    Sorry if this is an easy search item. I am having internet issues and it is easier to type my post in Pages, get connection, paste, it, then look for reply later.




    As mentioned I am having internet (and Cable) issues and it will be a few days before Cox can make it out when I can be home.


    I thought that I had all my purchased iTunes Movies downloaded to my Apple TV 4 so I did not have to have a internet connection to watch them. I was wrong, they are heavily buffered, imagine watching ATV on 56k


    When I get a connection again, how can I / do I set it up so it ATV downloads the entire movie to physical storage.


    I thought it was the same as downloading to my computer but that either did not happen or it poofed. And available storage is not an issue, already considered that


    Thank you

    You download things to your iTunes library on computer, and play them on your AppleTV from there.

    I have to use AirPlay or such?

    I thought it was possible to download directly to ATV storage :(
