How to rewatch movies rented on ATV 3?

Last night I rented WWZ on my ATV3. I started watching it but turned it off as I planned on watching it over again today.

I cannot find how to watch it anywhere on the ATV menu. I was so frustrated, I was going to rent it again. So i click rent, and it tells me to go the Settings then Downloads. There is NO choice in settings for Downloads. The closest thing I can find is under the I Tunes Store menu a "Check for Rentals" choice but when I click that it just sits there spinning forever and nothing happens.

When I go to my computer and go to I Tunes, I can't figure out how to play it or download it from there, either. In my account history, it does show that I purchased it, but can't figure out how to play it.

Please help!

Is weird that nobody has helped you, seems like a simple question
Unfortunately I don't rent movies , never have, I use the Apple TV for AirPlay & computer home sharing

So I can't help you

Next time rent it on the computer in iTunes. Gives you more options that way. Should have been on ATV for 24hrs though.

In my experience I just clicked rent again, and it checked against some database and pucked up right where I left off. Are you on 6.0 software?
