    "The download time depends on the speed of your Internet connection."

    This was the generic non-answer from the itunes site. In plain truth, when I downloaded the older John Wayne version of "True Grit", the actual download time from the iTunes store was longer than the actual movie, about two hours with my broadband high speed AT&T internet connection at 6AM on a weekday morning.
    Does everybody have this problem, or am I missing some way to do this much faster?

    There have been some recent threads on hear about speed of connection, it generally appears to just need a tweak of your router settings....a quick forum search should find the answer you are looking for, at least it will tell you if you are running as fast as you should be.

    My broadband is only 2.5 Mbps but it takes 3-4 hours for a standard, non-HD (high definition) movie.

    I leave it going overnight!!

    I need to move to Singapore - I can only dream of 15 Mbps.....in fact, I'm lucky to get the 2.5 Mbps that I do get, as I live in a remote rural area...so I guess I shouldn't complain....:)

    How long does it take you to download a movie?

    Thanks for all the replies. At least now I know I'm not doing something wrong. My speeds vary from 2.45 to about 4.67 on the best days. Next time I want to download a movie, I'll just start it before I go to bed.
    I got a couple hints from my ATT website. Clear the browser cache, and connect directly to the router. I'll see if that helps, too.
