A little confused on how to rent your movies on demand?

In the US, “on demand” usually means a title will be available to rent via your cable TV provider and most (but not necessarily all) of the following services: Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Vudu, Google, YouTube, Fandango, DirecTV, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Sony, Frontier, Redbox, and Verizon. Each movie’s availability varies by studio, but you can usually find them in the aforementioned services.
