I just rented a movie on my iPhone, with the intention of watching it on my Apple TV . How ever when I go to the place where it says "check for rentals" it won't find it.  I have tried signing out and back in, it did not work.  What should I do?


iPhone 5s, iOS 7.0.4, Also Apple TV

Welcome to the Apple Community Vane_paranormal.

 

If you rent a movie on your phone, you have to watch it on your phone, likewise if you rent it from the Apple TV you will have to watch it there.

 

If you want to watch a rental on multiple devices, rent it from a computer.

    Thank you, I ended up having to rent it again.  This is poor design by apple, I will be billed twice for the same movie, it's really hard to get the family to all watch a movie on a phone. Integration of devices is what they advertise, however not what I paid for in this particular case.  But you info did help clear up my question, thanks again.
