    I need advice regarding Google play.
    Have only used it to download apps so far
    But was looking at the movies and there are 2 or 3 I am interested in.

    I just wondered how the rent and buy works
    Do you have a limited time if you rent?

    If you buy are they actually yours?
    If I download a movie to my nexus 7 can I move it to my PC to save and rewatch at a later date?
    Thanks

    Here's how it works ... if you rent a movie or TV show from the play store, you have a limited time to watch it. Here's what Google says ...

    Thanks for a very clear answer
    Was hoping it worked similar to my kindle books to buy, then pick up where you left off on any PC gadget.
    Is there a similar site that would work better for me, to save bought movies on PC and add to my nexus 7 ?

    can ChromeCast play any 'pinned' (offline) movies from a Nexus 10 maybe? i'd like to watch my library on my large HDTV but my internet is too slow to properly stream them
