Frequently Asked Questions About Rentals

Choose an option below to learn more

Do I have to watch my movie right away?

Not at all! Find a good movie while at work and want to check it out at home? Once you've rented your movie, you'll see the options to Watch Now or Watch Later. Choose Watch Later to start your movie at a different time. For more on how long you'll have to watch your movie, see How long do I have to watch my movie? below.

My device doesn't have a Rentals tab, what can I do?

If the Sling TV app on your device doesn't have a Rentals tab, you can rent your movie on a different device that does offer rentals. Once you've rented your movie, choose the option to Watch Later. If you go back to the original device, you'll find your rented movie under the Rented ribbon on the My TV screen. 

Can I lock purchases?

Absolutely! Make sure that movies aren't rented accidentally by locking purchases using the Parental Controls feature in your SLING TV app.
