If you compare the movie retrieval process today to what it was like 15 years ago, there are a lot of improvements and changes. Back then, if you wanted to buy a movie, you had to go to the store and buy a VHS tape. If you wanted to rent a movie, you had to go to a rental store and rent a VHS tape for a couple of days and then return it. There were very few options. Also, if the rental store didn’t have the movie, you couldn’t watch it, and there were plenty of movies the rental store didn’t have.
Today there are so many different choices. VHS tapes are no longer the way to go. Now we watch DVDs. If you want to buy a DVD, you can go to the store or shop online. You can also find many older movies that are now available on DVD. If you want to rent a DVD, you can go to the rental store, which is usually just blockbuster. I doubt you could find many if any of the old mom and pop rental stores that use to make up the majority of rental stores. You can rent them from Blockbuster and keep them for a while longer. They say there are no late fees, but if you keep a DVD for too long, they will just charge you for the DVD.
Another choice in renting is through Netflix or Blockbusters mail order process. You can subscribe to the program of either company, pay a monthly fee, receive DVDs in the mail, and mail them back when you are finished. When they receive the DVD you mailed back, they will send the next movie on your list. You can subscribe to get 1 DVD at a time, 2 at a time, or more. Blockbuster even allows you to return the DVD right to the store if you want. This is a great option for those who don’t want to have to drive out to the rental store all the time.
One problem with this type of renting is that if you only want to rent a movie on occasion, you have to wait for it to come in the mail, or if you don’t have any movies you feel like watching, you get sent a movie your not interested in and still have to pay the bill. This is where another renting option comes in, movie downloading. With programs like Cinema Now, you can download any movie you want that is available at your convenience. You don’t have to wait for it to come in the mail and you don’t have to drive anywhere to get it.
Are movie downloads a better choice? They are for a certain person. If you like to watch movies at your disposal, don’t like waiting for the mail or driving anywhere, and watch movies a lot, getting a service like this is great. If you don’t rent movies often, you can still rent downloads from Amazon only when you want to. If you are interested in learning more about either of these services, click the link below.
