    According to the WordReference Dictionary (above) it is

    noun
    2. a sum paid for the hire of equipment.

    The DVD being the "equipment" in this case.

    The phrase "for rent" has the meaning "available to be rented" where the latter usage is a verb. You get to have the DVD for some period of time in exchange for rent. That rent is a noun.
