    Need help with Video and Music apps

    I was wondering if buying music and videos through the Video and Music apps is the same as itunes? Can I backup what I buy on a hard drive? I don't want to buy movies that are only available through streaming. I want to back up my movies and music so that I can watch and listen offline and so that I won't lose it. Thank you for your help. Forgive me if this has been asked and answered already.

    yes you can

    music is drm free (mp3 format) so you can do what you want with them, same as iTunes

    movies have drm on them (same as iTunes), you can download and back them up but they will only play on MS devices (win 8, Windows Phone, xbox), similar to how iTunes movies only play on Apple devices/software

    stream or download the choice is yours

    Thank you for your help. I guess I will just buy music then. The only windows device I have is my laptop and I watch my movies in iTunes because that's where they all are. Thank you again.

Local Files in Music, Video Apps, Etc
At a glance, it looks like there is no way to load local files into the libraries of the Music or Video apps, and that they are only for Microsoft store content. Does this seem to be the case to everyone else? If not... These apps seem to be pretty useless to someone, like me, who has a large...
