On demand movies

Why are some on demand movies “buy” only. Why no rent option?

Re: On demand movies

You have to take this up with the channels that are offering the movie rentals and sales.  For the most part they don't own these movies, they only obtain licenses from the actual owners.  These licences determine what they can do with these offerings.
