After about 15 years of getting ripped off by Blockbuster and their insane late-fees, I decided to start renting movies from Movie Trading Company years ago. This worked well as they are very close to me, they let you rent movies for $4 with limited late fees, and if you like the movie, they will put the $4 towards the movie price AND give you the used price (so DVDs end up being like $17 rent-to-own).
But, the snag recently is that their HD-DVD titles aren't many, and they typically come out weeks after the DVD is released. I become very frustrated when I had to go home with 300 on regular DVD. . . VERY!
So, I got NetFlix this morning to take care of my HD-DVD needs. I only did 1 at a time, that way I won't feel guilty if I run out to rent/buy a movie from elsewhere. Also didn't hurt I got 2,000 free AA miles for signing up.
Impressions of Netflix? How long will I have to wait to get these HD-DVDs? Any problems with skipping discs? General thoughts?!?
