Living in the future, rant version

So I bought a movie on Amazon and downloaded it to my ipad, so I could watch it on the TV, because that's how I stream Netflix, and it's the easiest thing to do. Problem? Amazon videos won't export to external devices. They claim it's a rights thing.

FINE. I'll buy a movie on iTunes. I've watched iTunes episodes on the TV without problems. Oh, but not PROTECTED movies. Those won't go out, via my Apple-brand HDMI converter, to the TV. Because rights.

Seriously, I just want to watch the stupid movie that I've legally bought on the stupid TV from my iPad. WHY SO HARD?!

And it's not like it's any CHEAPER to get the digital edition than buying a hardcopy DVD, despite trying to be, you know, ecologically conscious and not needing the giant boxes and the pounds of shipping junk and the stupid disc that will eat space on the shelves forever.

Only special movies get shelf space *glares at all the VHS tapes sitting by the TV*

Yeah I have a number of VHS movies that have never come out on dvd or bluray. Major annoyance but keeps the dust off the VCR :-)
