DVD Online Rental


Recommended Posts

Been checking out online DVD Rental lately, but still unable make a choice.

 

 

- www.hollywoodclicks.com --> 3 DISC AT ONE TIME : $41.73/mth

- www.homepal.com.sg  --> 3 DISC AT ONE TIME : $34.95/mth

- www.videoezy.com.sg  --> 3 DISC AT ONE TIME : $31.99/mth for minimum 6 mths

 

 

 

Which one is offering big selection and fast delivery service?

 

i am considering for videoezy for cheapest subscription.. ;D

Video library cheaper, $3-$4 per disc no package deal, rent and stop anytime you want, nothing is lost if you stop renting for 1 or 2 wks.  not forced into taking a specific amount of disc which sometimes you do not watch.

Some Video library also carries R1 and R6 title which i do not think the listed people has  and also if you are familar with the library they can recommend and reserve movies for you and waive off overdue charges

depending where you are staying, libraries, like myself started Dvd rental before the R3 become popular carries mostly R1 titles because the were very little R3 available. currently we are still buying R1 titles which we know the R3 is releasing slower  we, have "Shooter" about one mt ago till now R3 still not released yet. Also "Black Snake Moan". "Infamous" etc... also R6 & hk titles

 

Let me know where you stay maybe I could recomend you some of my friends ;D ;D

I have a friend who is operating Sam's Video and photo blk 741 #01-3077 B. reservoir Rd tel 62449991. check with them whether they got R1 or not they also do supplying to other libraries

 

Better choice will be Canton Video,  Serangoon central 62810087  united sq 62542423, R valley 68352327

 

BLACK SNAKE MOAN was brought in by L F. I brought a copy but only saw it once on the shelf

so i gather they must have very limited copies. however check with my friends they always shop at Blue Max ;D ;D

 

by the way, BSMoan is not a great movie but, it has a lot of M18 scenes with Christina Ricci ::)

Actually they do carry R1...even R2 and R4...though i think few R6...check out the links.

These online DVD rental companies take pride in having large libraries that gives you a wide selection of titles to choose from...I think Homepal states that they have 6000++...Thus most would carry and get titles regardless of the region code, sometimes double disc editions and even carry multiple region codes,versions and editions of a single title ;)

I would say online renting is more for people who rent A lot or likes less mainstream flicks...which are difficult to find at the typical rental store. These online rental definitely carry more classics and foreign titles.

 

Otherwise its quite a waste of the services...you should just rent at your nearest rental store :)

I've gone for Hollywoodclicks for abt 2 yrs, then switched to HomePal for almost a year before

I terminated the subscription recently ... felt that they bring in alot more non English titles (eg.

Korean DVDs which I'm not interested in) than English titles ... will consider to continue with

Hollywoodclicks again for it's somewhat larger selection ... did not choose Videoezy cos still

feel that their selection is not as large as the other 2 ...

 

Some plus points for HomePal is that it operates on Saturday as well, and occassionally

it has re-released DVDs or the 2 disc ed of selected DVDs.

 

For those who wishes to rent from the DVD rental shop, I'll still recommend Gramophone ...

Besides, they tend to have slightly more R1 DVDs than those online stores ... I think ...

I've never rented from HomePal before and was wondering about their membership cancellation procedures. They state something like...

 

HomePal engages an independent Credit Card Company to carry out billing. Members who cancel their membership with HomePal after having satisfied the above Membership cancellation pre-requisites, must then proceed to cancel FuturePay Agreement with the Credit Card Company

 

Now what do they mean by that? must then proceed to cancel FuturePay Agreement with the Credit Card Company. I've used others...and usually you just empty your queue...and click the cancel button and confirm...thats all?

 

Protocol...or anyone else who have used HomePal? Could you help to clear that up for me...Thanks.
