    Some people think that iTunes is only for Apple users but the truth is, it's a universal app for everybody since you can also install it on your PC that runs on Windows and it just makes it one of the best ways to rent movies online! In terms of catalog, it carries a lot of popular titles just as Amazon Prime Video does. You can watch the movie for 48 hours after renting it!

    While we all know Netflix as a streaming giant that has become part of our daily lives, did you know that it still delivers DVDs up to date? And yes, you can expect DVDs in your mails when you pay a separate subscription for a DVD plan. Upon subscribing, it will let you rent one (or two) disc at a time depending on the premium you are getting. If that doesn't make Netflix one of the best movie renting apps out there, we don't know what. Try it today!

  2. 3Redbox

    Even before Redbox started offering free access to stream live television, it really started as a movie-renting company. And this isn't your typical movie-renting app that lets your 'borrow' something digitally because you can actually rent and pick up movies at certain Redbox stall nearby you. Movies are available in DVD format, or if you fancy HD ones, they also offer 4K UHD. How cool, right?

    4Amazon Prime Video

    Amazon Prime Video is classic. So much so that its name speaks for itself. If you subscribe to the Amazon Prime service, you actually a lot of bang for your buck since you get a bunch of free movies. But since you are here to scout for the best movie rental services, Amazon Video still holds a place in everyone's mind. As usual, you have 48 hours to finish the video you are renting.

  2. 5FandangoNOW

    Folks, don't mix this up with Fandango where you used to purchase your tickets to the movies. FandangoNOW is a digital entertainment portal where you can actually rent movies online and watch them later, depending on your availability. Watch out for discounts because some people were able to avail of the 20% rental discount after creating a new account.

  3. 6Vudu

    5

    At its price point, Vudu is on par with the other best movie rental services, and that just means they are not offering movies at exorbitant prices. We personally recommend you trying this app if you love movies in the 2000s era. By the way, Vudu is owned by Walmart so you can be sure of its authenticity.

    7HBO

    4

    Okay, so HBO doesn't necessarily let you rent movies online. But here's the thing, when you subscribe to the Amazon Prime Video premium, it lets you access some HBO shows along with the movies you rent on Amazon. So it's like hitting two birds with one stone.

  5. 8Google Play Movies & TV

    4

    Just like iTunes, Google Play Movies & TV isn't just for Android users. iPhone (or iPad) users may also opt to resort to this app for their movie rental needs. For Apple users out there, did you know that when you are signed in on your YouTube app, it lets you find your purchased movies via Google Play Store? Try it to believe it.

    "HBO has a great app for movies and shows, I love that its available as a stand alone service now. I had gotten rid of my cable a long time ago so missed a lot of HBO shows and then I was so excited to find it as a stand alone service, I immediately bought a subscription and downloaded the app for my devices so I could binge watch 6 seasons of Game of Thrones and all the great movies I've missed over the years. HBO is the best."

    "I remember when the first Redbox kiosk appeared at my local 7/11. It was the highlight of my week to pick up some gas-station chili dogs, an ice-cold Big Gulp, and check the Redbox for the latest in last-year's releases. Good times, and now you can relive those days from the comfort of your own home and the convenience of a mobile app!"

    "Prime video is much like other video services. It is about $10 a month which isn't bad and there is a pretty good selection. The originals are pretty good but the rest of the selection isn't anything amazing. I think Netflix or even HBO is a better value but this might be worth it for you."

    "This is not the best apps to rent or buy movies for streaming. It has a weird UI and is not reliable for saving your movies. There are much better options out there."
