Rent movies from the iTunes Store on Mac
Rent items from the iTunes Store using your computer
In the iTunes app on your Mac, click Store in the navigation bar.
Search for a movie you want to rent, then select it.
Click the Rent button (if you don’t see this button, the item isn’t available for rent).
The movie is downloaded to your iTunes library. A rented item expires 30 days after you rent it or 48 hours after you begin playing it, whichever comes first. Expired rentals are deleted automatically.
Note: Prices shown are for illustration purposes only. Actual prices and currencies vary according to item and country or region.
Transfer rentals from your iTunes library to your iOS device or Apple TV
In addition to downloading rented movies from the iTunes Store directly to a device, you can also transfer them from your computer to your iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, if your device can play the rented item. This is useful if you want to watch a movie on a device but aren’t connected to the Internet.
If you have iPhone 3GS (or earlier) or iPod touch (third generation or earlier), you can also transfer rentals from your device to your computer.
Connect your device to your computer.
In the iTunes app on your Mac, click the Device button near the top left of the iTunes window.
Select the rented item.
Note: Some movies in the iTunes Store are available for rent in HD-quality format. You can only transfer HD rentals to iOS devices that can display HD content.
For information about renting movies using your device, see the documentation for the device.
Note: These terms apply to U.S. rentals. Rental terms vary among countries or regions.
