Gone are the days of renting videos from your local Blockbuster or even waiting for your Netflix DVDs to arrive in the mail. These days, pretty much everything you want to see is available to watch immediately online through a number of platforms. Even YouTube has gotten into the entertainment rental and sales game, with the video platform offering up thousands of movies and TV shows for short-term rental or permanent purchase. If you want to buy a movie on YouTube —because let's be honest, sometimes 48 hours isn't enough time to watch "Bridesmaids" on repeat three dozen times—doing so is a simple and straightforward process. Once purchased, your movies will be stored in your YouTube Library and you can watch them at any time. Here's how to get started. Use the search bar at the top of your screen to type in the name of the movie you want to buy. From the list of search results, select the full-length movie to see purchasing options. You will know you're looking at the official version of the film as a small box will appear to the right of that result telling you the lowest available prices.
