    You can't.

    Online stores that sell movies include DRM on them that prevents you from watching them on your tablet.

    The best way is to just buy your movies in physical format, such as DVD, and convert them to the proper format for your tablet.

    This guide on how to put movies on the Nexus 7 (just select your Acer model where it tells you to select Nexus 7) might help:

    Thanks for your reply, but I was told by the guy in the shop that you could buy them in an Mp4 format online - is that not right?
    I have been able to copy a few straight from my external hard-drive via the laptop - just literally drag and copy them.... so if i just buy in a physical format and copy them over too?

    I'm not sure about sites in Ireland, but the movie studios do not like their movies to be sold in a digital file format unless there is some form of DRM on it. Stores like Amazon, iTunes, Google Video all have some form of DRM on their videos that prevents them from just being used without some form of activation system that ties the video file to someones name or device.

    There are of course plenty of online locations that offer pirated movies in MP4 format, with many of them even going as far as selling them either per file or by subscription, making people believe the movie is not a pirated copy, but if you use those sites, regardless of if you pay for the video or not, its still a pirated copy. One instant give-away on those sites is that they offer movies that are still in theaters.

    Thee are several sites where you can download legal movies. Most of them are classics and the kids may even get an education. Here is a small list with hundreds of films.

    500 Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns & More | Open Culture

    Crackle - Watch Movies Online, Free TV Shows, & Original Online Series

    Movies : Free Movies : Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

    Watch and Download Free Movies

    Some of the moves at these sites are quite good by may need to be downloaded from your PC using a downloader app then copied to your tablet.
