Can I rent an HD movie from iTunes, and watch on my HDTV WITHOUT AppleTV?

If I get a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable, and connect my MacBook Pro (mid 2009) to my HDTV, can I watch HD Movies that I rent from iTunes on my TV without purchasing an Apple TV? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

So I'm not at all sure why you ask the question then, you clearly know something that I nor Apple don't.

  • How can I rent a movie from iTunes and watch it on my MacBook w/o being connected to internet?

    Trying to figure ot how to rent movies from iTunes and watch w/o being connected to web. The dude at the apple store said that when I download it I can designate if I want it downloaded to my device (ie: MacBook) or my Cloud...but I don't see that option being given. Any help? Traveling Tues and I'd like to get a few movies set for my trip.

    Just sync your iPad.

  • Can't rent or buy movies from iTunes

    Rant On:
    I am completely frustrated and angry about how iTunes is supposed to rent or allow purchase of movies.  I have not had one movie rental out of several tries that went successfully without having to contact Customer Service and complain.  I purchased "Looper" & watched it on my iTV over the holidays, and now it cannot be played on either my Mac Mini or loaded to my iPhone 5. 
    The movie appears in my iTunes Movie library on my Mac Mini.  When I tried dragging it to my iPhone, I got a strange error message that the movie was still "in the cloud" and wasn't available until I download it.  I can't see any way to accomplish this. Once I tried moving it the first time to my iPhone, it now won't let me move it again at all.
    If I go to the movie on iTunes from my iPhone, I see a "Download" button but the movie won't download since it's > 50 MB.  When I go to iTunes from my Mac Mini, it only offers me the choices to rent or buy the movie again. 
    Just incredibly frustrating.  I definitely DO NO RECOMMEND anyone trying to rent or buy movies from iTunes!!!

    Answers can only be as helpful as the details provided, and none have been given here.  What did you do to try to buy or rent something?  What happened when you tried?  Did you get an error?  If so what was it.  Just posting "did not work" is not going to get you very far.

    Hi Niel.  Can you be move specific for those of us not tech savy?   1 - Can you provide steps to back up the library?  2 - How do you organize the library?  3 - When you move the entire iTunes folder, does it include iTunes paid for music along with downloaded music from CDs?  Thanks

  • Can you download movies into iTunes then watch them via airplay without an internet connection?  We want to be able to watch them in our RV that does have an internet connection always.

    If you want to watch on your iPad screen, you don't even need airplay.
    If you want to watch on a television screen, you need an AppleTV.
    In both cases...
    If the movies are purchased, there is no need for an Internet connection to the outside world.  If they're rented, you need an Internet connection for the first minute or so that Apple knows that you're watching the movie.  I do not know if a rented movie can be stopped and restarted without an Internet connection.

  • I rented a movie from iTunes and it is on my IPad.  I wanted to watch it on AppleTV and there is no airplay icon showing up on the movie

    I rented a movie from ITunes and it is on my IPad.  I wanted to watch it on Apple TV however there is no airplay ap showing up.  What should I do

    That won't be possible. You can only view a rental on the device used to do so, unless it is done via computer (in which case you can stream using home sharing)

    Hi, Kenny. 
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities. 
    There are a couple things that I would recommend trying.  Try closing all open applications and power cycle the device.  Next, go through the section labeled Troubleshoot issues on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch in the second article below.  If the issue persists, try completely signing out of the iTunes Store on the iOS device and sign back in.  Be sure to test downloading an application after each step. 
    iOS: Force an app to close

    She must have signed into her own Apple ID on your iPad in order to sync her content from iTunes so try this and see if it works.
    Settings>Store>Apple ID. See if your ID is showing in there and if it isn't - tap on her ID, sign out and then sign in with yours.
    You should not be syncing to to different iTunes libraries. The iPad can only sync with one iTunes library without erasing the the content on it if you decide to sync to another iTunes library.

  • Remove movie from iTunes *and* disk

    Hi,
    I add movies to iTunes which are stored on a network drive, and are not stored in the iTunes library.
    When I remove these from iTunes, it does not trash the file on the disk.
    Is there a simple way to remove the movie from iTunes, and trash the file, all in one go?
    At the moment I do the following:
    - ctrl-click
    - show in finder
    - trash file
    - remove movie from iTunes
    This is a tedious process, especially when I want to get rid of multiple movies.
    I could probably write a script to do what I want, but surely there's a way built into iTunes, and I just haven't found it yet.

    Beat you to it, but I'll give you credit anyway.
    For anyone else who's interested, this script seems to do the trick:
    http://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=deleteselectedfiles
    It's a bit slow though, and has too many dialogs for my liking, so I may edit it, to see if I can speed things up a bit.
    Edit: this script seems a bit quicker:
