I haven't had an issue with the way I'm doing it, but perhaps a component is missing from you PC. If I try to browse bigpond movies from within 7MC, I am asked to install a few bits of software and upgrade certain security components as well as provide a unique id for my machine.

It may be worth your trying this to see if it resolves your licensing issues:

Within 7MC I navigate to Extras -> Explore -> Bigpond Movies and upon first time, I'm asked to install a few different bits of software, upgrade some security component and provide a unique id for the machine. A reboot is required at some point in this process, but once I've rebooted, I can browse and download bigpond movies - I logged in using my bigpond account without any issue. I do note that according to the bigpond site, the bigpond media manager is no longer required - but the bigpond component of media centre doesn't seem to operate without it.

HTH
