    iTunes to download, Netflix to stream.

    I should be clear about something. I'm looking for an app that would allow me to download into my iPad (when I get it). I'm not really interested in streaming.

    iTunes has movies for purchase and rent. I've downloaded one movie to my iPad. It's pretty easy to do, but is not a quick process. They also take up a chunk of space.

    Do you know how much the space the average movie (if purchased) would take up? My iPad's on the way and it's got 64 Gigs.

    I've been ripping DVD's that I already own so I can play them on my iPad1 and they are great quality with each file being around 1.2GB give or take. Depends on the length of the movie.

    Wow! My iPad is coming soon, and even at 64GB that would be used up real fast!

    Depends on how long you're going to be away from your PC. I keep about 6 different movies on my 64GB iPad depending on what I am in the mood to watch over the next few days.

    Or you could stream as was just pointed out. :)

    Yassas / Hi all,


    I have been enjoying the first series of Blake's 7 on my 32Gb iPad and the BBC's "The Great War" with all episodes around 360 Mb for 40/50 mins and I used AVS Media to convert the original avi files. As I spend a lot of time sitting in my car while the wife/daughters/dogs visit doctors/shops/wherever, the iPad sits nicely atop the steering wheel airbag and I am no longer impatiently tapping the dashboard and sending hurry-up texts (the odd funny look from passing Greeks is entertainment enough). In standard definition, a 90-minute movie should not be much more than 700 Mb. High definition is more than double that but for old TV episodes (in these cases from the 60s and 70s) the choice is not there...yet.

    There's no need to pay for an app to stream movies from the PC to the iPad. You can simply set up home sharing. You can also stream music with iTunes home sharing.

    Don't forget Hulu Plus when counting down video apps. It's got a lot of great TV shows on it even if the movie collection is a bit low.
