Rent for 48 hours
Rakuten TV offers you two ways to watch our content - buying and renting. For contractual obligations with our distributors, some movies are only available to rent and others are only available for purchase. In most cases, however, both options exist.
If you decide to rent a movie, it will be available in your "Library" folder for 48 hours starting from the moment you rent it. You can watch rented content as many times as you want within the 48 hour rental period. Your "Library" folder is located in the upper right-hand corner of the homepage. You must be signed in to your Rakuten TV account to see your "Library".
Purchase for unlimited viewings
If you decide to purchase a movie or TV series, the content will be available in your "Library" folder for at least 3 years. If the studios allow us, we will of course make the content available even longer.
At the moment, for technical reasons, it is not possible to download your purchased content for offline viewing. You can also not download it to the hard drive of your computer or to a DVD disc. Nevertheless, you can access your purchased content easily and stream it as many times as you want. Your "Library" folder is located in the upper right-hand corner of the homepage. You must be signed in to your Rakuten TV account to see your "Library".
Renting or buying a movie or TV series on Rakuten TV means that you will have this content available to you from any device you have linked to your Rakuten TV account. From your "Library" folder you will always be able to access your Rakuten TV content no matter what device you are purchasing or renting from.
