Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Expert:  Nathan replied 3 months ago.

Is there a specific app/service you had in mind (more so than the hardware)?
You can get most of the latest movies through itunes on an appletv, or amazon, crackle, flix, or other apps through a roku or fire tv.

If you were thinking of getting movies for free (illegally) that is a bit different.

it's not about getting something illegally, I just want to know what kind of box it is and what it does
Expert:  Nathan replied 3 months ago.

Thanks for clarifying. We get all types of requests as you can imagine, so I just wanted to be clear too that I couldn't help with that sort of thing.

For what you want, I'd recommend a roku or fire tv or appletv.

Appletv has Itunes on it specifically which has most of the latest movies available (typically 1-2 months after they hit theaters) Roku and amazon do as well just through different apps/services.

If you are an apple iphone/ipad user, I'd go with the appletv because the interface is similar and will be easy to get used to.

Otherwise either of the others would be better.
