    I rented a movie last night and it is waiting for WiFi to download. Any way to get the app to download via the cellular connection?

    a movie is usually quite large, 1Gb or higher. You're sure about using cellular?

    If this is for pc, what you could do is create a wifi hotspot using your cellular connection and use that.

    Sorry, guess I should have clarified, I rented the movie on my phone. Looking thru the app itself, there isn't anyway to change the download setting. I have the Store setting to allow apps to download over cellular, but it doesn't follow thru to the Movies and TV app.

    I think there's a global limit of about 200MB set by MS. I haven't seen a setting to get around that

    I couldn't even get the movie to download on my WiFi today. I'm now exploring the options to either use a public WiFi that may be faster than my home WiFi or contact MS and request a refund.
