    Just started using them @ unlimited DVD,s monthly with three @ home for 14.99

    Gr8 service, DVD turnaround within 48 hours or less- door to door!

    Have just pre paid for 3 months @ 29.99 equating 2 £10/month.

    Just thought they deserved a mention ....I'm luuuurving it.

    Best service i have had yet, was running with BB before who are basically useless and their customer service is worse. BB took ages to turnaround disks and a lot of them were badly scratched.

    i also agree, been using screenselect for the last 3 months or so after leaving blockbuster, much better service, not had one scratched disc yet and the turn around is also faultless, get at least 1 or 2 of my top title's a week unlike block buster ...... a very happy screen select customer :thumbsup:

    Always reassuring 2 get positive feedback - thanks.

    The deal they offered me was, methinks V.Good, as I took out initially a free 21 day trial - upgraded by them automatically to 1 month. Then prior to them taking the first payment from my card they offered me the pre pay at £10/month.

    I could have gone fora 12 month pre pay ,allowing me to have a 4 month free rental i.e. pay for 8 months only.

    Hope it all holds 2gether over this period.

    If it does I'll def. be taking the extended offer if still available.

    Nice 1 Screenselect!:clap: :clap: :clap:

    I just did the free trial just to get the free Shark Tale which I got the other day, trouble is I forgot to cancel it after the fifth rental so I got stuck with it for a month, I moaned and I got an extra month credited to my account but the problem is I can't find enough films that I want to see as I have most of what I want on disc already.

    What i'm planning on doing is getting a disc from them then storing it on the PC then sending the disc back on the same day to squeeze as many rentals outta them as possible.

    cancelled with screenselect last month
    like every other online rental company
    They are great for the first 2/3 weeks,
    then v.slow to send discs out, and your top choice movies
    accept that and the cost per disc, and its okay

    So long as you don't actually watch the movies and send them back quickly Screenselect will be great. If you turn them around quickly (as I did) then they will start to mysteriously 'get lost in the post'. I was lucky to get 1 a week after a while. Switched to Blockbuster and strangely they stopped getting lost :rolleyes:

    So far (6 months) Blockbuster are fine on turnaround, though lately they have been getting worse at sending my top choices.

    I used these for a few months and was very happy with the service. Even after my trial period had ended the next couple of months the discs still came very fast and frequent.

    I cancelled as I just didn't have time to watch them, especially with the new TV season.

    So its not just me then.

    BB were great for a while and now I will be lucky to get 1-2 a week. Plus they never answer my e-mails complaining.

    I'm going to cancel.:mad:

    Been using Screenselect for well over a year now and before that In- Movies whom they merged with. Can't fault them at all, even when they had that fire they were quick to get things back on track.

    Highly recommended.

    I've been with them for over 2 years now :D
    Only problem I have is with the bloody post office in my area. Only 1 pick up and delivery a day now which really slows things down.
    Get 3 disks a week were as before I could get 6 no problem.

    Use them mainly for TV show rentals as I end up buying most of the big movies for myself. Also great for watching old classics that you'd only watch once so no sense in buying.
