RENTALS & PURCHASES

Once you’ve rented a film and it becomes available, you have 30 days to watch it. Once you press play, the watch window begins and you have 72 hours to watch the film as many times as you like.

Yes, rentals can be paused and resumed within 72 hours of pressing Play.

You can still watch a film for the full 12-hour window, as long as you do not close the browser window.

No, all content related to your rental is only available within the rental period.

Bonus Content will not be available once a rental expires.

Yes. You can pre-order it now, but you won’t be able to watch it until the day it’s listed as available.

No.

You may cancel a pre-order within 24 hours of the film’s start date, or within 24 hours of initiating your rental.

It may be that you’re using a VPN (Virtual Private Network), which masks your IP address. Sometimes VPNs make it appear as though you are in another country. All of our films are geo-blocked so that they are only available to IP addresses in the U.S., so you’ll need to turn off or modify your VPN before proceeding.

We encourage that you view the trailer to test playback through our Digital Store.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

You can watch on PCs running Windows 7+ and Intel-based Macs running macOS 10.12+. You will need a broadband or fiber internet connection––dial-up will not work. You’ll find a complete list of requirements below.

Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer or Opera. We recommend using the latest version of your browser as earlier versions may not be supported.

MacOS 10.12 or later. Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera. We recommend using the latest version of your browser as earlier versions may not be supported.

Yes, you can watch content using Safari and this requires iOS 11.2 or later. We recommend using the latest version of your browser as earlier versions may not be supported.

Yes, you can watch content using Chrome and this requires Android 6.0 or later. We recommend using the latest version of your browser as earlier versions may not be supported.

Check your minimum system requirements above. We recommend that you update to the latest version of your browser. We use adaptive bitrate streaming, which means the streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed. For high-definition (HD) streaming we recommend VDSL, cable, or fiber connections as we cannot guarantee consistent HD streaming on ADSL.

Please ensure your system meets the minimum requirements. As an anti-piracy initiative, our Digital Store platform will not work if you have a video sharing program open. Please make sure you have completely closed down all applications that have the ability to record your screen. This includes, but is not limited to Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facetime, or any other screen recording programs. If you were hoping to join a friend virtually to watch a film together, please ensure that neither of you are using one of the above devices from the same device you are streaming your film from.

If your internet connection is poor or inconsistent you may experience problems during playback.

PROMO CODES

No. Our system does not support partial refunds.

Please do not. The promotional code you received is a benefit that doesn’t provide unlimited views.  Use the code responsibly – you may prevent someone from rightful redemption.

Please reach out to the partner that provided the code to you.
