    App for downloading shows/movies to watch while offline?

    Hi All. Can anyone recommend/suggest a site and how I go about downloading tv shows/movies to watch while offline? I have netflix to watch streaming, but I would like to download things for when on a plane, have no connection, etc. Thank you!

    The Google freely provided "Videos" app does this (available from the market if not already installed). You purchase a video (Movie, TV Show, etc) and can "pin" it your Thrive for offline use. You can also use DVD Catalyst to rip your purchased DVDs for copying to the Thrive for offline use. Does this answer your question(s)? Is it sufficient for your intended use(s)?

    My sister uses droid tv. It's a subscription plan, but she loves it.

    You probably figured this out by now because it has been a while since you posted this question. But I just was going through this problem for the first time today. I contactd Android Market and Google called me back, imagine that. They are currently having problems with the Andriod Market movie rental. I got a 925 error which says that it can't fetch the license for their movies. They said that they are working on it. this message is written on March 4th, 2012, just so future readers may know.
    To pin a movie though, you must first pay the rental. Then go to the videos app on your droid phone and hit the menu button on the bottom left. From there press manage offline. Then there will be a pin button that appears just below the movie credits and right of where it says "expires in 30 days". Press on that button and then press the done button on the bottom right. Apparently that completes the action. It can take up to nintey minutes for it to download using the internet and longer using the wireless connection of the phone. And it is uses a lot of your data downloading like that. I hope that this will help anyone who is as confused as I was about this. Dale
