    You have yo remember this is not true multitasking. This is a suspended state where the app architecture allows some apps to run in the suspended state.

    To answer your question.. No you can't watch a video until it finishes downloading. The final step to any iTunes purchase is to verify the tag information for the file. This includes title, author, genre etc. It won't show up on the iPod or video app until this info has been downloaded in the final step.

    actually I think it did still continue downloading in the background while I was doing other stuff. I guess I gotta be a little patient.

    well how to train a dragon is now downloaded and working well

    I just got the apple tv unit .. this airplay thing works great, am switching from iPad to tv and quality is great
