Rent or buy the best entertainment

Searching for titles...

Searching for movies on Rakuten TV is easy. All you have to do is enter the title (or keywords from the title) of the movie you want to see in the search bar located in the upper right-hand side of the webpage.

You will also find that our selection of movies is broken down into categories for easy browsing. If you scroll over the “Movies” tab at the top of the screen, a drop down menu will appear where you will see movie genres as well as special collections.


48 hour rental...

When you decide on a movie or TV series episode, you have two purchasing options. You can either rent the item or buy it. For contractual reasons with some of our distributors, some movies are only available to rent, while others may only be available to buy. In the majority of cases, however, both options are available to you.

If you choose to rent a movie, it will be available in your Library for 48 hours starting from the moment you confirm the rental. You are now free to watch the movie instantly as many times as you want within the 48 hour rental period. The “Library” button is located in the upper right-hand corner of the home page and is only visible when you have logged in to your Rakuten TV account with your username and password.


Buying movies and unlimited viewings

Buying a movie you’ll be able to access the content by streaming during an unlimited period of time, as long as the rights are still available for Rakuten TV and with no limit as to the number of viewings.

In addition, Rakuten TV may provide only for selected content a download option in which case the compatible devices will be expressly indicated next to the content.

If for any reason the content you bought is going to be withdrawn from our service, we will notify you in advance and will offer the possibility to download it and keep a permanent copy on your device.



Rented or purchased TV series and movies become available on any compatible device paired to your Rakuten TV account. All your content is accessible on your Library regardless of the platform where you made the purchase or rental.
