    What do you all use to rent movies? I like redbox because sometimes me and or the wife and I are in mood for a certain type of movie and you can go online and reserve it at a redbox and get back home with it quickly plus you know what is in stock already. You have to plan a little with netflix. I do get tried of people at some redbox's who take forever........to look at the movies. Got behind a guy yesterday and he couldn't read or something and i probably waited 10 minutes for him. I already had mine reserved and I think he wondered how I did it so fast. I think hollywood video and blockbuster are becoming a thing of the past.

    Netflix... And I use Netflix instant on my PS3 and LG Bluray DVD player. I have a couple of friends that had bad experiences with getting scratched up DVD's from Red Box so I've never tried it.

    Redbox. Used to do Netflix, but after a while the post office would keep changing our mailman and we wouldn't get the movies, or anything else. I don't think I can do the instant thing with my slow a$$ dial up.:(

    Nothing at the moment
    Red box every now and again because it's about 500 yards from the house. Although it's not on the list, I've got whatever the package is that Blockbuster has. I get 3 movies at a time, plus I get unlimited in store exchanges so if I don't want to wait, I can just take a movie back there and get a new one. If I ever upgrade my TiVo box, I can also get blockbuster on demand where it will stream to the TiVo box.

    I get 3 movies out at a time. They come in the mail, go back in the mail. Quick shipping from a local distribution point. Just gotta keep my queue loaded with movies as some are on a waiting list.
