I have been searching the internet for this problem but wasnt able to find any solution. I have an US iTunes account since a long time, which I created with iTunes Gift Cards. I have been using this to buy music from the US iTunes Store. Now I bought myself an Apple TV along with a 50$ Giftcard in Las Vegas. I went back home to germany just to find out that I can't rent movies at all. Apple TV has my US iTunes account (double checked that). It is also set to USA and English. When I try to rent a movie I get the message that I need to put in my payment information. Since I don't have a US credit card I can't put anything in there of course. But I do have 100$ on my account, but it still wants the credit card info. I can still buy music from the us store with this account though which I find quite interesting. Did Apple change anything lately? I really thought you could still rent movies with AppleTV as long as you had an US iTunes account.
