Managing and Syncing Video on Your Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK

By Corey Sandler

If you purchase video content from the NOOK Store, you are allowed to view that content on as many as five different devices. What does that mean? If you happen to own two NOOKs, you can watch the same video on either one. If you have a streaming video device attached to a large-screen television, or a laptop computer with a NOOK app installed, they too can stream the video you have purchased.

The one additional necessary step is to tell the BN mother ship which devices are authorized to access your NOOK Video collection. Here’s how:

  1. From any Home screen, tap the Apps icon and then tap the NOOK Settings icon.

  2. Tap Video and then tap Manage NOOK Video.

    You’ll see a screen that lists the NOOK devices currently associated with your account and authorized to access content.

    To remove a device from the list of authorized devices, tap its name and then confirm that you want to delete it.

    To give permission to a new device, you must sign in on that device using the same account name and password you used to purchase the video content. Add a checkmark next to the name of a device to authorize it for video viewing.

You can also sync your Tab S2 NOOK to your NOOK account; doing so keeps it updated with all your currently purchased content. Syncing also lets you know about tablet updates, book loan offers, and other notices.

Items you’ve archived aren’t synced.

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the NOOK library.

  2. Tap the Menu icon in the upper-right corner.

  3. Tap Refresh.
