If you have never tried an online movie rental service before it may seem odd to rent and receive movies by mail. But it is actually a lot simpler, convenient and cheaper than renting from a store.
There are about 20 TVs selling for around $1000 and a half dozen Blu-ray players for around $150 that will stream filmes online. All the newer TVs hitting the market will soon have the internet streaming feature and will be coming out sometime this year. And some tech people predict that all the newer Blu-ray players will have it on all their models. They will include this feature on the lower priced models too.
You also have the option to rent movies on blue ray DVDs for a small additional fee. You are able to keep each movie for as long as you desire, but must return it to receive the next one in your queue. With Netflix, the shipping is free both to you and back to the distribution center.
Or you can get an LG BD300 Network Blu-ray player which also allows Netflix members to stream more than 12,000 standard definition TV and films through the device at no additional increase to their monthly paid subscriptions. Members will use the Netflix website to add movies or TV to their individual instant queues. Movies will begin playing in as little as 30 seconds when selected from the TV where users can browse, make selections, read synopses, rate movies, and fast-forward / rewind video streams using the BD300’s remote control.
You will get the choice to download and delete them or download and keep them. You will not have to worry about late fees and spending gas on returning your movies to the store. You will not even have to worry about when the movie comes out on DVD and trying to be one of the first one’s at the store so you can rent the latest movies. You will not have to worry about spending anymore money on your movie collection. One of the advantages about Net Movie Downloads is that you will also be able to access music and games as well.
Pricing is the number one way you will save money. You can get a membership for less than ten dollars a month and get unlimited rentals. If you are like our family and you watch at least one movie a week then you will save over half of the money that you would normally spend.
And, although this is supposed to be a list of 10 reasons to rent movies online, here is one more. Many online movie rental services offer free trial periods from 2 weeks to 1 month so you can test out whether or not you like the service.
