    Android Market Movies, Streamed or Downloaded?

    As the title asks, are the rented movies downloaded or streamedm?

    I would like to know because I would like to watch the movies while I'm on a plane, per say, where I have no internet connection.

    Thank You

    They are downloaded and have time to watch parameters. I rhink i read 30 days from download and 24 hours frrom when you start to view. Titles seem like they stole my old vhs tapes. Nothing really current.

    I had read somewhere that you needed to "pin"the movie to download and view. How does that work? I also do not see a movie viewer AP on my 3.1. Will this start when I start a video?

    I think they are streamed by default. If you want to watch a movie when you know you will be offline you can pin the movie. This will download it in the background for later offline viewing. Not sure how this effects the 30 day rental and 24 hour.viewing but I'm sure they have it so the movie is only valid for those time frames even when downloaded.

    I'm curious to see the quality because they said the download is only between 2 and 4 gigs.

    It gives you the option to watch or download when you rent. Still going the dvdcat route for plane trips ect. Cheaper and all. (Spent all my funds on the Xoom.)

    I borrow new DVDs from my local library, convert them which takes very little time and save them on my external hard drive. I keep one or two on my xoom, after I watch one I delete it from the xoom but still have it on my hard drive.I have converted all my home movies as well
