purchased blackberry world videos onto playbook

Hi there, 


I've recently purchased some videos from  blackberry world and it said I can download additional copies on as many as 5 devices.  I can't seem to download these onto my newly acquired playbook.  It seems that the playbook has a separate video store and doesn't recognize my blackberry world registration information.  Is it possible to somehow transfer/download/sideload these videos onto my playbook?  Is the playbook video store completely different and separate from blackberry world?  To be clear- currently the videos have only been downloaded to my Q10 and nowhere else.  I assume the 5 download limit applies to only blackberry products but I'd assume the playbook would qualify.  Any input?  Thanks!

are you using the same BBID on playbook that you are using on Q10?

Re: getting purchased blackberry world videos onto playbook

for the blackberry world I have a place to enter my blackberry ID.  This works and allows me to download videos without issue.  For the playbook video store I only have a "username"  field box.  If I enter my blackberry ID here, I get the error "user name not registered".  I can't download anything.  I'm only able to make a new account altogether, which will work to download content.


To me it seems like the video store on the playbook is a different store from the Blackberry 10 blackberry app world altogether.   Can anybody else download purchased video from the blackberry world store and then download it from the playbook video store without incurring additional charges?
