Netflix vs. Blockbuster @my Send a noteboard - 04/07/2010 03:58:53 PM
I had Netflix for about a year and a half and basically loved it. I quit Netflix for a while, and when I wanted to re-up again, I decided to give Blockbuster a shot.

Netflix:

send the movie in on Monday, they receive it Tuesday, you have your new movie by Wednesday.

Blockbuster:

Send the movie in on Monday, they MIGHT get it by Wednesday, they send it back to you by Thursday and you receive it by maybe Saturday.

I'm not sure what Blockbuster has for the Watch it Now, but I'm LOVING this feature in Netflix. And if you have a Wii you can Watch Now on hour tv.

Oh, and Blockbuster had long wait times for many many shows. And not just new movies either. As far as I'm concerned, Blockbuster sucked.

We do redbox too, but we're way out in the boonies so returning them can be a pain. - 02/07/2010 10:58:28 PM 519 Views

Yeah, looks like 3 major studios have the 28 day wait on Netflix now. - 03/07/2010 04:22:52 AM 522 Views
It sounds like a good idea (from the studio's side) - 04/07/2010 01:27:17 AM 509 Views
