How do I download movies to my Blackberry Playbook?

We just got a playbook for Christmas and I have no idea where to start when it comes to putting a couple of movies on it for our children. I got the 32 GB so that I would have the space to do this - but I don't know how. I have read some posts about using iTunes on the playbook...is this possible? I have iTunes on my PC and iPod - so can I somehow transfer songs? I am also wondering if anyone had heard any word about a Playbook app for Netflix or Skype? Thanks!

you have to remove DRM form itunes content first.


then you can sync via desktop manager in a few ways.

Re: How do I download movies to my Blackberry Playbook?

For  movies if you already have the DVD...I installed a DVD ripper on my PC (such as FoxReal). This takes hours to convert a DVD so I leave it running overnight. The next morning I just copy the movie onto the Playback (takes a few minutes) and I've got something to watch that day. Even on the 16GB you can put a few movies on.  Easy and great quality.  But make sure you've got a decent set of headphones....some cheap one's seem to be too quiet to cope with background noise in the train/car.
