Hi Denise,
Yes, you should be able to. The data hit takes place when you 1st download the movie. A one time event.

Many people do their downloads during the late night free zone (12 - 5 am) and then watch them at their leisure.

Hope it helps, welcome to the forum and enjoy.

Hi John,
Yes, Netflix works the same way.

There is a program called PlayLater which allows you to download movies, videos, and many other outlets. Like YouTube, Amazon, HULU, vudu, HBOGO, and about 50 other offerings and so on. 

Doing so during the LNFZ can save many Gig's off of your allotment, and then you have them on your computer to watch anytime, over and over if you wish.

Since Exede does not limit your LNFZ amounts, you are only limited by the time it takes to pull down the movie. I have averaged about 4 to 5 movies during the 5 hour period.

Hope it helps, and welcome to the forum.

That's not been our experience. Even downloading movies are constantly interrupted by the spinning circle and the "buffering" message. Then we get a message the the bandwidth is insufficient for the program we are watching (or downloading). This also happens during the LNFZ. This is with SD movies, no use in even trying for the HD movies. I don't think satellite internet is really ready for prime-time. If you have a fiber optic cable option, go for it, much better than satellite.
