DVD Box Office

Posted on Wed 15 December 2004 by alex in general

Every ones favourite online mega-corp have started offering DVD rentals by post. Seeing as I enjoy watching films but find Sky Box Office limited and scary* I thought I'd give it a go. The concept is quite simple in that you pay a monthly fee and maintain a rental queue. As you return DVDs by post they send out the next one (subject to a monthly limit). The advantage over your traditional rental outfit being you have access to most of Amazon's vast DVD catalogue, as well as not having to leave the house. We shall see how it goes.

*scary as in I try to be careful with my market data, and I
don't trust the Murdoch empire at all. That and since I last re-arranged the house the Sky Box hasn't been plugged into the phone socket.
