HT1498 Why do rented movies on AppleTV have to start the download all over again if I didn't watch it yesterday?

I rented a 1080p movie using AppleTV (3rd gen) several days ago. But the download time was so slow that I decided to let it download & watch it another day. Two days later I tried to watch it and the long slow download started all over again. So again I let it load intending to watch it the next day. When I wanted to watch it yesterday SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN! Why is this happening? Isn't ATV's hard drive big enough to store it? The movie cover always showed in the "rented" section but obviously wasn't really there.
