With all of the great promos BlackBerry is having leading up to the holidays, many users are grabbing some awesome movies at steep discounts. A slew of titles were knocked down on Black Friday and BlackBerry is continuing their promotion with the $.99 Winter Sale. There are some great movies available on the cheap, making it easy for users to add some titles to their media library. 

I've personally never been one to buy too many new movies on my device as I don't really watch them frequently, but I did grab a few this past week. We're curious to know just how many of you actually buy movies from BlackBerry World though. I'm sure that many love the convenience of a few taps on the device to get your movie fix while others may go with alternative methods (whatever they may be).

Drop your vote in the poll below letting us know if you do or don't buy movies from BlackBerry World, then hit up the comments and let us know why you do what you do.

Yes I have a few movies

I wont "buy" but will download the free ones that are on offer. I had too many issues with Rovi on my PB and it left a sour taste in my mouth.

Just Me

I'm with you. Rovi is not the easiest to deal with. I still down understand why I can't download the movie on my laptop.

Need some pow.

mkye86

I keep downloading movies them and it's completely frustrating. The only reason why I do it is because I spent the $$ on a 64 GB Tablet for a reason! But I hate that I can't even put the movie on my phone and viceversa. It's a damn BlackBerry product! So lame and frustrating. It's honestly kind of a big waste of money. The good thing is I have the HDMI cable and put it to good use. But still. I hate not being able to not @ least have it on both devices. Can anyone tell me if Pavtube can strip and covert the file? The movies on Rovi are more expensive than any other digital store. And @ least with Amazon or Vudú I can get on more devices (BlackBerry not included)

It's a shame that BBRY uses these sub-par services. I've been using BB phone for nearly a decade now and as sad as it is to say, I've given BB10 an honest shot and I think I'm just not really interested in looking for work arounds and dealing with these type of services. Do you value your customer or not? I hate the ideal of becoming an iSheep but if I buy a movie or music from them on their devices, it's on every apple product any time. I complain about Apple prices but I have two 64GB PBs and they're as good as they're going to get. Looks like the real waste was spending the money on BBRY product. The only reason I didn't make the switch to iPhone (or Android) is because I received the Q10 at zero cost so I was willing to use it (just like I am willing to download free content from Rovi). But to spend money on it? Nah, I think I'll pass. I'm hoping that BBRY will be strong again in the future and will be happy to come back but I think my next move will be to the dark side. I just wish they had an iPhone with a physical keyboard!

Get that clip-on landscape keyboard with bluetooth for your iThing and you're set

Wasn't aware that there was a landscape BT keyboard. I'll have to check that out. Thanks. I hope that the move will be temporary too. BB had just a great thing going. BB10 sure has the potential.

You can get a 64 GB microSD from Amazon for $50! 50% off. You should be happy you can add more flash storage to your BlackBerry. iPhone users can't.

Really ? And people buy Apple Iphones anyway?

I brought this up with one iPhone user. His response was that a person doesn't need memory cards when they have the cloud.

alternator77

My sister in law said that until she ran out of the free space and had to pay for more. Not to mention the streaming charges if your already limited on space and in an airplane.

Posted from a phone....

mousii

Issues with that:
When you use the cloud you pay for the trafic (unless on a wi-fi but you are supposed to use you phone when you are on the move not at home)
Storing personal stuff on apple's servers? (or anybody else's servers for that matter of fact) that is not wise...

Definitely having memory cards is the way to go!

Even for $.99 - No . The DRM is too restrictive for music and movies.

Yep. Normally no way because of the DRM, but at $0.99 even if we just watch it once, I may as well.

Beat me too it. For. 99 I'll buy them all day.

Ooooh! That didn't even occur to me. I'm thinking about buying the Q10 and was assuming there'd be zero reason to buy a movie with that size screen...buuuuuut oh yeah, that totally works.

Plus you can 'PlayOn' if your have a smart TV or DLNA BlueRay Player...

