Would you like to watch a movie on Amazon, but you don’t want to pay the full price for purchase the movie? Does renting the movie sound like a better option? How long time does it take for a movie to change from “buy-only” to “available for rent” on Amazon?
This is a question lots of people ask themselves (and others), and even though there is no absolute answer, the majority of people agree on the fact that it takes about 2 weeks from a movie release on DVD until it is made available for rent to the general audience. How come? Why do we have to wait to rent the movie? It is probably to make sure that the biggest fanatics purchase the movie instead of renting it. If you are a big-time Star Wars fan who have waited for months for your new favorite to arrive, you do not want to wait two more weeks to rent the movie. No, you purchase the movie at the first possible moment.
Or, maybe you forgot to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the cinema. Now you have been waiting for it to come on DVD so that you can finally watch it. You will, of course, buy the movie instead of waiting for two more weeks. At least, that is my theory on why you have to wait approximately two weeks for a movie to turn available for rent and not for purchasing only at Amazon.com
