Movies Purchased using Windows 8 Videos App on Multiple PCs

I have two PCs in my house, a Windows 8 laptop and a Windows 7 dedicated MediaCenter PC under the TV. If I purchase a movie from the Movie Store within the Xbox Videos app on the Windows 8 laptop, can I then copy the movie to my MediaCenter PC for playback on that computer? Or does the DRM prevent playback on multiple PCs?

If you've purchased the movie, you would then be allowed to stream or download it on the MediaCenter PC.  I don't believe it'll work if you copy it over directly.  Remember to make sure you're signed in using the same account.

When you purchase videos, the content providers allow you 4 or 5 licenses for the item. If you download it to another computer, delete and redownload, or even just upgrade your OS you can use up another one of those licenses.

In this case, you should be able to download the movie again using either Xbox Video or the Zune software.
