Viewing Pictures and Video in Windows 8.1

Buying or renting a video

To purchase or rent media from the Xbox Video store, you must have a valid form of payment on file. This payment is associated with your Microsoft account and can be configured in many ways. One way is to access the Settings charm while in the Video app and click Account. You can click Manage Payment Options to get started. However, if you don’t have any information on file and want to buy media here, simply follow the instructions and enter information when prompted. These steps assume that you already have payment information on file.
