NOOK Video
NOOK Video™ is a streaming and download service that
allows you to rent movies and purchase movies and TV
shows for viewing on your NOOK. NOOK Video offers a wide
variety of popular movies and TV shows.
NOOK Video supports both streaming and downloading
content. When you purchase or rent a movie, you need to
select how you will access it: streaming or downloading.
Unlike books and periodicals, videos do not download
automatically when purchased.
Streaming means that the content is delivered over an active
Wi-Fi connection. You must be connected to a Wi-Fi Internet
connection to watch streamed content. Streaming videos
does not require any storage on your NOOK.
Note: When streaming content, it's best to have to a strong
Wi-Fi connection.
Downloading means that you transfer the NOOK Video
content over a Wi-Fi connection to your NOOK just as you
download other content like books and magazines. Once you
have downloaded a NOOK Video, you can watch it any time
regardless of whether or not your NOOK is connected to Wi-Fi
NOOK
54
(though rented content must be watched within the rental
period, as described below). Unlike streamed videos,
downloaded videos do consume storage on your NOOK.
If you plan to download many videos, you should consider
purchasing an optional microSD card (not included) to give
your NOOK extra storage.
Note: Downloading videos may take some time. The speed of
the download will depend on the length of the video and
the bandwidth of your Wi-Fi network. If you are
planning to download a movie to watch it offline (for
example, in a location without a Wi-Fi network, such as
in a car or on a plane), we recommend that you connect
your NOOK to a power source and begin downloading
the movie as soon as you have purchased or rented it.
55
Renting Movies
You can rent movies on your NOOK.
• Once you rent an item, you have 30 days to begin watching

watching it before the rental expires. You can watch the
item as many times as you like within that 24-hour period.
• You can stream an item to begin watching it right away, or
you can download an item to begin watching it within the
30-day rental period.
Note: You may download a rented movie to only one device
during the rental period, so be sure to download only on
the device on which you intend to watch the movie. In
contrast, you may stream movies on all authorized
NOOK devices during the rental period. You may
authorize up to five devices through your NOOK
account.

NOOK Profiles
A NOOK Profile™ tailors content and shopping experiences
on your NOOK for an individual user.
Your NOOK supports up to six NOOK profiles, enabling
different people to use your NOOK in different ways.
All the purchases made on your NOOK through any profile are
processed through the NOOK or BN.com account to which
your NOOK is registered.
Types of Profiles
Your NOOK supports three types of NOOK Profiles:
• Primary Profile: This is the profile created by default when
you register your NOOK. This profile can view all the
content on the device an. It can also create and edit
profiles for other users and manage those profiles' access
to content. All purchases made on the NOOK are processed
using the payment method associated with this profile.
57
• Adult Profile: An adult profile can purchase any type of
content. An adult profile can also control which content is
visible to itself and which content is visible to any child
profile. It can also set parental controls for child profiles. It
cannot control which content is visible to the primary
profile.
• Child Profile: By default, a child profile can only view and
purchase content authorized by the primary profile or
through parental controls configured by an adult profile. A
child profile does not have the ability to create or edit other
profiles. It cannot override parental controls.
Parental Controls
Simple-to-use parental controls help create a "kid-safe"
experience on your NOOK. Using parental controls, you can
limit the types of content that child profiles can view and
purchase. You set up parental controls when you create a
child profile. You can adjust them later if you like by editing
the child profile.
Tip: You can access controls for profiles at any time by
touching
in the NOOK Shop or Library.
In addition, you can select the TV and movie ratings the child
profile is allowed to access. Choices include:
•G
• PG
• PG 13
• TV Y
• TV Y7

specific child profile can:

profiles on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK, their profiles

continue to display the user's icon, and the user
account can be used for other apps. However, if the
user wants to access NOOK apps or content, he or she
will have to sign in and set up a NOOK profile.
Managing Content for a Profile
The same content can be shared by multiple profiles, but
each profile will need to download the content independently.
For example, if the Primary Profile owns a particular NOOK
Book and grants another profile access to it, the book will
appear in the other profile's Library with a download icon,
indicating that the book is available for download. To read
the book, the other profile simply has to download it.
Annotations, such as notes and highlights, made in a book do
not appear in other profiles' copies of the same book.
Similarly, if two profiles own the same book, their reading
positions in the book remain independent. If one profile reads
to page 17 and the other profile reads to page 25, each
profile will be taken to their most recently read page when
the book is reopened, regardless of how far the other profile
has read.
1. In the Library or Shop, touch
to display a list of
profiles, and then select an option:
• To manage your own profile’s content, touch Manage
