xbox video title on WP8 device

Hi - has anyone tried to play an xbox video title on their Windows Phone 8 device yet - I am trying and I get an error on the device that says 'We are unable to confirm the media usage rights for this content'.


I downloaded the title using the xbox video app on my Windows 8 PC. Then using the Windows 8 / Phone 8 Companion Application synced the title to my WP8 device. This all worked fine. Except when I actually try to view the video on the phone - I get the above error.


I also have the phone configured with the same Live ID that I used to purchase the content. So - I would expect this fairly straight forward user case to work - but it does not - which is pretty frustrating to say the least.


Ant ideas ?
