Services and Devices that Allow Downloading of Rentals
I scoured the forum for mentions of downloading rentals during the past couple years, but found very few. Note that I am talking about DOWNLOADING a rental to watch, not STREAMING a rental.
I prefer to do this because speeds can vary greatly in my neighborhood -- from barely SD quality speeds to perfect 15mbps, and everything in between, over any given hourly period. We are nearly a year into the local providers trying to fix that. So I am not holding my breath.
Right now, I use VUDU, and a PS3, because I can download a rented HDX movie overnight, and have a pristine viewing experience (okay, not blu ray quality, but good enough for most movies) the next day.
But VUDU is limited. For example, I wanted to watch the Satyajit Ray movies from the 60's last weekend (The Music Room, The Big City, Charulata) and Vudu had none. But Amazon had several in HD for rental.... So I suffered through speed and quality changes in order to watch them.
And it inspired me to seek out some ways to download rentals for the home theater, in addition to VUDU and a PS3.
