    why does watch time remaining go below the length of a movie

    Why is it your time to watch a movie go below the running time of a movie? I have something like 1 hour and 1/2 to watch a rental and the movie was like 1 hour and 40 minutes. So when I got to the last 10 minutes it end abruptly and said that if I wanted to keep watching I had to rent the movie again. What is the point of letting someone watch the movie past the length of the running time if you can't watch the hole thing?

    This sounds like the 24 hour limitation that you have after you start watching a movie. You have 24 hours to finish watching it. That's unfortunate but that's just the way it is. It doesn't make much sense for them to not let you see any of it if you have an hour left, even if there is 1:30 remaining. After all, you could theoretically fast forward through parts of it if you wanted to. The bottom line is that if you run out of time and want to watch the end of the movie, you will need to rent it again.

    At least now they have a discounted price for extending the rental. Originally you had to pay the full rental price again so it has improved. Just think of it as paying a late fee at Blockbuster (though I realize they don't do that so much any more and they give you a longer amount of time to watch your movie).

      Most movies have this but not all.

        Negative, I had not yet watched the movie when there was 1 and 1/2 hours left, I clicked watch and it didn't extend it to 24 hours instead when the 1 and 1/2 hours was up it interrupted the movie and said it was expired.

          Well it does look like something started that clock going though I won't begin to guess what that is. This is the first time anyone has mentioned a problem like this so I'm guessing it isn't common, regardless of what caused it.

            Which movie was it and on what day (and if you remember time) did you try to watch the movie.

            It is possible that you rented a movie where the rental window was about to expire and the day you watched it, the rental window ended.

              I was watching 13 Tazmati and it was on the day where I had 1 hour and 1/2 to watch it before the 30 day rental period was going to end. Then I clicked watch now and started watching it, then after I got almost to the end, paused it for 5 minutes or so to use the restroom, it said the viewing time has expired and I could extend it for 99cents.

                I see. It was the 30 day clock expiring, not the 24 hour one. Interesting situation. I would think that the 30 day window should be for when you have to start watching it and the 24 hour window should only start when you start the movie, even if you start it 5 minutes before the end of the 30 day window. But that's just common sense and may not be possible in reality.

                  Yes that was the impression I was under as well which is why I was surprised to see it end. I ended up extending because I really wanted to see the end, very good movie.

                    I guess you have a 30 day window to watch the movie not to start watching the movie.
