Best sites to rent films

    Hey everyone, I've recently come to Ireland from the UK, and since I've arrived I've been struggling to find places where I can pay to rent (stream) films. I could usually find most films on Prime Video or Google Play back in England but the selection here seems a lot more limited, as half of them seem to have an "unavailable in your area" message, particularly on Prime.

    Are there any sites that you use for rentals that I might be missing?

    You tube movies - it’s usually 3.99 to rent and they have everything. More recently released films will be more expensive.

    That'll tell you where films are available and at what price. Super handy website, covers the likes of Netflix, Prime etc too

    Google Play still works here, although it’s being subsumed into YouTube Movies soon.

    iTunes works great if you have an Apple TV app on your tv or device.

    For smaller indie films you have IFI Player, Volta etc...

    I've been using Rakuten past couple of months as well Awards points a small discount for every movie you buy/rent also which is handy.
