Default Downloading tv programmes/films

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I just wondered if anyone knows if it is possible to download tv programmes and films to a Blackberry Playbook to watch without wifi? It would be great if my son could watch cartoons etc on our flight next month. I have bought various ones from itunes before for him to watch on my iphone and just wondered if there was something similar I could get for the playbook?

Thanks in advance!

There is a video store on the PlayBook now. Check to see if it's available in your country. Make sure you have the latest OS loaded.

Hi, thanks got the message. I am in the UK, hopefully it should have the latest IS as I only bought it for him last week? Does the video store allow you to purchase things to download and watch offline?

Thanks again

Yes, you can download and watch later. Some items there is an option to rent for a limited time or purchase and keep.

I dont think it is available in the UK yet, can't seem to find it! If anyone knows of another way to download films/tv programmes to watch offline I would appreciate it x

Hum...my method, not very legal.

download from P2P, then via USB put in your playbook.

If a MOD deems this improper for this forum...you know what to do.
