Renting Movies

How do you rent movies? Blockbuster? Netflix? Redbox? A local store? Why did you choose that? Just really curious. Blockbuster has really gotten under my scare with getting rid of the 'no late fee' thing.

  • We use netflix and LOVE it!! My husband and I each have our own lists and it's great that the movies come so fast. We have done redbox a few times when my DH works the midnight shift and wants a few movies to take along but Netflix is our number one way to get movies.

  • We use NetFlix and we have Satellite so we can record a lot of our favorite movies and burn them to DVD for our OWN use, of course! LOL :o)

  • We use netflix because you can watch so much through instant watch.

  • We use netflix and it works for us. I get the dvds and he watches the instant streaming. I hate havin to go the store to physically pick out movies and then waiting 20 mins to check them out.

  • When we got satellite, it was with the thought that we wouldn't spend the money on renting any more. There aren't usually movies that we are willing to pay for on satellite, but maybe once or twice a year we pay a per movie fee to watch one.

  • We usually see what's On Demand from our local cable provider. Otherwise we use Redbox

  • We use Netflix for the most part. Occasionally we will rent from Redbox or the new Blockbuster Kiosks.

  • Cool. We use Netflix now. I love the instant viewing this. I can play WoW and watch movies all at once, lol. It also has such a bigger selection than my local Blockbuster. But I am going to finish using up all my free rentals at Blockbuster since I was/am part of their rewards program.
