How do I play BB World movies on Playbook?

I have purchased movies from BBworld on my Z10 and can watch them on my Z10. How can I watch them on my Playbook?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

 

Best regards,

Bill

Thanks for the answer.

My PB does not have Video Store app but it does have music store, accesories store and BB World but no Video Store.

Is there a Video Store app that I can download or a similiar app to download movies to PB?

 

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

Bill

On the Playbook you don't get the movies from BBWorld. There is a separate Video Store app powered by Rovio. It's not a downloadable app. It came preinstalled with my Playbook. If it's missing then the only way to add it is to reinstall the OS. However, it could be location dependent. Where are you located?

I got the PB used and it has a video icon that has files but no video store. I setup the BB Rovio account at BB but there is not a place to launch it on PB. Or do I need to add something?

I have three Playbook and all three have the video store icon. It looks like a bag with a strip of film on it.

If it's not in a folder or on the second page then you'd have to reload the OS in order to bring it back.

Does your Playbook have the pre-installed wallpapers folder in the Pictures folder?

No, just a folder with woodtone background.
