what do u think about NETFLIX?

Postby liteonrules on Wed Dec 15, 2004 5:06 pm

i was thinking of using the online rental service NETFLIX. I joined MVP at HOLLYWOOD VIDEO for 14.99 a month but they never have the older movies i want.
1. How fast are they after sending back the movies you have watched/burned?
2. How statisfied or not statisfied are you with the service?

i can care less about the new rentals. i just want movies i can't get at rental places.

Suurrree.. You just don't want to get all embarrassed when you walk up to the counter with that adult flick. :wink: I'm totally kidding.

I love it. They have a distro in Minneapolis, I almost always receive the DVD's shipped from Minneapolis (99% of em') the next business day, very few the 2nd business day. They usually get me out a new DVD the same day that they get back the other one, again, usually 1 business day.

NetFlix, Blockbuster online and Walmart DVD online all have free trial periods. You should try them all for free then decide for yourself!

Boba_Fett, how many could you possibly get on the cheapest one dvd plan. It is like $4.95 or something per month. It is like you get it one day, ship it back the next and have another sent. Back & Forth.

Nevermind i am over at Netflix and it says the cheapest at $4.99 per month, you are limited to two dvd's per month, so this sux.

Unlimited one at a time is $9.99. It is a center in Hawaii and Alaska also. It is like 41 places they are at, Netflix and here is a map showing them.
