I tried to find if a thread was already created but didn't find any. The forum needs an Xbox video section.
I was wondering if anyone bought an SD Video from the store. How is the quality? Is there really a big difference with SD and HD to justify the $6 difference? If SD still looks great I would rather buy that.
Also if I bought an Instant Video from Amazon, would it properly show up in the Video App just as if I bought it from Microsoft? Description, DVD Cover, etc. I just bought Ted and I think it looks cool in the collection.

I've purchased video in both definitions. SD is fine on my little 22 inch tv. On my 47 inch? Its not bad. But you can tell its SD. HD is clearly HD. I usually base which one I buy in the content. If I need to catch up on a television show episode, I'll buy SD. If its a blockbuster movie like The Avengers, then HD

Thanks! I saw The Avengers too, I'll probably buy that. I guess $6 is worth the premium. Do you know if there are any HDMI cables that send sound from the Surface to a TV? My HP Laptop never got the audio to send when it should have. Does the Microsoft adapter work?

Another question is if I buy a movie from Amazon/Google, would it show up in the Video App just like the movies bought in the store? Like DVD cover, details. Has anyone tried this? HD seems to cost a little more for Xbox Video.

On a side note. I recently purchased a micro HDMI cable that works perfectly with the Surface RT with video and audio for $5.
