The Growing Popularity of Renting DVDs Online

If you pay attention to popular trends and developments in technology, you have probably heard much talk about renting DVDs online. Online DVD rental services continue to grow in popularity and number, each new company trying to compete with and outdo the existing ones that have an edge of the market due to reputation and longevity of existence. However, in the midst of all the hype, you might be wondering exactly what these companies are all about and what renting DVDs online really involves. If this sounds like you, take a look at the information below.

Renting DVDs Online: What to Know

The development of renting DVDs online really diverges from traditional movie rental in a few crucial ways. Primarily, most (if not all) companies offering online DVD rental operate on a subscription basis. Customers sign up with the online rental company, pay a monthly subscription fee and receive the freedom to rent an unlimited number of DVDs each month. The companies offer customers added flexibility with their movie rentals by having no due dates or late fees. One important thing to note about these online rental companies is that most only offer DVDs for rent because they are easy and cheap to ship. Therefore, if you have yet to purchase a DVD player and still rent the older VHS versions of movies, renting movies online is not really a functional option.

Many of the larger companies, such as NetFlix or GamezNFlix, have very large selections of available DVDs—selections that often rival or surpass that of traditional movie stores since these online companies are not as constrained by space. This bigger selection gives customers more movies to choose from and a greater chance of finding a specific movie that grabs their interest.

Movies ordered through these online services arrive at the customer’s house by mail, usually within a week, depending on availability and standard company shipping times. Each movie includes its own postage-paid envelope so that customers can easily return the movie to the company when they are finished watching it and are ready for a new selection. Taking all of this information into account, it is now up to you to decide whether or not you want to try this innovative new service.
