    I'm looking for alternatives to watch/rent TV/movies. Is it possible to use iTunes to rent and then copy files to PB to watch? Anyone successfully do it or does Apple have DRM employed?

    If you're in the US or other covered areas, try Amazon prime.

    Thanks. I'll look into that one.

    Has anyone tried buying shows from iTunes and see if they can be transferred to the PB and viewed OK? I cannot be the only one who has thought of doing this??

    Amazon purchases can't be directly downloaded to the Playbook. Streaming is also somewhat problematic. You may want to do a search for recent threads on it.

    But I would also love to know if anyone has successfully managed a work around for either Amazon or iTunes downloads.

    Look for the pb tv thread. You wouldn't need the app as it is a sideload if you don't want to do that. The sites are listed.

    Last time I checked (this week), service was back to normal.

    I just joined 1channel.ch and while I saw the dvx player I didn't see the flash player. Is that going to be a problem? And it seemed to be looking for a specific flash plugin - Flow-something?

    So no one has tried to load iTunes downloaded videos?

    UPDATE - I just tried it and even though the file is .m4v it won't play. PB says "file type isn't supported". So I guess DRM is stopping it. Lovely. Where do you get 1st run movies legally?

    If you're in Canada, try Rogers Anywhere (formerly Rogers On Demand). Movies can be rented and streamed. TV programs streamed and are free.

    I have found using AnyDvD software allows you to put any movie you want on it. This saves you when your out at say work and want to watch a movie.

    You don't have to join to watch and as I said use the putlocker links. No divx needed with putlocker links and no registration needed to watch.

    Get PlayOn as that allows you to watch Netflix Hulu and lots of other online streams on your playbook. Down side is that you need your computer on for it to the work.

    If my pc had a screen smaller than 7 inches that would be convenient. But since its bigger I might as well use the laptop. :

    I still like using projectfreetv. Like others have suggested putlocker seems to stream the best. Also if you have a tv tuner hooked up to a pc a home you can set up Orb for free live streaming. The app is free in AppWorld.

    I have AnyDvd but I thought it was for making backup copies of my DVDs. How are you using the software to view downloaded or streamed movies?

    I just tried 1channel.ch and it worked well. I connected my playbook to my tv and streamed it using the putnick link or what ever its called.

    Yup putlocker and sockshare links run movies very well on the playbook. Bets thing is you don't have to register to stream.

    I tried to sign up for the service and now it does not recognizes my login info. I think is a scam the site access. Just to be careful I will contact my credit card.
