Rented movies can be watched via your browser, or through dedicated Android phone and tablet apps. New release HD movies are $6.99; new release standard definition titles are $5.99; older library titles are $4.99 in HD or $3.99 in standard definition. Once you rent a movie, you have 30 days to start watching it, and then must finish watching within 30 hours. You can also download movies to your device, so you can watch them without a connection.
