Do I need wifi to view a rental movie?

    As long as it's been fully downloaded then you shouldn't need to be online in order to then watch it.

    Apparently there is a major bug with the rental movies that prevent any movie from being played unless it is on wifi. DONT BUY ANY ITUNES RENTAL MOVIES.

    Does it then disappear for iTunes on the computer? A rental only lives on one device unlike purchases

    Yes the rental disappeared from iTunes when transferred.  There were no interruptions or error messages.  In one case I was able to start the movie in a wifi zone and then when I tried to finish the movie 1 hour later on the plane, nothing but error messages.  ITunes and device had the latest updates.  It has happened on both an iphone and ipad.
