I have purchased a movie on my BlackBerry Z10 that I want to watch on my PlayBook. There is an option to share the movie but I don't seem able to "port" it over. Has anyone had any experience with this issue? Thanks

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Thanks for the question.
Due to licensing restrictions the movie can only be watched on the BlackBerry smartphone/tablet that it was purchased on.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Let me say first of all that I am a huge BlackBerry fan, who happens to live in Waterloo, Ontario. On this issue I don't understand BB's direction. I have a "Video Store" app on my PlayBook but can't access movies because I am outside the US. The option of buying movies and copying them to the PlayBook isn't much fun if the original disks have DRM protection. So one of the things that I truly struggle with is getting movies onto my PlayBook so that I can watch them traveling (on a plane). So now BB has upgraded BlackBerry World and has what a appears to be a decent selection of movies for my Z10 but the problem here is I would never think of watching a movie on the Z10 because of the screen size. Is it possible that I could get a micro HDMI cable and play the movie on the Z10 and watch it on the PlayBook? Just saying it sounds like a convoluted work around. Maybe its me and I am missing something.
Thanks for the help.

This is utterly ridiculous!!! Why tell us we can download on up to FIVE devices if we can only use it on a Blackberry device?! Once we purchase it we should have access to download it onto all of our devices (not just Blackberry). We are PAYING MONEY FOR IT, SO IT'S LEGALLY OURS! Why spend $20 for something we can only watch from ONE DEVICE. Who has FIVE BlackBerry devices?! I only fell into this trap with the 99cent winter sale going on. But BB is NEVER going to get me to pay full price for something I can't watch from my laptop. Blackberry you are sorely missing out on business if you think this is how you can treat customers and "selling" media. Jeez...epic fail!
If anyone has a work around of any kind I'm all ears! Thanks!
