When you first rent a movie on Amazon, you’ll have 30 days from the time of purchasing the rental to actually watch it. However, once you press play on the movie, you’ll then have only 48 hours to fully watch the film.
Once you’ve pressed play, you will be able to watch the movie as much as you want. There’s no limit! For these 48 hours, it’s basically as if you own the film. You can fast forward, go back, and rewatch the film to your heart’s content.
Therefore, there’s no restriction on how often you can watch a film during the rental process. Rewatch it as much as you can!

Once these 48 hours are up, your rental will no longer be watchable. If you want to watch the movie again, you’ll have to buy or rent the film again.
