An online DVD rental gives you all the benefits of a chain or retail store, but without all the drawbacks. It really is the perfect business plan: give customers exactly what they want, for as long as they want, and deliver it straight to their door, postage paid, for a fixed price. When you rent DVDs online, you never have to worry about volume; take out one movie a month, or one a day--you pay the same price either way.

Naturally, then, it behooves you to watch as many movies as you can to get the maximum value from your membership. An online DVD rental service rewards true cinephiles. Watch 'Star Wars' one night, 'Casablanca' the next, followed by 'The Matrix' on the third night. At your video store, chances are at least one of these titles would be out of stock on any given night, largely because most stores only shelve one or two copies of anything that's not a new release.

Finding the Perfect Online DVD Rental Company

It seems there are online DVD rental services springing up all over the place nowadays. Many of these provide similar services, but there are a couple of key features to look out for when making a decision. One, obviously, is cost. While prices won't tend to vary too much, a couple of bucks a month can add up over the course of a year, so be sure to shop around before inking any deals.

You'll also want to find out how many simultaneous rentals you're permitted. Most companies allow at least two or three, but some Internet DVD rental services allow up to seven or eight. Depending on just how avid a fan you are, this can make or break your decision to join a given service. Some people simply aren't content to have but three movies out at a time. As you might have guessed, this can cost substantially more, so be sure you know what you're agreeing to before you sign on the line.
