DVDs are items in Persona 5.
The protagonist can rent DVDs at Rental Shop Scarlet on Shibuya's Central Street, having to pay a small fee for each rental. The protagonist needs to have a CRT Television (and a DVD Player, which comes with the TV when bought) in their attic in order to watch them. All DVDs require two time slots to be finished. Finishing the DVDs will reward them with two or three points of a specific Social Stat, with the exception of Knowledge.
The protagonist needs to return each separate DVD seven days after its renting. If the protagonist returns a movie late, he will be charged with additional fees. For every day, regardless of whether the protagonist has any free time or not, ¥300 will be added to the overall pay.
One strategy to avoid additional fees is to watch them during missions, as the protagonist is almost always free during that time. Otherwise, it is recommended to watch them as early as possible. Paying attention to story cues can help as well, as school and the Phantom Thieves' agenda might help forecast when and for how long they'll be busy.

Persona 5 Royal
In Persona 5 Royal, the rental system has been replaced: the protagonist now has to pay for an annual subscription, with the price of ¥4,800. Doing so will grant them access to all the DVDs for the rest of the game. In addition, the availability dates for the original DVDs have been shifted, and each DVD can only give two points.
If the protagonist reads the book The Craft of Cinema, from then on he'll gain a bonus stat point when watching DVDs.
