I just sold 3 usb3 1.0tb for 50 each on eBay, could hav had one of them

Look for USB 3.0 and make sure it's 2.5" so you won't need to plug it in to a wall socket

Will most TV's not be USB 2.0 anyway?

Id be interested to know how large a full length movie would be.
If I had to guess, your TV would most likely want to see a FAT32 formatted drive which has a maximum file size of ~4gb.

If a full length film is bigger than that it wouldnt work.
