I never buy a DVD unless I have seen the movie. And I can't afford many, as I prefer music toys.
I RENT DVD's from NETFLIX.comNetflix website
They have tens of thousands of DVD's.
1) Join. I pay $25 a month for "four out". "Out" means in the mail or in your possession.
2)Search through their site (it ain't easy, lotsa stuff) and fill your
"Rental Queue". Just browse, click on "RENT" and it goes in your "queue". You can go to the queue, display it, reorder it, etc.
3)They will send them out off of the top of your queue automatically. I have 4 out setting.
4) They come in the mail in a little red envelope. You tear off the cover and it becomes the self postaged return envelope! No cost for shipping! You can keep the DVD as long as you want, no return period or fees. As long as you pay your monthy bill, via credit card on file, they will keep you with 4.
5)Watch it, put it in envelope, and into the mailbox. When they
get it, they will send the next DVD in your queue, if available.
6)You can even put movies in theaters in your queue, and they will be placed in your rental queue when released in DVD.
I watch about 8-10 DVD's a month, for $25. If you watch them right away, you can do more than that. You can also go up to 8 "out". Costs more though.
They have a lot of the Original Avengers (Diana Rigg), so I rent those, and many movies. Today I got "Evolution" and "Scary Movie 2" in the mail.
If you want, you can purchase the DVD at the push of a button. Have not done that. And I don't think it comes with a real case.
Have no idea how that works.
They have the system down pat. Really well organized outfit. Very impressive. Much better selection than any local rental place, or sales place.
They also keep a large database of user reviews, and you can rate and/or review the movie yourself.
I love it.
