Netflix or Blockbuster?
« on: September 10, 2006, 05:33:21 pm »
I'm thinking about signing up for a DVD service.  Anyone have experience with both Netflix and Blockbuster?  Not sure which one to use.

Blockbuster you will get two free rentals from the store per month.  Shipping I think depends on where you are from where it ships, but I think Netflix ships fastest.

He means Blockbuster Online.

Btw, do a poll.

Personally, I prefer Greencine.
Had them for about a year now.
They've got a good number of independent titles in addition to the mainstream stuff.
Lots of anime too and the shipping is fairly fast.

Out of the two, I would go with Netflix. I hate Blockbuster with a fiery passion

I'm really not that big a fan of blockbuster. Beyond the annoying and almost manic way they push their service at you in the video store, I find they really don't  have that great of a selection. I prefer netflix, it has both the brand new movies I crave, and the more esoteric fare I'm interested in. (Ahhh, six sting samurai, we barely knew ye)

I do admit, I'm finally reaching the end of my queue list, only two hundred some odd left to go!, maybe I'll give greencine a try next.
