As long as your Video card has the proper output such as HDMI or S-Video and your TV supports the same type of video cable you have, you should be able to watch your movies on the TV.

If your dual screen setup leaves you with the movie on the computer monitor and the desktop on your TV, you can switch the two around very easily.

Now your movies will play on your television screen and your desktop will be on your computer screen.

I want to ask the same question.

I already answered the question.

When you run dual monitors, windows allows you the option to switch what is on monitor #1 onto monitor #2 and result switches #2 to #1.

It is usually done by right clicking the desktop and choosing the option to switch monitors.
Now depending on your video card's software setup, I can not be more specific than that.
