    You can transfer them via USB from your main pc.

    To watch movies, just download the free app ROCKPLAYER

    I was kinda wondering the same thing. I transferred some HD video to my Xoom (my camcorder records in 1080) and tried watching them. Very choppy. What gives?

    For an app I would suggest Rockplayer. I've only had my Xoom for a day, but used Rockplayer for months on my Evo. So far it's working just as well. Plays anything you throw at it.

    Dropbox is an app you run on the pc that holds the majority of your content and and also on your mobile devices. It creates a folder you can drop things in. They are uploaded to cloud storage and you can access and download through dropbox on your mobile devices. 2GB limit.

    The aplication Tv Shows Stream has been updated to version 3.2 and fully support motorola Xoom now. Amazing. There is a free lite version for testing purposes limited to 12 tv shows, you all should try it.

    This movie download thing is a big negative to me. I am not very techie, all these steps recommended are great but I need one simple step. Do we think that will happen in time or should I go get an I pad to be sure?

    Solution to choppy video

    The video is sending it at 60 fps and the xoom can not handle that. It can only handle 30 fps.....You need a video convertor....I downloaded
    AVS4YOU on my computer it converts the video to 30 fps........You can down load a trial version that has a watermark on it to make sure it work.....After you transfer the movie to your computer use this software on the android setting to convert it to an MP4 at 30 fps.....Then drag and drop the converted file to your xoom.......Once you like it you can get a paid version for 39.00 a year.......It took me ages to figure it out with level 3 support at Motorola........

    Good Luck

    I think the op is frustrated there's no rental place like iTunes or Blockbuster.

    Ps that tv app mentioned earlier... Pic quality was not good and lots of shows were removed for copyright infringements.

    I returned my xoom due to the original ops concern as well as others.

    If your someone like me who has allot of DVDs, I highly recommended DVD catalyst. Very easy to use and all you have to do is copy to the movie folder on the xoom. Check it out Motorola Xoom Video

    If you wanted a tablet for movie/tv/music access you should have gone with an ipad. There have only been rumors of some form of a Music store being put in place by google at some time in the future....6 months from now at the earliest. By that time the xoom may be a little old and better tablets will be out. If you can get your money back I would try. If you are only going to be surfing the net and accessing emails...with the occasional handy app then the xoom is perfect for you.

    I use piratebay.com to get my movie torrents. I convert them using Fox Real video converter. Costs $35 bucks for the converter, but money well spent. I convert to mp4's and use the default Xoom player. QQplayer and Rockplayer works OK, too. You will need to download motohelper to allow your PC to recognize your Xoom for the video transfer. Good luck.

    That's my point. That's way too much trouble for 600 dollar device.

    iPad I can just rent the darn movie.

    It's very strange to me that android still doesn't have a media store with movie buys and rentals.

    Not just strange. Just flat out weird.
