    So, I was digging through all the various apps and came across Watch. Apparently this is HTC's video player and store all-in-one.

    Well, to my surprise, there was actually a video there. It showed The Green Hornet. I figured HTC was just trying to sell me a movie I didn't want, then I noticed a couple of things. First, it says this in bold letters:

    Second, in the lower right, it says "Preloaded Movie". Since it defaults to the "Downladed" tab on the bottom, it seems to be there. I then tapped the "Library" button in the top right and it is indeed listed as a downloaded movie. It also give a file size of 1811 MB. If you tap the menu button, it does give the option to "Delete Downloads", so there's that.

    I dug around the SD card and didn't see it there. Since I'm not rooted yet, I was wondering if this is what's taking up a good chunk of space in the internal memory?

    I also have the movie. Just you and me I guess lol. When the evo 3d was released it came with the green hornet 3d for free. Now though, if you try to watch it, you get an error that the promotion is over :(

    We can try asking for a free copy or a coupon of some sort. If they aren't so generous then at least you can delete it.

    Yeah, I was gonna come back and say the same thing. Just got to work and all....

    Anyway, I got the promotion has ended thing as well, so I just deleted it. Like Hollaback12786 said, it was on the SD Card. I guess I just overlooked it before. I did check the amount of storage space before and after deletion and the free space was gained on the card.

    Just as well, though. The 3D stuff kinda gives me a headache! :p

    I suppose I'll also delete it. I wonder why some people didn't get the movie though.
