How to Remove Download Devices from Movies & TV app in Windows 10

information   Information
The Movies & TV app is included with Windows 10, and let's you have all your movies and TV shows, all in one place, on all your devices.

Movies & TV brings you the latest entertainment in one app on Windows. On your PC and Windows Mobile, the app lets you play and manage videos from your personal collection. On all your devices, you can use the app to browse and play movies and TV shows you’ve purchased from the Store.

When you sign in to the Movies & TV app and purchase content from the Store, the device you signed in from will be automatically added as one of your download devices.

You can download purchased content to up to five devices and redownload the content as many times as you like. Rentals can only be played on the device on which they were purchased.

If you have reached the limit of five devices, you’ll see the following message when you try to purchase or rent content on any additional device:

To download this rental, remove one of your other devices.

To resolve this problem, you’ll need to remove one of the devices. You can only remove one device every 30 days. Once you've successfully removed the device, you’ll get a message that says your downloaded items will be removed from the current device. You can redownload the items to the device later if you add it again.

This tutorial will show you how to remove a device from your download devices in the Movies & TV app for your account in Windows 10.

2. Open the Movies & TV app.