I have the DLNA BlueRay from Sony, it works well. I can even have a phone call while streeming the movie over WiFi.

scottdpreece

I could never get my DLNA to work with my  Z10. Got it to work on my wifes old GS2. She know has iPhone.

No, I don't want to watch on a tiny screen.

I do have a micro-HDMI cable, though. Will the purchased movies play over that?

Download it to your media card (apple doesn’t have). Then just transfer the file to the PlayBook via Wireless connection over your local wifi. Again something apple can't do

I purchased a couple but now I realize I can't transfer them to my PlayBook or other media devices (PC, PS Vita, PS3), I'm thinking of not.
But for $0.99, can't be beat

Posted via CB10

mnhockeycoach99

You can transfer them to your PC (I download them to my Micro SD card and then move them to my PC), you just can't watch them on your PC. Still is pretty cool to have a handful of movies on my Z10 that I can connect to my HD tv and watch..

Posted via CB10

timboalogo

But can you then transfer them from the PC to a PlayBook and have then play on the PlayBook? I tried it and it wouldn't work die to rights issue. Still, I guess transferring then from a phone to a PC frees up space on phone, and is especially important since these 99cent movies have to be downloaded by 1 January 2014.

Hold up. So the movies don't play on the PC will they play on my Kindle fire. Are they just stuck in my BB only to play on the tv with a HDMI. smh. Here i thought i was getting a deal.

I bought Sky Fall for $0.99 last weekend and watched it on my TV through HDMI. I'd consider buying more if the price is right. Download was fairly quick & quality is very good.

byrdbrained

Where movies (and music) are available has very little to do with BlackBerry. It all about the content creators/owners and licenses (or PREVIOUS licenses) that they have in the individual countries. No need to get all ignorant about it. Why don't you go buy the movies on your iPhone or Android device?

zahiierQ10

No,we have youtube for download it :p

Posted via CB10

willcookson

I've never really considered it until the recent offers. Often they looked more expensive than buying a dvd. However, I have got the bug. Bought about 8 and rented another 6. All bar one was for 79p. Been very impressed with the quality and actually found much easier to use than online downloads. After the offers are over I suspect I would look at the blackberry library for rentals - especially if they have new releases out.

Posted via CB10

Note that DVDs are not HD. BlackBerry movies are usually cheaper than BluRays but yes, there are more expensive than DVDs.

axllebeer

For the prices yes. Also if you look these up in the PlayBook video store, most are in there for that same 99 cent price.

I buy but only off the video store on the PlayBook. I find the quality playing through an hdmi cable from the playbook is better than running off my Z10 phone. My TV is HD so I want the best image quality I can get.
Anyone else find a difference in quality between the two?

I've only bought 1 on my Z10 and haven't tried it out yet but I was curious about this as well. The quality from the PlayBook to a TV blows me away.

sjwpenney

While we're on the subject can Crackberry please put together a guide to watching movies on other devices whether they require hdmi cables/dongles/miracast/file conversion/hacks/whatever? I just don't believe that I'm limited to watching movies on my z10 or an HDMI connected tv. Can I connect to my large imac screen via hdmi for example? Don't have a tv so that is not an option.

konvajw

Agree. That would be nice and would certainly help educate me since I've not bought any movies before (until the free ones this week!)

I purchased a few, but don't think I will get anymore. You can not move them from your BlackBerry to PlayBook or computer.

Why isn't torrents a choice?

Posted via CB10

overzeer

It is a choice, just not necessarily a legal one. It is also a hassle. I usually rent movies for my kids/family and we can decide what we want to watch right on the spot. Saves time over torrents and money over renting other ways (e.g. my VOD service). Recent sale was also awesome, bought many. The quality is better than your typical torrent unless you are one of those downloading un-re-compressed distributions...

