how do I access the rental movie I ordered on my ipad?


I ordered on rental movie.  Per the online info I can order and then watch it on my ipad by syncing.  I completed a synch.  Via istore I can see on the ipad that I ordered it (via order history).  But no where can I find the movie.  Time is ticking way! What's the solution?

iPad, iOS 4.3.3

    If you downloaded the movie in iTunes on your computer you have to "Move" the rental to the iPad. Copied from another thread ....


    To transfer a rented movie from iTunes, use the movies pane in iTunes. Rented movies transfer is at the top. You must have an Internet connection to transfer a rented movie. Select the "move" arrow in the direction you wish to transfer, and click the apply button at the bottom right. Rented movies can only exist on one device at a time, they do not sync like other video, but move from iTunes to the iPad.


    Movies will play in the videos app.

    Did you check under your video app, then click on the Movies icon uptop, it you don't see it then you need to sync your iPad again but this time make sure you have the movies check box selected in iTunes.
