HT1390: How to rent a movie from the iTunes Store on your computer

Learn about How to rent a movie from the iTunes Store on your computer

HT1390 I rented a classic movie through iTunes - it stopped and now says 103 hours to download, - 24 hours after I rented it.  Oddly enough, I rented a modern movie in HD with no issues and it streamed instantly.  What's wrong with your classic movie catalog?

What's wrong with your classic movie catalog?  Modern HD movies download and stream with no problem ( I assume these are a LOT of data ) yet movies from 1953 are non-HD and need 153 hours to download on a 24 hour rental.... and even then fail miserably after 20 minutes.  What are you streaming these movies from ?  286 PC's from the 1980's?
