There are a number of factors that determine what a rental costs, including how new the movie is, whether the movie has hit theaters or not, whether it's a special promotion, and if it's high definition or standard definition.
1. The latest movies: usually US$5.99-$6.99
2. Regular movies: $3.99-$4.99
3. Special promotions: $0.99
4. Movies currently in theaters/digital release only: $6.99-$9.99
