May 11: I've been a NetFlix member for pretty much 2 yrs now or higher to Monday of a week ago I actually have had no complaints.

I noticed however, that BlockBuster includes a similar online DVD rental service but surpasses NetFlix by permitting its user to likewise be able to come back movies to their local Blockbuster store.

Netflix DVDs must be mailed for them and although there is not any shipping charge, the main difference soon enough between driving to your store to come back a rental and mailing the rental using the post office is over a day. This is why i made a decision to sign up as a BlockBuster Online user and try out both services. Even though NetFlix invented the web based DVD rental service, Blockbuster is right at its tale, when i will demonstrate with this review.

I will only guess that Blockbuster had to generate a creative method of persuading people to try their online DVD rental service and at the same time avoid the negative publicity their retail store received. What Blockbuster developed was genius in my opinion: Let users get the DVD rentals on the mail, just like NetFlix, however, unlike NetFlix allow users to come back the DVDs to their local store.This became possibly the selling point BlockBuster would use.

Another feature that BlockBuster implemented allowing it's customers to obtain movies faster was by initiating an understanding using the Post Office. A post from your Boston Globe describes the way the company has asked the usa Postal Service to scan Blockbuster return envelopes and send the firm a digital notification so customers don't have to wait until the envelopes are in fact delivered before getting the next movie on their own to-see list sent out. Just what does this indicate? Basically here is the benefit to the renter:

1. Monday: You get your DVD movies through the mail, 1 from BlockBuster and 1 from NetFlix.

2. Tuesday: You drop off both movies on your local Post Office. The Post Office Scans in both movies. BlockBuster HQ is electronically notified that the movie continues to be returned towards the Post Office. That is the difference, however. BlockBuster knows you have returned the film, hence they send your following movie. NetFlix has not yet received their movie therefore they have not sent out there movie.

3. Wednesday: You obtain your second movie from BlockBuster Online. NetFlix has just received the film you sent on Tuesday. They ship your upcoming movie.

4. Thursday or Friday: You receive your second movie from NetFlix.

Anybody can clearly observe how BlockBuster movies arrive a minumum of one to 2 days sooner than NetFlix.

One other reason why I switched is the fact that BlockBuster sends me coupons that allow me to rent 1 movie a week using their store. This definitely comes in handy on a Friday night whenever you assumed you would probably have received a film inside the mail but realized you wouldn't buy it till the following day.

If you are considering renting DVDs online, You should try both services. You can consider them both free for 30 days (BlockBuster Online or NetFlix) then choose which one you would like to stay with.
