Instantly accessible movies, TV shows, and games are one of the most convenient inventions of the early 21st century, but they’re not without their problems. One big problem? Just because you bought and paid for a digital good doesn’t mean you actually get to keep it forever. A user said this:
“Recently I rented a HD movie from Amazon Instant Video service (formerly Amazon Video on Demand) and downloaded it to my computer using the Unbox video player. With reference to Amazon video rental policy, this rented movie will remain playable for 30 days, and once start playing, I have only 24 hours to finish watching it. I wonder is there a way that let me keep this movie rented from Amazon Instant Video permanently on my computer?”
Amazon.com Inc. control the rental videos’ watching period through the Windows Media DRM technology, and the downloaded videos you rent can only be viewed on the Amazon-authorized devices, such as PCs, TiVo boxes or Kindle Fires. Therefore, in order to make your Amazon Instant Video rentals last on your hard drive forever, or get your Amazon Instant Video rentals playback on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and other lack-authority multimedia devices, you will have to get rid of the DRM protections on the movies and TV-shows rented from Amazon Instant Video service.
