    I ususally buy or rent movies for my family on Google Play Movies. I have an Amazon Fire Stick TV on my TV and we watch it there. I usually don't worry about image quality as I know Fire Stick is very slow.

    Today I rented a movie to watch on my PC. To my surprise I can only stream it on 480P. As I researched latter, it has something to with wtaching on the browser and HDCP. Is there a software I need to install in order for me to watch it on HD on PC?

    Is this only a Google problem, or Netflix and Apple TV on iTunes have that problem as well?

    Afaik, Google Play Movies is fully integrated into Youtube Movies, try watching from that site. Should show the same purchases.
