What do you usually do on a long flight? Most people prefer to watch movies on airplane. Although there are some in-flight movies provided by the airline, they are just limited choices and may not be what you really interested in. It's a good idea to rent some iTunes movies before your trip.With the development of technology, some airplanes are now offering WiFi service during the flight, so of course you can watch whatever movies you want on your devices, let's say, a tablet. However, it is said that WiFi on airplanes is somewhat unstable, and what if the plane you take doesn't support WiFi?

Given that, in order to have a better viewing experience, download the movies offline seems to be a sensible thing to do. It's just, iTunes rentals only last for 30 days and they expire in 48 hours once you start to watch. If you are worry about not able to finish the movie in 48 hours due to the airsickness or jet lag, or you simply want to play iTunes rentals on non-apple tablet, please stay tuned with us.
