    This is probably a silly question, but can you download iTunes movies to the Apple TV 4? I got Star Wars on iTunes and as I will probably end up watching multiple times would rather download it once to the Apple TV vice streaming it every time I watch it. The reason is I don't have a very large data plan and if I stream the same thing over and over it will quickly chew through it. I would prefer to download it once, I looked and did not see the option. I am guessing I am out of luck, but will ask just incase I am missing something obvious.

    No. But you could download it to your iTunes Capable PC or Mac and then stream from there. It does actually download to the ATV 4 and will allow to watch over and over until you watch something else that then removes it. iTunes Sharing is your best bet.

    Thanks, unfortunately that is the answer I was expecting.

    Since the 2nd generation, Apple TV has been a streaming only device.
