Apple is advertising that you can rent movies right from the ATV on your TV set. I up graded tp Version 2 and when I go to movies I do not see interface to rent the movie. All I see are movie trailers and My Movies ( which are ones I bought and downloaded thru iTunes). What am I missing here? How do you guys rent movies?
Thanks,
JDB

    you must be in country that doesn't have rentals yet then.
    only US has rentals at the moment.

    you have a problem with your itunes account then.
    the rentals are tied to your itunes account, sounds like your itunes account is not registered to your state/country properly.

    get that fixed and appletv will show the rental options

    go and recheck your address details.. specifically the state field.
    even if it is correct.. reselect your state from the list and save.. then try it again.
