Re: bigpond movie rental

Simple answer: Because this is the way the system works.

 

Also, it is quite clearly stated on the Website under supported devices:

Please note, downloads must be rented and watched on the same device

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi Romymouse,

 

The security components embedded within the content files prevents some customers from playing back BigPond Movies titles from their PC to their TV. This can be from a combination of PC configurations, type of connection and type of TV. Due to the large number of configurations involved, we are unable to provide support for the playback of content from your PC to your TV. Some customers who were unable to do this using a HDMI cable were successful using analogue cables, and vice versa.
