Renting movies through Apple's iTunes is another pay-per-view option to access the latest dramas, comedies, or TV shows. You can rent flicks and watch them on an iPhone, iPad, computer, or TV set using an Apple TV set-top box.
Apple lets you rent first-run movies the day they come out on DVD for $5 each, though most movies cost $3 or $4. TV shows are generally $1. As with Amazon, renting movies through Apple is a good option if you want the latest releases as soon as possible. There are thousands of movies available, though iTunes doesn't have as many indie flicks as Netflix streaming.
