There are more than a few online movie rental plans available these days. The number of DVD movies that you are permitted to have out at a time establishes the price of the plan. To clarify how this works, we will presume that you have joined a plan that allows for 3 DVD movies to be out at a time. This is the most common arrangement but all other plans will work as well for any online movie rentals.
The second method is make a one time purchase from filmes online sites such as cinemanow or movielink. Typically you pay anywhere from 9.99 to 29.99 to download each movie.
This saves you the problem of fighting and getting disappointed on losing the last copy of a new movie at the local store. You also don’t end up paying for fuel in going to pick them up and returning them back.
Remember that the delivery time for your DVD rental movies will vary depending on how far you are from your rental company distribution centers. So, consider this distance factor when you select the company for your rentals.
Please remember to check the format of the online movie files for compatibility with your DVD player or PC movie viewing client. It is safest to sign up for websites that carry movies in the DivX format as this is one of the fastest formats in terms of downloading speeds. Other formats tend to consume quite a huge chunk of your bandwidth and people have complained about how slow it can be to download movies. There are sites that are packed with ready to play movie formats and these are the most convenient places for downloading movies online.
If you want the option to rent and return movies in store too, check for a service that offers this option, not many do. It is only companies such as Blockbuster who have the traditional bricks and mortar stores that can do this.
Without online renting apart from getting to watch your favorite and current movies you are also under no burden to return them back. However, renting at a store will require that after a certain period you take them back to the store or risk further costs.
