Buying and playing commercial videos on BlackBerry Bold

I'd like to buy videos the way my wife does off iTunes and play them on my BlackBerry, but I was told I couldn't use those from iTunes. Where can I buy videos that can play on the BlackBerry? What format must the videos be in? Or can I buy an iTunes video and recode it by changing the suffixes?
