    I am having the same issues. Apple TV will only play trailers and not the full movie. Very frustrating, I will give Apple a call later.

    Same problem here. All purchased movies just sit on "Loading...". This is extremely upsetting because almost all of my purchased movies are movies for my kids to watch. My kids are starting to get very upset as well.

    This issue is killing me.  I long for the days when I truly owned my media.  Can I PLEASE have a live person from Apple contact me???  I would like to get this solved ASAP, or better yet reimbursed for all of my purchased movies that I cannot access.

    Hi JohnStreet,

     

    My husband came up with a work around solution that might help you.  My husband selected the movie we wanted to watch and pressed play on the computer iTunes and let it play for a minute.  Then paused the movie on the computer and went downstairs and selected the movie on AppleTV.  You are prompted to resume or start the movie from the beginning and he selected resume and the movie starts working. 

     

    This is obviously not an ideal situation but at least you can watch something. 

     

    Hope this helps.

    Hi all, just got mine working with being pure stubborn!! Check your region in settings as mine had defaulted from uk to usa thus meaning no purchases would play. Working treat now

    I've had problems with this many times before. Every time restarting the Apple TV, resetting it, updating it, etc. have not worked. However, every time I've had this problem, signing out of my Apple ID and back in has worked without fail. If you encounter the problem again in the future, please give it a try; it always works for me.

    I'm having the same freaking problem. Was on The phone with Apple support 4 times. Restarted, reset, re-everything and nothing works. Everything on my Apple TV works fines except movies. The timeline sits there spinning forever and the movies never start. Today I took the unit to the store. They did a restore and completely killed the tv. Was disgusted that I went in with only iTunes not working and when they were done nothing worked. I was given a new 'refurbished' TV, brought it and nothing worked properly until it was done with 4 freaking updates which took over an hour. And again everything works except iTunes movies. Even the trailers crashed numerous times while playing. I can't believe that Apple cN't solve this issue.
