Can I watch a downloaded movie i have purchased from the iTunes store on my iPad on an airplane without wifi?

I downloaded a movie from iTunes, started watching it at home with wi-fi access, kept it running as I drove away from home. As soon as I was away from wifi the movie stopped. I've also tried starting the movie on my iPad with wifi turned off, and it won't work. I notice conflicting answers to similar questions. If I can watch a downloaded movie without internet access (wired or wifi), exactly how do I do it?
