    I though after upgrading to 3.1 we will have movie tab in android market to rent or buy. I have seen it in Motorola Xoom. Is this only for Motorola or we will eventually see in the market.:confused:

    After I updated, there was a new app called videos. That app gave me the opportunity to rent movies through the Market.

    Yup rentals are under the new video app. Check out DVD catalyst for ripping your movies. I've had so much more fun with mine now that I can put movies on it.

    What does DVD Catalyst have to do with the movie rentals?

    Actually, the Videos app lets you rent thru the Browser, not via the Market App.
    Movies are around 2.99 to 3.99 and you normally have 30 days in which to start watching, and 24 hours to finish after you start.

    Info about this is hard to find on the tablet but this page tells all:
    Movies - Android Market Help

    Normally it will stream, but you can "pin" a movie so that it downloads and you can view
    it off line.
