Rented movie to Apple TV?

    I don't get it...

    How do you transfer a "rented movie" that you download from the iTunes store to your Apple TV? I've tried searching the Apple site but... I can't get my rented movie from iTunes on my Apple TV? How do you do this?! It's driving me nuts... I imagine there's something simple I'm missing, because Apple would never make it this hard. ;P

    Their help does state it is one of the devices you can transfer rentals to (in iTunes help). However, I suspect it won't be implemented until the software update for the :apple:tv becomes available (hopefully, Tuesday). The description of how to do the "move" is the same as for iPhone/iPod, but as you probably have found, the tab doesn't have that interface.

    Oh dear, so that means, until the software update, I can't transfer rented movies to my :apple:tv?

    I fell into that "trap" too. Their help shouldn't have the AppleTV listed yet. I think the web site has changed, but when I rented, it still said AppleTV.

    A bit confusing, for sure. I just ended up watching it on my MPB & 20" ACD. Only $3, and I did get to play with rental a bit (moving from MBP to iPhone and back).

    Really looking forward to rentals directly on the AppleTV. Hopefully, just a couple days away.
