You have 30 days to start watching a movie you rented from the iTunes Store, and 24 hours in the US (48 hours elsewhere) to finish watching the movie once you've started it. You can watch a rented film as many times as you want within the 24-hour. The movie will disappear from your iTunes library when your rental time has expired.
