    Have they mentioned officially if this is just over WiFi? I figure it is but was wondering if they specifically mentioned that.

    I guarantee it will be. Which sucks ass, because if you want to rent a movie on a long car ride, you don't have WiFi available.

    It's still limited to the 10MB AT&T limit. Because of that... it's WiFi only.

    I just tested and the movie didn't show up in my iPod application until it had completely downloaded.

    That sucks, so you can't play it while its downloading or what?

    Nope. As I said, it didn't even show up in the iPod app. In the iTunes app the only option was a pause button, which paused the downloading.

    I guess if you're in an airport with WiFi, a power outlet and enough time, you can download a movie and watch it on the plane. I was able to play other videos while the new one was downloading.
