    I recently purchased a movie using my iTunes account. I have Home Sharing setup and would like to share this purchased movie with my family members connected to my Home Share environment. Is this function available with Home Sharing? If yes, what are the steps to get this purchased movie to all of our iPhones?

    I understand that we all would like to do this but this is what they (RIAA MPAA) call pirating/stealing/theft/etc. You cannot legally "share" a copy of purchased movies or music on two or more iPhones at the same time.

    actually, this is completely legit if one thing is true:

    they all have to be on the exact same itunes account.

    bkoyano- if that's true you would use home sharing (try it) and then sync to the iphone

    I stand corrected!

    Not blowing smoke up your butt or anything, but you always have the most insightful and accurate answers out most people on here.

    Thanks for the quick responses. I've enabled home sharing will test syncing to the iphones.

    this thread is about the home sharing feature in itunes on the desktop, not apps.

    Home sharing worked and I now can share purchased movies with my family so they can view on their iphones.
