Why Blockbuster Online DVD Rentals is Better Than NetFlix
Netflix used to the be clear king of the hill in terms of online dvd movie rental services. Why?
- Netflix was the first DVD movie rental service
- Netflix built out huge numbers of distribution centers, so you only had to wait 1 day for your movie to arrive in the mail
- Netflix has all-you-can-eat unlimited rental plans, and now plans as low as $5/month
- Netflix has no late fees
- Netflix stocks over 75,000 movies – great for independent and foreign films
Blockbuster, Wal-mart, and others built out me-too copy cat DVD rental services too recently, but they all didn’t compare to NetFlix. . . until now. . .
Here’s why Blockbuster Online is a better buy than NetFlix:
- Blockbuster offers a free trial for their service available in some places or $9.99 for unlimited rentals the 1st month promotion, so even if you’re a current Netflix customer, you can do a head-to-head comparison of the two services to see which one delivers movies faster

- No late fees, just like the store memberships
- You don’t have to wait for the movies in the mail anymore — they have 23 distributions centers across the US now, and don’t forget the 4,500+ brick and morter stores in your local neighborhood!
