    I can see books/apps/movies for sale in the android market---how about TV shows (i.e. The Office, 30 Rock)? I recently purchased my Acer Iconia A500 and now I'd like to put some episodes of TV shows on it for a trip.

    I guess I was expecting to see the market laid out like the itunes store--or am I looking in the wrong place?

    Where can I get that done?

    I haven't seen any TV shows on the market. Also those movies are just being rented by you. You aren't actually purchasing them to keep and download onto your tab.
  5. You might try viewing them through your browser. I use dolphin hd and go to
    Free tv online. It does a fairly decent job and has both tv shows and movies. The drawback is you need access to wifi. Also checkout Amazon video. Both streaming and downloads available.

    I did notice on amazon's download site that it states you can only download the video(s) to a windows pc---and you can't transfer/use them on a portable device....which I'm assuming is what the tablet is...correct?
