... doesn't exist. But there are a flock of companies that do the same thing. DVD Info keeps track of the different companies -- numbers of disks, response times, customer service. I'm tempted to jump in and sign up, though I have a terrific DVD place (La Boîte Noire) just one chilly dog walk away. It would save me the half hour staring at video titles without having access to the IMDB ratings, wondering whether Warriors of Heaven and Earth is better than The Emporer and the Assassin. I hate hanging out in video stores trying to figure out what to watch. I sometimes wonder if I'd've done better to just work my way through all the titles. Well, probably not, but I should cut down the dithering. Maybe renting DVD's by mail would do that.

Have people had good luck with DVD-by-mail houses? I'm concerned I'd use it lots in the beginning, and then stop using it so often, until I'd be paying ten bucks a rental...

I loved Netflix. Must've had it for over a year, and only quit using it because we decided to forego distractions until the Novels Are Finished. I think my queue of movies to be seen was up around 200 when I quit, and we were watching at least two and maybe three a week. It's the best system I've yet seen for home entertainment. I'll probably rejoin if ever the Novels Are Finished.

Hey, I've been to that DVD shop.

I also love Netflix. I hate going to a video store. The people are not friendly, and they never have the movie I want. Now, whenever I hear of a good movie, I just hop on the internet and surf to netflix. For someone like me, who is trying to get a broad range of movies, it makes me watch more, because they just keep on coming.

Been doing it for awile here in Edmonton. But I've had nothing but trouble from zip.ca. They are the largest, but if you browse the net, you'll realize how bad of a job they are doing, and how pissed off some of their customers are. There are a number of small companies (starflix, etc.) but I'm waiting for some descent competition from larger companies like BlockBuster or Netflix.

I have waited for NETFLIX for the longest time but my hope are gone with the wind now.

I tried ZIP.CA and I have to say that I was nicely surprise about their movie selection but also with their customer service.

I know it's been a while since you posted but If you ever want an opinion on Zip.ca I would say go for it.

Kind regards

John
