I have a standard Galaxy S3. I have rented and downloaded Movies from Google play before however now it is saying:

Downloads aren't supported on rooted devices (error 44)

However my S3 is not rooted. All software is update to date. I have cleared the cache but this does not solve the issue.

A lot of people seem to be having problems with Google Play Movies. If you have a look on the play store page there are a lot of people complaining that the app is buggy.

Lots of people have fixed issues by uninstalling and reinstalling, it may not help but it's worth a try.

This resolved the issue, although also required a restart. – John Oct 24 '12 at 15:09
