Am I missing something?  I purchased a movie rental through Itunes using my ipad.  Once the movie downloaded I assumed I could watch it on Apple TV.  But the movie is not showing up on the Apple TV.  I have Ituned open and home sharing is turned on.  Any clue what I"m missing?  Thanks

    You should be able to Airplay it to the AppleTV, but apart from rentals made in teh itrunes app, all others are tied to the device.





    Can I play my rental on more than one device?

    • If you download a rented movie on your computer: You can transfer it to a device such as your Apple TV (1st generation), iPhone, iPad, or iPod if it’s a standard-definition film (movies in HD can only be watched on your computer, iPad, iPhone 4 or later, iPod touch (4th generation or later), or Apple TV). Once you move the movie from your computer to a device, the movie will disappear from your computer's iTunes library. You can move the movie between devices as many times as you wish during the rental period, but the movie can only exist on one device at a time.
