Cheap DVDs /Markets

We are in the north end of playa currently staying in a condo. We were in an original unit that had a smart TV and Netflix however due to some security issues we had to change units and we no longer have Netflix. Also my iPad got stolen so we no longer have internet except my phone! But we do have a small DVD player that seems to play all manner of DVDs including burned copies. Wondering where would be the best place to go grab a couple of DVDs to keep us company on these rainy days were having? Also if anybody can tell me where to find a good market these days I'd appreciate it, the few that we went to that I found listed on various sites are not currently happening.
Gracias!

Just curious, but what security issues with Netfix?
What kind of market?
There is a small eco-market - Kava Kasa Market on Tuesdays 11am to 2pm.
Calle 22 between 5th and 10th.

The tiagus (flea market) on Sundays. On calle 54 and calle 56 between AV. 10 and AV. 30. You can find almost anything and everything there......maybe even your iPad

The security issues were not with Netflix, they were with the condo itself. I've heard about the market tomorrow that was mentioned but it seems to be the only one I can find that's happening in Playa currently? If there's any more I'd be glad to know about it.

It is, by far, the largest of its type in Playa. Cancun's tiagus is a whole lot bigger.

"winter".............are you drunk
We really don't have winter, at least not like those that I experienced for 17 years in South Dakota. Now, THAT'S WINTER.
And, yes, we can do the Cancun tiagus this "winter". I will call it that if it makes you happy.

North side of Juarez there appears to be a few shops with some questionable DVDs your looking for Try between 10th and perhaps 25th? I know I've seen them there before. Usually just clipped to wire frames.
