    A week or so ago, I saw a commercial on TV that mentioned that you can DL movies from the Android Market. Sounded quite odd at the time.

    So...

    Last night, I saw the same TV commercial for an Android Tablet, and the voice over mentioned that you can "watch movies from the Android Market." I did a post double-take and I swear they said movies from the Android Market and not applications from the AM that lets you watch movies.

    Anyone here see that and is it misleading?

    Okay, I think I may look like an dumbass for this, but I'm a little confused.

    If you go to https://market.android.com/movies you can rent movies. From the tiny bit of research I did (>5 min.) it would appear that the app is on Honeycomb and will arrive later for Froyo. So, you seem to need and app, but you are actually getting them from the Market directly, so I guess it's not misleading, but without the app I think you are stuch with watching in browser only. Maybe you can do the same thing with the Market movies you can do with ones from Amazon Unbox and just move them over to your phone.

    I stand corrected. Apparently, you can.

    EDIT: The prices seem lower via Android compared to iTunes.
