The primary task of Tesco Hudl movie playback is working out how to get the contents on your Hudl 3.
First, you should connect the Tesco hudl 3 to a PC with a USB cable. Your PC will mount the hudl 3 as a "media device". Then, once that's done, just drag and drop any video files from your PC to the hudl 3.
