    I have searched everywhere on how to do this but I can't find it anywhere. I keep reading you can download purchased movies to watch offline. I can't find out how/where to do this.

    That's the short story, the long story is I want to be able to download purchased movies so I can watch them on my iPad on a flight out to Vegas in a few weeks. I realize I may have to convert the movie into something the iPad can use but I can't figure out how to download movies period.

    Thanks.

    I don't see that at all. When I click on a purchased movie, it just bring up another page with info on the movie and the area where the movie is with the play button. When I click on the play button it starts to play it in a YouTube window. But no push pin anywhere.

    Yeah, I don't see that anywhere. :(

    I go into My Movies & TV and it has the movie I purchased. No pin there. When I click on that, it gives me the other screen I mentioned (no pin).

    That's from your phone. I'm trying to do it from my computer so I can download it.

    I can't even figure out how to see movies I've purchased on my phone. I can only go to Movies & TV but I can't find My Movies anywhere in the app.

    minor detail you left out there lol

    thats odd, they should be linked to your gmail account. that movie in the pic was free with my n7, screen shot from my bionic.
    i dont know what else to tell you, sorry.

    On my phone, I just can't figure out where to go to see purchased movies. There is no option to see MY movies, just Movies & TV. I can download apps just fine from the phone.

    I appreciate your trying to help. I've been trying to figure this out since yesterday and just can't find anything anywhere that explains all of this. That's one MAJOR thing I hate about Google, they just have HORRIBLE support for this sort of thing.

    Don't you just go to play store - movies and TV - click the "..." Button or menu button and select "my movies."

    i dont know if this will help or not but i cant find it either on my phone. what i did was went to the play store, searched for "Google Play Movies & TV", clicked on it and opened it from there.
    only from searching for you did i see it was installed already on my phone, even though i cant find it.

    No. I figured it out about 5 mins. ago. You have to use a totally different App...Google Movies & TV (or something like that). As much as I love Google, why they hell do they make things so friggin' complicated.

    Anyway, now I've got the pin. But still no dice on figure out how to download to my computer. I'm wondering if I have to download it to the phone then transfer it. Irritating but I can (at least) work with that.
