Question: New Apple ID and losing my ITunes movies

My apple ID has been compromised. I changed my password but someone is STILL trying to get in. I set up a new AppleID with a new email. But now how do I tell ITunes to CHANGE to a different email address without losing the 70 movies I've purchased? Thank you for helping.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.5), iPadIII and MBP15

Answer:
Answer:

Anything that you download from the iTunes Store is permanently tied to the account that downloaded it. Instead of creating a new account you should have changed the primary email address on the existing account (which you can still do, but you will have to use a different email address, you won't be able to use the one you've put on the newly created account) : Change your Apple ID - Apple Support

I have kind of this question too. To clarify, if I keep the same account, but change the sign-in Apple ID from XXX@mac.com to YYY@icloud.com, I will still have all the purchases made under the mac.com ID? I'm trying to understand. Thanks for any help

If you follow the steps in the article King_Penguin posted a link to, you will/should retain your purchases. I'm not sure you will be able to change from an @mac.com to an @iCloud.com address. The article covers the restrictions.
