I believe that should be more than enough.

What's the absolute minimum speed? I have a 4mbps connection, but I don't mind waiting a bit.

Thank you. :(:)Technically, the HD rentals are not streamed. It's downloaded to your HDD.

You can begin watching before the download is finished, but it's still not streaming.

So theorectically, you could use dial-up for this, but you might run past the 30 days before you finish downloading. ;)

A 4mbps connection should be fine, and would be in my opinion, the slowest connection for HD content streaming. Though you'd need to wait.

An 8mbps connection should be ideal for instant streaming/viewing - I get 1.2MB/s when I max out my connection, so presuming that the Apple servers will let me - it should be fine.
