    Still can only see dvds advertised though.

    Cheers mate, but its a member log in.

    Could someone tell me if UMDs are included? If so, PSP is going to get a lot of use!

    Damn. So close and yet so far. Like Victoria Butterworth back in sixth form showing me her forest of dean.

    Still, for the cash thats bloody good. Decisons decsions. Though really want UMD movies as well. I know a few places do it, but it more money.

    I assume it is the same as renting dvds from screenselect, therefore you can hold onto the disc for as long as you like and it is free to return it to them

    I think until they set up sepaerate lists its going to be VERY hit and miss

    FOund screen selects turn around and service very good in time I have been with them but they are not for the impatient - it took be three months to get the Aviator from them which I had as HIGH priority

    I can imagine that when the "trial" period is up they will change how its done - allowing you to have sepaerate lists for games to DVDs and probably adding a few quid a month on the sub

    could be that you get 2 DVDs and 1 game for the current 3 DVD price or similar

    I've noticed that Blockbuster now have 360 titles. My local one just has GRAW and The Outfit at the mo, but it's a start.

    Yep i can see how it works and TBH i cant really complain as the service on DVD's is pretty fast like you say and after all this is an AV forum and there's been no shortage of something to watch in my house over the last week or so :D

    BUT has anyone actually got a game yet

    I smell a scam to get new peeps to sign up...

    I'll give it one more turn around and then cancel before my 21 days free are up
