In addition to the Apple TV+ subscription service, Apple TV provides Roku users with the ability to buy or rent from a library of thousands of movies and TV shows, including current titles like "The Lion King," "Toy Story 4," and "Spider-Man: Far From Home." Prices vary - those movies can be purchased for $19.99 or rented for $5.99, while other titles, such as "Rocketman" have a purchase price of $9.99. As an example of TV show prices, "Fargo" can be purchased for $2.99 per episode or $24.99 for a full season.

Nearly two dozen are currently available, including heavy hitters HBO, Showtime, Starz, and Cinemax. Other services include Tastemade, PBS Living, Acorn TV, and Livetime Movie Club.
