    I never bother with the download - just stream the movies from itunes - unless I am going to be on a plane or somewhere without a wifi connect

    Ussually if I switch from another device to iPad it picks up where it was on the last device and no need to start over.

    If it is a rental - the download won't be good for very long anyway

    I don't think there is any way to transfer an apple movie file from iTunes to the iPad - I might be wrong perhaps someone else here knows if it is possible

    Probably your best best option is to download the lower res version if the connection is slow

    Generally the drm protected items get downloaded in a way that can’t be transferred across devices. I’m afraid a new download needs to be initiated.
