How can you LEGALLY buy Movie Downloads

September 12th, 2011 at 12:49 pm

Okay so I am getting ready to deploy. I have a Netflix account, I have my favorite Movies on DVD (like 10).

I am worried that the internet I can purchase will be to slow to stream DVD's. The top speed is 1MSPB or some combination of letters that start with M. I do not want to carry a huge binder of DVD Movies, I would like to have the Movies on a hard drive.

What is the legal way to do this? Is there a legal way to get my Favorite Movies in a Digital Version. PS my favorite favorite Movie is a 1954 movie called Seven Brides for Seven Brothers...It cost $45 YEARS ago special order to get it in DVD version, Much much cheaper now with EBAY and Amazon.

I see SOME movies (Not the favorites I really want) are available for purchase with a Blueray copy, but this means you have to have the TIME to buy the DVD and then enter a code into your computer (that is verified---note need internet also), all in order to not carry around the DVD.

I was hoping someone knew of a site where you could pay to just do a file download of your favorite movies....Kinda like buying individual MP3 downloads. Or am I totally off base since DVD's cost $20 and MP3 downloads are like $.99 to $2.99 each.

Thanks for knowledge.

    Have you tried iTunes? You can buy and download individual movies.

    iTunes would be my best suggestion, too. But they can still be expensive. My DH took just the DVD's we already owned (minus the cases) in a dvd storage case. People also sent dvds for his birthday and christmas.

    I was also going to suggest iTunes, although the cost can lead to some people not going that route. Most of the people I know with movies on a portable hard drive did NOT do so legally, I am pretty sure of that... but I would think that there would have to be some insurance of a way to make it happen. Good luck! You will definitely want movies to watch on deployment.
