    Apple TV to Mac
    If you rent a movie on Apple TV, can you watch the movie on a Macbook?

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    ? Never tried.

    Why not just rent it on your Mac to start with if that's where you want to watch it?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Actually I started watching the movie on on my HDTV, later I wanted to continue watching on my macbook. Home share will go from PC to TV but Apple TV does not seem to be available on mac?

    Unfortunately I don't think you can. I understand that rentals are not transferrable between devices and you will have to pay another rental.

    It is however different for movies that you buy.

    You can buy movies and TV shows on the Apple TV , or you can buy on your Mac or other iOS device and later watch on your Apple TV.

    If you have an iCloud account, you can purchase TV shows and movies directly from the Apple TV (3rd Gen)—and later download and watch them on your other iCloud-enabled devices.

    Apple - iTunes - Inside iTunes - Movies now available on iCloud.
