When deciding to rent online movies there are a number of companies who offer this service and you should consider your options carefully before choosing one. Below are some tips to help you choose the right service for your needs.
Tip 1: Check the company to see what is included in the membership. For example how many titles are available to rent. Do they offer a good selection of your kind of movies? What kind of plans do they offer? If you want to watch movies on Blu Ray or instantly on your TV or PC, some may charge you extra for this. If it’s an option you use often you may be better of finding a company that offers one or two of these options as part of the membership at no extra cost.
Tip 2: Make sure there is a good chance the company can deliver your movies quite quickly. The bigger the company, the more likely they will have many distribution centers. Meaning there is less travel time.
Tip 3: How do you like to watch your movies? If you don’t like to wait for movies to be shipped out to you, check for other options to suit you i.e. how many titles are available to download and watch instantly on your PC or TV. Also check the prices of the equipment required to do this and if the option to watch movies instantly is included in your membership. Or the extra cost is worth it.
Tip 4: Also check the return policy. Make sure that you can return the movie either by visiting a store or dropping it in the mail with no shipping costs. Most companies offer free shipping now. The return packaging is also ready for you to just to put the DVD in it to return by mail.
Tip 5: 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.
Tip 6: If you have a Blu Ray player, check for a good range of movies on Blu Ray to rent and the cost for this option. Some companies may charge you extra to rent Blu Ray DVDs.
Tip 7: If you are really want to get hold of the latest releases asap check for a service that allows you to do so, some allow you to rent online movies a day before official release. Remember though, that the availability of new releases really depends on supply and demand.
Tip 8: If you are still not sure if a service to rent online movies is right for you, see if they offer a free trial. This is the best way to check out a service and know for sure if it is right for you. Most of these free trials give you a good range of options, so you really can get a good idea of what’s on offer.
