DVDhype: The Netflix of Canada

If you are a novice when it comes to online movie rental, welcome to DVDhype: The Netflix of Canada. DVDhype is extremely similar in nature to its American counterpart, Netflix. The basic process is simple: First, you will go to a website (in this case, and pick the movies you wish to view. In the next couple of days, you will receive the movies via regular postal mail. When you have finished watching the movies, simply slide them back into the postage-paid envelope and drop them off at the nearest mailbox for pick-up. That's all there is to it!

Regardless of similarities, there are a few major differences between the American and Canadian companies. Netflix is approximately five dollars per month cheaper than DVDhype. However, while Netflix only allows each subscriber to have three movies out at a time, DVDhype allows consumers in rural areas or other areas where mail might run slowly to have up to five DVDs out at a time for no additional cost in order to prevent these people from running out of movies.

In the end, the final decision will be based on locaton rather than the merits of the respective programs. Obviously, Canadian residents should choose DVDhype while residents of the United States would pick Netflix. Either way, online DVD rental is becoming the new trend in entertainment, so don't be afraid to try the free trial that both companies offer if you think you might be interested. Happy viewing!
