    It does, IF you are downloading the movie from Apple's servers. If you've already downloaded the movie to a local device (computer/iPhone/iPad) and you're playing it from that device, then it will not use the Internet.

  • Yes, it does. As Apple TV does not cache purchases on the device, it uses an internet connection to stream movies to your device.
