    I was looking at renting a few movies for an upcoming trip (so the kids have something to watch). When I look at the restrictions on the rentals i dont think I'll be renting from itunes. You can keep a movie for up to 30 days before watching but can only watch it in a 24 hr period?
    That's not very convenient. If I rent a movie and the kids watch on the plane, then I can only watch it again until the next day?:(

    Personally I don't care for the restrictions either so I just don't rent. There are several free tv episodes and movies on iTunes though. I just got the first episode of Planet Earth HD for free. I usually will buy or use Netflix though. No renting for me.

    I have had a similar experience with rental so I choose to purchase them in Itunes on my host computer, then sync them to the IPAD. They show up in the videos application and the wife can watch them at her leisure.

    You can get TV shows for $2-3 each, down load them to Itunes and then sync them to the IPAD and they can watch them as long or as often as they wish.

    There are ways of importing standard DVDs into Itunes as well. Basically any video that you can get into MPEG4 and is less than about 2MB can be imported into Itunes and then synced to the IPAD or AppleTV for later viewing.

    Sincere,

    Not directly, but apps like Handbrake can quickly convert your DVDs to import into iTunes. I've done this frequently for the kids so that we do not need to carry the DVDs with us on trips. I'll load them on my MacBook Pro for hotel room viewing. Now I can throw them on my iPad.

    I rented a .99 movie but have not transferred to my iPad yet. I'm not crazy about the 24 hour issue. Going to load my fav DVD to iTunes and watch them if need on a longer trip, or for the kids.
