Believe they are in a subfolder of the iTunes Music folder called 'Movies'

~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Movies in OS X. Probably somewhere similar if you're running Windows.

Thanks.
Have looked in all those folders. C:/Users/My Name/My Music/iTunes - nothing!

Right mouse click on one of the movies in iTunes and select "show in windows explorer"....you will then see where they are.  Assuming your reference to 'PC' meaning a Windows OS.

If there's a "download" option then you've probably been streaming them. Once downloaded you'll be able to find the files. Bear in mind that the latest models of Apple TV (the ones that fit in your hand) don't have a hard drive anymore so it's all streaming, either from Apple or from one of your computers.

So are we saying that the purchased movie is not stored on the PC - it is downloaded each time you want to view it?!

If you buy through iTunes then it'll download it. If you buy on Apple TV then it has to stream it because there's no hard drive to download it onto. Your iTunes account is then flagged as having bought that movie, so it shows up in your movie list (and you can download it onto your computer with right-click > Download).

I'm sure Windows comes with this, like, search function for those times you might want to find a file.

Ok I think a few of us have learnt a few things here!
I was probably being naive to think that buying a movie via Apple TV that the software would have enough brains to know that iTunes was on the same network and simply store it there in the first instance? It should be able to do that instead of using valuable Internet bandwidth and then want to download it anytime it was being viewed again.
So the message at this stage (well until Apple gets it sorted) is to not download movies you want to purchase via Apple TV but via iTunes - correct?

Interesting post. I've book marked it as I am looking at getting a Apple TV. At present they seem to be the only legit online movie rentals in NZ that do HD and have a relatively good selection.

One question. Is the Apple TV box keyed to any account or can you change these around to other house / account??




Regards,
