Part 1. How Does iTunes Movie Rental Work?
Apple allows users to buy or rent movies from the iTunes Store or from Apple TV supported devices using their Apple account. Normally, an iTunes movie costs you approximately $2.99 - $6.99 for renting and $9.99 - $19.99 or so for purchasing. Also, each iTunes movie is provided two versions including an HD version and an SD version. HD is short for high definition while SD means standard definition. Both versions of iTunes movies feature subtitles, soundtracks, and so on. All your iTunes movie rentals stay on the Rentals tab of the Movies section of the iTunes Library or of the iTunes app. But macOS 10.15 or above version should go to the Apple TV app.
