Downloading movies

Hi everyone, after a lot of sole searching I final bought a blackberry playbook.  What I want to know is how I can download movies.


I am not very technically when it comes to this sort of thing and I have never had the need to down load a movie.


So if someone can give me simply instructions for a UK user it would be very helpful.


If there is an app that I can use to download recent movies that would be good, but a site that I could use that is legal (don't want to use any sites that are not legal).


Hope someone can help me with this.

Re: Downloading movies

RIM does have a Video Store app, but I believe it only works in the US and Canada right now. Accordingly, an alternative option would be to use a service such as iTunes or LOVEFiLM. In this case, you would download the movie to your computer, then copy it over to your PlayBook. Some DVDs also include a digital copy of the movie which can be copied over to the PlayBook as well.

Unfortunately, I don't live in the UK, so I'm not sure what else to try, but hopefully others will have some more suggestions. Smiley Happy
