I was curious if anyone else has had this problem. I have been trying to download the rental 2012 in HD and I've been having a terrible time. I have plenty of space on my iPad. When I first started everything was fine. It takes a long time and the iPad went to sleep, but I assumed that movie downloads continue. Well anyhow I got a Download Error after half of it was downloaded. The only way to get it to restart and clear the partial download was to completely restore my iPad. After going through the whole restore process it has happened AGAIN! After about 2 GB of the movie downloaded. My network is pretty fast.
While traveling, I tried to download a movie rental for the flight home, but the download time is over 7 hours, necessitating a bit of foresight for a modicum of entertainment value. I left the download running overnight, but a workaround is necessary to avoid having the download abort, and that is turning off the sleep function in settings/auto-lock/never. I will now try it again, but how successful does Apple think their video rental business is going to be with this paradigm? A disillusioned consumer is the worst case, because they blog negative on your product.
It is misleading over-marketing of this product for Mr Jobs to create the illusion of easy access to video entertainment, create a marketplace for accessing such entertainment, but fail to engineer some sort of compression of these huge video files so that the download process with consumer level connectivity speeds is remotely practical.
I have 3 movie rentals that I have not been able to download. At this time I would like to clear them from the IPad. Everytime I open the IPad Applications it requests my password so it can start a new download only to get another error.
I have just bought an iPad and downloaded a movie rental. 20 minutes from the end of the movie it haws stopped playing!! Even though it has more chapters on the main screen it will not play the end chapters. Can anyone help?
I've downloaded a rental movie onto my iPad, that I wasn't able to finish watching in time, but it still shows in iTunes under downloads (that is now more than 4 weeks ago!). I would like to delete this movie now, but when I go into the videos app, I can only see my purchased movies, and the button for "rentals" does not even appear, although I now rented another movie that is downloading... Apparently once I'm into rental, I can then click onto the edit button and remove the movie....but there is no rental button/tab....
I've just rented toy story in my ipad, but apparently it does not download.I tried syncing it to iTunes, but iTunes won't download it even when I clicked "check for available downloads".I tried restarting, hard restart the iPad, syncing iPad with iTunes, but nothing works.
How do i transfer an itunes movie rental to my ipad 3? The downloaded movie is under "Rentals". When I click on "Rentals", I see the movie, but I I don't see any option to transfer to my ipad. The rented movie does not show up under "Movies".
I just got my new iPad and am disappointed it doesn't have the iPod clock/timer/alarm. Does anyone know of a good app that will turn my iPad off after a certain length of time?Like if I fall asleep using something on my iPad?
I have a movie that i have downloaded using Itunes on my IMac at home. But I forgot to sync the Ipad to the Mac. Now i would like to watch the movie BUT i am away for a period of time and need to down load it to my IPad direct. When i have tried to do this Itunes wants to charge me again for a movie I have already bought. IS there a way of downloading a movie to the IPad with out paying again. Icloud doesn't want to work on it either.
I used iTunes on my iPad to download Ninja Assassin as a rental. I was unable to find a significantly strong connection to finish.I re-rented the movie on my computer which had a significantly strong connection. I moved the movie to my iPad and watched it.My iPad is still trying to download the rental movie. How do I cancel iTunes downloads on my iPad?
I have downloaded my first rental movie while I slept. When I got back to my iPad, iTunes had shut down so I began to try to find my movie. It wasn't in my purchases, in my film or TV library or anywhere I could look. Nothing, nada, no clue and no help in support!
I have spent ages hunting for some clue but... I played another TV show download that I had and at the end if the show I selected the TV shows tab and it goes to a different page to the library with the show icons visible. At the top of this page were two option tabs, TV shows and Rentals. Lo and behold, the Rental tab took me to my download!
There has to be an easier way... What is it please?
Is it just me, or is there no way to stream rentals or movies you buy from the itunes store. I knew the iPhone was like this, but this sucks. That means you have to wait until a movie is completely done downloading before you can watch
As we all know Apple gives the permissions to rent movies on itunes, teh question goes , for how long can this movie be rented ?? How can i know?? For your instance, i have not tried renting so maybe something will pop up and notify me, but im curious im afraid the rent will finish after i click play and see it only once
I downloaded a movie rental before my travels and when I tried to play it an error message came up that said the movie is unable to play. I have tried restating the I pad 2 but it did not correct the problem. Any advice on how to correct this issue.
I've looked for an answer, but it mostly seems to be from people who don't know how to access the delete option. That isn't my problem.
I have a iTunes movie rental that is stuck on my iPad. It has expired, and pressing the X after holding the movie icon down till it shakes doesn't delete the movie. I get the warning and all, but nothing happens after I hit the Delete. It doesn't appear in iTunes, so I can't delete it from there either.
I rented a movie a week ago, i was supposed to have 30 days and 48 hours of viewing, i have viewed it twice. I tried pressing play today and i keep getting this message that this movie cannot be played.
I recently rented three movies via iTunes on my computer. I want to watch them on my flight tomorrow so I transferred them to my iPad. There was an error on one of the three... it said there wasn't sufficient space although there is over 27GB free. Now the movie is no longer on my computer nor my iPad. Trying it again, the other two transferred over successfully. I've done this several times before without any problems.