I have purchased many, and with this said it doubled. I am disappointed that titles purchased on my Z10 are not available on my playbook. A few did become a valuable on both but it's not the norm. All my titles purchased in blackberry world should be available on every device I use automatically. And why aren't the sales being promoted on the playbook bbw? That's how I truly want to watch my video's and find usefulness in myplaybok.

BB really screwed up by not having BB10 on the PlayBook. At the very least, the music and video stores should have been merged. I like the PB's larger screen but since the PB has no future, buying a movie for it from its separate dead-end ecosystem means it will be short-lived.

If anything I expect to pay less because they did not have to manufacture, deliver and store physical items. Server maintenance can't cost more than that

For the same price, you can get an HD ultraviolet copy through various storefronts (or get UV as an additional benefit to a physical purchase in many cases). For SD, the prices are generally too high.

Really I usually buy them on my PlayBook but during the 99 cent sale I went on & purchased a couple on my Q10. So I guess the answer to my vote is yes.

Posted via CB10

DaedalusIcarusHelios

I bought a few movies at 9.99 previously, and picked up some more on sale for .99. The problem is I can only watch them from my Z10. They won't work on my PlayBook (unless I buy them from that separate video store, which then can't play anywhere but on my PlayBook). They won't work from a computer. So it's a bit off-putting to be so tied to the platform when the platform isn't very pervasive. I've mostly been getting online movies from sites that utilize UltraViolet. That way I can watch them from my computer and multiple different devices.

BB should allow you to download/play movies from BB World on a computer with BB Link. I'd actually like it if BB World movies were UltraViolet. Or if there were no DRM so I could format-shift as I want and there's no concern over BB gong away some day.

I have purchased three of the 99 cent movies, plus one other a few months ago at full price. The 99 cent movies have to be downloaded by 1 January 2014, so that is a bit of a restriction. I usually download them onto my PlayBook, plug that into the TV via HDMI, and use my Z10 as a remote via Bridge.

Posted via CB10

timboalogo

I should add that it's disappointing nor to be able to download then on both the phone AND PlayBook. I'd purchased on PlayBook through the separate video store, they are not download able via BlackBerry World on my phone, and vis versa. I asked BlackBerry Twitter help about this and they just said, "not compatible ", which is B'S.

If only we could do it the other way around... i.e. us the Playbook as the pointer. That way I could also use it for Netflix and Crackle and the 0.99 movies. Great Promotion though. I picked up Skyfall and I will likely watch it with my HDMI cable

Jiggy1971

I won't buy them anymore. They got their last $12 from me. I got them to play on my computer and can only play them on my phone. I shouldn't have to tie up my phone to play a movie. It's a ridiculous system.

I know u can put it on up to 5 devices but if you load a leak or update your OS that uses your download. So I bought a movie on my Z10 went to a Q10 then a Z30 so I should have 2 more downloads right? Nope I installed my leaked 10.2.1 and I also did a leak on my Z10 thats my 5 downloads and I no longer have access to the move I paid 20$ for less than 8 months ago.

I purchased 15 movies from BB WORLD over the last 6 days. Never purchased one before that but at. 99 cents it was a breeze. I just have to figure out how you can share it on up to 5 devices as it states.

I'm using a Q10 and I don't have a HDMI cable for it so i'll have to say no.

This is tough (at the current offer price yes). Normally no just purely because of the download limit, if you could download it infinite times to infinite BB (doesn't have to be PC just BB is fine) then I would buy more.

I want to but the video quality is unknown. I.e. Am I buying SD or HD?

Bought a few only because they're 99 cents...not really convenient otherwise. I connect to my TV or pioneer receiver via hdmi out.

My only issue my pioneer receiver is processing the audio as "PCM". Not Dolby Digital...so only my front right and left speakers are playing..not sure about surround..but center channel is definitely off.

Would this be the movie file not having the proper audio encoded ? Or a setting in my phone?

Apple TV rentals and Netflix play dolby digital without any issues.

When Skyfall is just $0.99 in BlackBerry World how can you not buy movies?!?! Loving these new prices and the sound is stunning on my new Z30.

