If you’re a fan of renting movies, then the new VidAngel TV app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick is one worth checking out. VidAngel is a streaming movie platform that sells movies for $20 each. You then have the option to sell back your purchased digital movies for store credit. VidAngel will credit you $18 for HD movies and $19 for SD movies if they’re sold back within 24 hours, which essentially translates to a $1-$2 rental fee per 24 hours. The service also has TV shows available for the same exact pricing, but on a per episode basis.
The biggest downside to the service is the initial $20 investment required to start using the service. Since you’ll receive $18 or $19 in credit back after returning your first purchase, depending on if you opt for SD or HD streams, each subsequent pseudo rental will only charge your credit card $1-$2 dollars. The service also offers to filter things like violence, profanity, and sexual content, but you can choose to watch all content unfiltered.
