The Globe and Mail has learned the new service that offers rental services through its website is called Movie Rentals Canada.
The site has about 2,200 movies and TV shows available to rent and buy.
It has a mobile app that allows users to search for rentals in their area.
The app also allows users who have a movie rental account to set up their own rental company.
The Globe and News reached out to Movie Renters Canada for comment and will update this story if we hear back.
The service, which offers rentals for films ranging from horror to comedies, is part of a larger move by MoviePass to get people to buy movies online and rent them on demand, which is part the company’s strategy to compete with Netflix, which also offers a streaming service that includes movies for rent and buys them at the box office.
MoviePass says it’s trying to make renting more affordable for people who don’t have access to an internet connection or have no interest in renting movies.
Last month, the company announced it was launching a service in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Toronto.
Its first Toronto location is opening in June.
