Apple TV rental downloads
Now when I rent a movie from ATT uverse it plays immediately. With a recent HD rental it stated that the rental would be ready to view in 60 minutes. Why the delay?

Because you are actually downloading the video to your AppleTV. AT&T/Comcast have the movie ready to play via an OnDemand type system. In other words, you are accessing their HD for the movie instead of waiting for a transfer to finish.
