    Subscription services give you unlimited access to a TV/movie content library for a monthly or annual fee. Rent or buy services let you purchase individual movies and shows as a one-time purchase. Rentals expire after a predetermined time, while purchases are added to your account for repeat viewing. Free-to-air aka catch-up services let you watch broadcast content after it's aired for free. Some of these services also offer online-only content similar to streaming companies.
