Movies on Xbox Live

When streaming movies from Xbox Live, does it tend to require much buffering? I have never 'rented' a movie from the Video Marketplace before, and was wondering if it was possible to stream the entire movie without buffering every 5 mins or is it better to download the movie and watch it another time?

It all depends on your internet connection speed, if you have an alright connection speed, then it won't buffer, but if you have a rather low end connection, then it might.

Low end connection speeds are usually encouraged to rent with a low quality setting.

You could also select to download the movie entirely before watching it. Just make sure you don't start watching it, as this will activate the 24-hour timer on watching a movie. If you don't start watching, you have (I believe) 14 days to start watching it.
