How can I get videos, movies, TV shows on my PB in the UK?
I have now had my Playbook for over a year.
The BB Video Store only seems available in the US and Canada, also it seems expensive when compared to Google, Apple, and Amazon.
I had started ripping my DVDs onto my Playbook, but frankly in this day and age that is absurd.
Has anyone found somewhere to download LEGALLY movies and Tv shows? The biggest problem I have with my Playbook is a lack of content which results in me not using it.
Would appreciate your thoughts

When I've looked into this - the best I've been able to come up with as options are either setting up a proxy for a pay service from the US (Amazon or BB Store) or hopefully Blinkbox will have an app out soon (when I last asked them they were hoping to have the android app out before Christmas with a BB one to follow after).
Or you set up a streaming service from your PC and use your PC to download (Plex etc)

Going back to your original message - while ripping dvd's can be tedious, I guess you could do it overnight and just let it run in your absence. And, of course, your LEGAL limitation shows a major hangup - distributors just don't realize what an untapped market is out there if they would only provide content in more usable forms at a fair price!
Yes - legally is a key issue. I know that there are ways to download almost any TV episode and movie out there illegally. But I don't want to break the law.
Crackle - Just had a look on my PC and it may well work. But the content (maybe it's differen in the UK) seems hilariously bad. I'll have a closer look at home, but it seems like a repository of B/C grade films and tv shows.
