    Some of you guys must be member of these internet DVD rental clubs where you pay £10 - £15 a month for as many DVDs as you like but are limited per delivery (that's how it works - right?)

    Anyway, I'm thinking about cancelling my Sky Movies package in favour of this - which of the companies offering this would you recommend?

    (except BlockB@stards, who I had a run-in with years ago -I am maintaining the moral highground by boycotting them!)

    I've never had a problem with Lovefilm.

    Screen select were useless during the trial period - really slow at turning the dvd's around.

    Tesco & dvd365 were fine during the free trial.

    dvd choice, lovefilm, inmovies, movietrak, screenselect
    I've tried em all, but Video Island at msn.videoisland.com
    wins hands down, £15 a month 3 out at a time.
    They have averaged 4 movies a week with me in the last 6 months
    that works out at less than £1 a movie and includes post both ways.
    And you get a little printed review to keep on a card with every rental.
    (I cancelled Sky for this too, and am very happy with me decision)

    if you go to this web site

    www.dvdtrials.co.uk for

    you can get over a years worth of free trials with all the different companys out there. After that, you will be able to make up your own mind aout which one is the best.

    I use Mailbox Movies and they seem to be OK. I also had the free trial with screen select and I didn't have any problems there.

    For a 30 day trial with video island, goto www.magic1054.co.uk (a radio station here in london) and click on the video island logo.

    Has anyone used CD WOW rentals?
    They are good for buying dvds, so may be ok.

    BTW how much do you save if you cancel sky movies?

    I've tried a few companies and I found choices rental company, whatever they are called?, to be the best so far. I found them to be extremely quick in getting DVDs back to me. They also had a good selection of non mainstream films and the added bonus of giving audio specification like DTS or Dolby Digital 5.1 etc. Also unlike a lot of their competitors I've received mostly my top choices (including new releases) from my DVD queue. I found blockbusters to not send many from the top of my queue especially newer releases.

    Movietrak don't seem to have the same depth of choice as a lot of the other rental companies.


    To be honest most of these companies mentioned in posts above are worth a look

    give a few a try with their free trials and deciede yourself
