    Hi mikentracy,


    Welcome to the Support Communities!



    The article below will provide an overview of the Movie rental process:


    iTunes Store: Movie rental frequently asked questions (FAQ)


    How many times can I view the movie?

    Once you start watching your movie, you can view the rented movie as many times as you wish within the 24-hour window.

    Is it possible you are trying to watch the movie again after this period?

    I hope this information helps ....

    Have a great day!

    Hi tracy,


    I do apologize that you are having issues with your movie rentals.  It does sound like you need to report the issue to the iTunes Store support team:



    How to report an issue with your iTunes Store, App Store, Mac App Store, or iBookstore purchase


    1. Find the email receipt for your purchase.
    2. Click Report a Problem under the app that is having the issue.
    3. When prompted, enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the item, then click Report a Problem.
    4. Click Report a Problem next to the item you are having an issue with.
    5. From the Choose Problem dropdown menu, choose the appropriate issue.
    6. Follow the onscreen instructions and—if prompted—type a description of the problem into the text field.
    7. Click Submit to have your issue reviewed.


    - Judy
