The Windows Store offers a wonderful selection of content that you can buy or rent and play on your computer. Purchasing video involves making your selection and providing payment information to make your purchase.

Once you find a movie you want, click on it.

Click the Buy button. (If you wanted to rent the movie, you’d click the Rent button at this point.)

Depending on whether you’re signed into your Microsoft account, you may be prompted to enter your password and asked whether you want to be asked for your password whenever you make a purchase; click Next.

In the screen that appears, if you haven’t provided payment information to Microsoft before, click Change Payment Options and add a credit card. Click Next.

If you’re renting, you may be asked to choose a viewing option, such as HD or SD, download or streaming, and click Next.
