Sure, you could fill your Surface tablet (Windows RT or Windows 8 Pro) with purchased and rented videos from the Xbox Video store for offline viewing on airplanes or road trips. Or you could save some cash and fill it with movies or television episodes you extract from your DVD & Blu-ray collection using a DVD & Blu-ray ripping software. Don't worry you will break the copyright law, because you just digitize your own DVDs & BDs for personal use.
