Barbie has arrived on Plex.

In the words of the captivating, ageless Barbie we’ve all been (re)falling in love with, “This is the best day ever.” And that’s because today, in our quest to become the singular answer to all-things entertainment, we present to you an awfully familiar idea whose time has come around again: movie rentals.

As you know, we live to bring you all the entertainment you love on a silver platter (well, silver screen to be more accurate), and we’re excited to offer yet another way to instantly stream what you love. This also means you never, ever, ever have to leave Plexland, no matter what you want to watch. This is your home now, and it’s as real as it gets.

A Is for Aquaman, and A-List

Jason Momoa is just the beginning. We’ve got a red-carpet-tearing lineup of Tom Cruise, Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Timothée Chalamet, Anne Hathaway, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, and many more stars.

With Plex rentals, you can instantly stream the big, buzzy, brand-new titles from top studios, featuring top names—right here on Plex. Everything from the award season sensations (Barbie, Wonka) to blockbusters with a bang (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Expend4bles) and the latest indie darlings (Priscilla, Ferrari, Dream Scenario) to heroes of all sizes and species (Blue Beetle, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie).

Not to mention critically acclaimed stories, legendary directors, and movies you might have missed out on watching over the years—everything is ready to rent on Plex.

Leap right into rentals like Agent Hunt.

Show. Me. The. Rentals.

Ready to give it a whirl? First, make sure you’re signed into Plex. Next, head over to our rental library in Movies & Shows, make your selection, then rent directly on almost all your favorite platforms and smart TVs. We’ve listed them out here in our support article, in case you want to take a peek.

In the very slight possibility that your smart TV or device is not supported, you can always head over to the Plex web app using your phone, tablet, or computer, then go to the Movies & Shows tab on the left and choose the movie you want from Rentals. Voila, you’re all set. Once you rent the movie on the web app, you can watch it anywhere you’ve installed a supported Plex app. Yep, even on devices that don’t allow direct rentals on their platform.

One little thing though. Rentals are only available in the US right now. So to the rest of the world, our sincere apologies. We’ll definitely let you know if and when we roll out to other countries. 🤞

Nun’ as hard as watching The Nun II with the lights out.

I Feel the Need—the Need for Rentals!

Rentals are priced anywhere from $3.99 USD and up. (That’s less than a latte at your corner coffee shop. And let’s not even get into talking about gas prices.) Once you rent a movie, you’ve got 30 days to begin watching it. And when you do start playback, you have 48 hours to finish watching it (or rewatch it as many times as you want—we would too!). So if you need to take a break to let your heart stop pounding during the new Mission Impossible, we’re here for it.

Are You Ready to Be Entertained?

That’s pretty much it. Every day we’re adding new movies to our rental library. So take a peek, every time you get a chance. Not ready to rent? Just add it to your Watchlist on Plex for when you’ve got the time, or when it becomes available to watch (here or anywhere in the streaming universe.)

Go ahead, let your mojo-dojo-casa-house feel the power of your first Plex rental. Need even more info? The support articles below may hold the answer you seek.
