Have you tried restarting the Apple TV?
Unplug it from power rather than doing it from the menu. Let me know
Are you sure you purchased the movie using that account? Can you watch or listen to any other purchased items?
We have to start somewhere this is a process...
Please open iTunes on your computer can you watch the same purchased movie on the computer?
