iTunes Movie Rentals Review
Apple has once again pushed forward the digital entertainment marketplace with its iTunes Movie Rental service.
Though it's not perfect, after having used Apple's iTunes Movie Rental service a couple of times in the week since it
was unveiled, I'd say that this is the best offering of its kind to date and may point the way to how we'll get our
movies in the future.
The iTunes Video Rentals service works just about as smoothly as all the other services you've come to expect from
the iTunes Store.
How to rent movies from the iTunes Store on your computer?
1. In iTunes on your computer, click iTunes Store.
2. In the iTunes Store, find a movie you want to rent.
3. Click Rent. Your movie will begin to download immediately.
Once the movie is downloaded, you can watch it on your computer or transfer the rental to a supported iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV:
1. Connect the device and select it in iTunes.
2. Click the Movies tab (for iPod), or the Videos tab (iPhone or Apple TV)
3. Select the movie, and then click.
4. After all movies have been moved, click "Apply" in the lower right corner of iTunes.
You must be connected to the Internet to transfer a rented movie.
Vii: The iTunes Store movie rental usage rules are as follows:
You have 30 days to watch the movie after the download completes. You can start watching the movie while it is still downloading.
Once you've started to watch the movie, you have 24 hours to finish watching the movie (even if you start watching before
the download is complete). You can watch the movie as many times as you want within this 24-hour period.
The rented movie will expire when either the 30 day or 24-hour limit is reached. Once the rental expires,
the movie is automatically deleted. You must re-rent and download the movie to view it after your rented movie has expired.
You can move the movie between devices as many times as you wish during the rental period, but the movie can only be
played on one device at a time. If you rent the movie on your Apple TV, it is not transferable to any other device and you
must watch it on your Apple TV.
On your device, the time remaining for you to finish watching the movie appears near the movie title.
You can only play your rented movies on the computer you rented it from and only if it is authorized to play your iTunes
Store purchases and rentals.
