How to rent videos on Amazon Prime Video

The process to rent a video is the same whether you're using the web site, a mobile app, or the Prime Video app on a smart TV or streaming device. And no matter where you rent it, you can watch the video on any device.

1. Start by opening the Prime Video website and logging in or starting the Prime Video app on the device of your choice.

2. Find the show or movie you want to watch. You can browse Prime Video's categories or use the search tool to find videos by name, genre, actor, or director.

3. On the video's details page, choose the display quality you want to rent. You can sometimes select 'More purchase options' to see additional choices, which might include standard definition (SD), high definition (HD), and 4K UHD. Higher quality rentals usually cost a little more.

4. If you've enabled a Prime Video PIN, you need to enter your PIN to complete the purchase and confirm you want to rent the video.

As soon as you choose a video, it's rented and available for immediate viewing.

Two ways to start watching a video you've rented

  • Choose 'Watch Now.'
  • Click 'My Stuff' and find the movie in the list of videos you have purchased or rented. On some smart TVs and streaming media players, this might be called 'Purchases and Rentals.'
