    I bought and downloaded a movie from Google Play? I'd like to save it on another SD card, but I can't find it in storage, using Astro File Manager. Does Google hide it, so you can't do that?

    Thanks a bunch.

    If you could just move it wherever you wanted there would be nothing stopping you from giving it away to all your friends. It's either in their cloud and only usable on your device or coded in a way to be non transferable. Instead of moving it, sign into your account on the other device and it will be accessible.

    It has to do with licenses and all that.

    Thank you. I'd assumed as much, but I wanted to check with you experts! I can understand their piracy concerns.

    There's an app called show box that you must download directly from them not the play store. It's awesome. You can download all movies they offer for free, then use the Sandisk app to transfer them to your SD card. Quality is fantastic. Full HD and stereo sound. I've got quite a few. I watch them when I fly. I did pay for most of them in Google play, but unless you're allowed to transfer them to the SD card, you can't even keep them on your device. Not enough internal storage. So try show box. Google it. I've been using for almost a year with no issues. By the way, they have a great selection of old and just released movies.

    To give my opinion on piracy issues, in this day and age of super computers, Google could easily find a way for a purchased movie to go to your SD card but play only on your device. They're being foolish. Once you realize that you can't transfer a movie to the card, people will stop buying. When I contacted google they suggested that I could stream a movie anytime. Try doing that @ 35000 feet.

    I downloaded the app. There are no directions. I type into the Search box, but there's no Go button. Thanks.

    By the way, I agree about Google. There should be a way to "own" your purchases, without them fearing piracy. Droid TV does it, and they're coming back to Google (June 20?)!
