More on Apple TV Time Limits
mikec said this in the locked thread.
My question is will the 30+24 model work (30 days to view, 24 hours to complete after starting).

I think Gruber linked to a story saying that if, within the 24hrs, you pause the movie, and the 24hrs expires, when you next go back you'll get a dialog that offers 2 choices: Delete and Finish Watching.
You can't cancel out, and if you reboot, the movie is deleted, but it is a beyond-24hr extension that looks supported (though currently unadvertised).

Now, if you want to cut and paste from Apple's site, and add "watch it as many times as you want (within 24 hours)", that's fine.
The general premise still stands...once you start, you have to "begin finishing" within 24 hours. Now obviously, there may be some unadvertised features at work. If Gruber's comments are right, then it's not quite the same constraint, but basically has the same final outcome.
But hey, you know why Apple has the 30+24 rule? It's due to SOX, of course! :-)

Yep, that's what I thought. Other people can be right but when I say the same thing, I am then wrong.
Damn right I cut it from Apple's site... but your damn wrong that I added anything to the quote. That last bit is on their site... you moron.
You see, it goes like this - I'll type slowly so you can understand it.
Apple says you can rent a movie and you then have 30 days to start watching it.
Once you hit Play, you then have 24 hours to finish it — or 24 hours to start it... as many times as you want.

Moron? More insults from you. Tsk, tsk. My fragile ego cannot keep taking such abuse,..
This is such a non-issue. I said the sky was blue. You said the sky was blue BLUE blue.
You are just picking a fight. The only moron here is the vapid bonk paste dumpster that didn't teach you integrity, and I pity you.