No because it's not available in my region

I bought some at $0.99 because although they're a "buy", they're really more like rentals in that:

1. I will probably watch them once.
2. They're not portable to another device, mostly BB10 to PlayBook and vice versa.

I'd like to , but the service is not available in France !

TrickyCase

I had never bought any films and only a couple of albums from BlackBerry World as it was never competitive... so I would usually download to my PC via somewhere like Amazon and copied them to my Z10...

But due to the winter sale I bought and watched Iron Man 3 last night.

I'm going to buy a few more on offer.

I hope that BlackBerry World can compete with the other providers so it can be my first choice for downloads.

I don't buy any digital download movies from anywhere so it's not a BlackBerry problem. Saying that, seeing these movies for 79p, I think I'm going to make a pig of myself!

I buy TV shows all the time. Even if I delete the movie from my phone, I can still download it for free as many times I want as long it's the same device. With that said, I would like to see blackberry create a media player that runs under blackberry link. This way Blackberry users can enjoy watching what ever they purchase on the Computer. Even Better, BlackBerry should create I media box that connects to your TV and you can watch movies and listen to music from blackberry world.

I'm in the same boat as many others. I do when they are .99. Wish they would also work on the PlayBook.

Same here. .99 is less than renting from RedBox so why not!?

I downloaded movies from B WORLD before and it didn't work out. It downloaded the movie and then wouldn't let me play it cause there were errors with the license download from Rovio. After numerous back and forth with Rovio customer support I gave up, got a refund and have never used it again

No, pointless when DRM prevents playing a movie I have paid for but can't play anywhere other than the tiny screen of the phone

Mirk

I bought one once, to try it out, then I found out you couldn’t play them on the computer, playbook, PS3, over DLNA… the only option is to play it on the phone or over the HDMI… then I found out if I reloaded my OS I couldn’t play the movie anymore without re-downloading it… then I found out I could only do that 5 times… I now no longer have the movie I bought and never could play it the way I wanted… wasted $20… never again.

I can't even watch them on my playbook if I download them, what's the point? Focus on the apps before you branch off into movies and songs. Lol just sayin.

Movies aren't meant for the big screen and surround sound. Not a phone.

BerryRipe

Normally no I don't purchase movies on my Q10 but maybe if I owned a larger screen BlackBerry I would however at the price of $0.99 I did purchase two movies. I have an HDMI cable so that I can watch it on the full size TV but the picture is still quite a bit smaller than the actual tv., maybe an option to change that but haven't messed with it yet.

CUmaliRN

I usually get movies for free. But willing to pay less than 4 bux. Any more, no thanks.

I don't have access to movies and music. I think this function is not available in my region, Costa Rica. Verrrrry sad!!!!!!!

Loc22

I would love to but I can't as it is not available not available in my region. If it is $ 0.99 per movie it will reduce piracy significantly & increase sales of BlackBerry by leaps & bounds.

This I can be confident.

No. But $0.99 is ok. Wouldn't pay more than that unless the quality is HD or close to it.

BlackBerry world movies are more expensive than the same movies on the iTunes store. I wanted to try it on BlackBerry world but couldn't justify the $2 price difference.

raydogsboarder

Bought them all... why? Because for $0.99 you can't go wrong and I'm always traveling and will just use my micro HDMI cable to watch on the TV anyways.

No. DRM is too restrictive ; I expect to play my movies over any compatible device - not just my phone.

Bold99Problems

Have rented in the past once, I believe the movie was Flight. And now with the winter sales, I've made 2 additional purchases. It's just a shame the file type isn't supported on my Samsung smart TV for wireless viewing (widi) whatever it's called. May have to start looking into Miracast TVs for future upgrades.

The prices are not reflective of market value. Digital copies costing more than hard copies? Why!?!? And we are talking about a few magnitudes more sometimes. Doesn't make sense. If the price was more in line with for example digital music vs hard copy then I would buy
