AFAIK there's no native bittorrent[*] client for Android, but there are numerous ways to transfer files from a pc to a 101. Movies can be files...

As for watching those movie-files on the tablet, if you don't know how to do that, I'd suggest selling your tablet for a season's ticket in a movie theatre...

[*] Of course, I have no idea what a bittorrent is, never having use one myself. 8)

You can backup and copy your own movies quite easily. There are plenty of tutorials for using such apps as Handbrake to convert video, and others to pull video off of DVDs.
BitTorrent is a touchy subject, but it can be used for good if used the right way. You can always download copies of movies you already own. There is nothing illegal about that. So if you don't want to convert your own movies, you can download them... Just don't try to blame us if some government agency comes kicking your door in for piracy.

Feel free to discuss legal methods of getting your own movies, or rented/bought movies, such as Netflix, Google Video, another other legal methods.

Please do not start posting links to illegally download movies.
