Best Way to Watch iTunes Rental Movies on Airplane


For many people, flying is common, and for some of us, it is even a necessity. But one thing never seems to change—how to spend all those long, boring hours on the plane. You can only eat so many peanuts and listen to so many people snoring. Or you can choose from the small selection of in-flight movies, but if you prefer to rent an iTunes movie for watching on an airplane, or somewhere out in the wilderness away from cellular towers, you can download them locally to your device prior to the day of your trip.


When you rent a movie on your iOS device from the iTunes Store it goes directly to the cloud. You need to download the entire movie to your iPad or iPhone in order to watch it on the plane in offline mode. However, for iTunes rentals, you only have 30 days from the time of rental to watch the movie, and once you start watching the movie, you have 48 hours to finish watching it. Is there a better way to enjoy iTunes rentals on Airplane offline without limitation?
