Hi. I'm Chase Thompson-Baugh with Simply Mac, your local source for everything Apple. We're a Utah-based Apple specialist with eight stores in Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming, and today we're going to show you some more quick tips on the iPad that I know you're just going to love. Now I'm going to show you how you can add a digital copy of your movies on your iPad. So the best way to get movies on the iPad is actually through the iTunes store. It's the purple icon, and for instance we have The Muppets movie right here. All you have to do is just tap on buy right here. Now this is a high definition version. That's why it's $20. If I tap on standard definition, I can get the same movie for $15. So definitely for the budget conscious, this is really nice, especially when you consider that most Blurays right now, or even high definition, are about $25-$26 brand new, but on iTunes, they're only $20. If I buy it here on the iPad, it can also transfer to my computer so I can watch it on the computer or watch it on my television if I hook up to the iPad, or if you happen to have the Apple TV, you can also watch it there. And you can watch several different movies. And the iTunes store is probably the largest online video store, so definitely a good place to go is right here. If you happen to subscribe to other services like Netflix, you can download those applications through the App Store. Those applications will not install or store those movies on your iPad, but you can watch them wirelessly if you're on WiFi or 3G. Just be cautious if you are on 3G, because downloading a movie through iTunes or watching it on Netflix does use quite a bit of data, even more so if you're downloading through iTunes or Netflix. So make sure you're on WiFi if you're going to download those large amounts of data. Again, I'm Chase Thompson-Baugh with Simply Mac, and I've shown you how you can add digital movies to your iPad.
