Apple TV can wirelessly synchronize with iTunes libraries and connect to your television and stereo system. You can transfer iTunes movies and videos (and other content) to your Apple TV. Videos you have purchased will show up in "Movies" on your Apple TV. This way, you don't have to watch your iTunes purchases on your computer — you don't even have to have your computer turned on at all.
Unfortunately, Apple has not made playing of rented movies that easy. Of course, you can rent a movie directly from the iTunes Store on Apple TV. However, movies rented on your Apple TV are not transferable to any other device and can only be viewed on your Apple TV. And for iTunes rentals, it's also inconvenient due to rental expiration and viewing limits. How to play iTunes rentals on Apple TV? Is it possible to keep iTunes rentals forever?
