By the way, on the Surface I noticed a purchased movie is downloaded to the My Videos\Xbox Movies folder

So can you watch the movie on your Surface then? Or does it remain unplayable? This might be the deal breaker for me for switching from my iPhone. Once I buy a movie I want to be able to watch it on any of my devices. Sounds like the Microsoft ecosystem isn't up to par yet..

So far, I've purchased six movies and I'm able to view them on my Xbox, windows 8 desktop, and the surface. When purchasing, read the details. Some movies will not be able to stream after a certain date. If you download it to your desktop or Xbox, you're fine.

If I purchase on Surface or Xbox, can you have them downloaded to a network storage drive like a NAS. If not, with windows explorer its easy to move it, with XBOX how do you do that. Storing all the movie downloads on an xbox with no backup setup etc would be an issue for me. Right not, any itunes purchases go into my itunes folder which is actually on my server.
