To do this you will need to create a Youtube account and then go to the movie section of the YouTube website, this can be found on the left-hand sidebar in red, under Best of YouTube. When you click on this icon a new search menu will appear into which you can type the name of the movie you wish to purchase. Movies will be listed by genre and you can choose to browse freely through each category to find a movie or use the search bar if you already know the name of the film you want to see.
