Netflix
Membership Features:

One of many fine features offered through Netflix is the level of helpful movie data they offer. For example, when you search for an actor or a director, the site provides you with a photo, a brief bio and career information. There's also a list of all the movies that person has been involved with available for rent through Netflix.

You can rate each movie you rent and read reviews written by other customers and professional movie critics. Netflix also has an Easter Egg section so you can find bonus materials hidden in certain DVD menus, and their Favorites section helps you find all of your favorite movies quickly.

We also had an experience with Netflix where we received a broken DVD in the mail. Upon notifying them, Netflix representatives immediately sent us a replacement movie and followed up with an impressive number of emails to make sure we were completely taken care of-we felt this level of service was extraordinary.


Movie Arrival Time:

With 35 shipping centers throughout the US and more planned to come, Netflix offers shorter shipping times than any other online DVD rental service-taking an average of around a day to reach you once they've shipped out. These shorter shipping times allow you to get more bang for your buck, giving you the ability to rent more DVDs within a shorter time period.


Movie Information:

Movie browsers don't have to click back and forth to find out information about a particular movie. A mouse-over across a movie image will bring up a temporary text box with the synopsis, main actors, director, genre and rating. Clicking on the movie title provides the same information plus awards and an explanation for the movie's rating.

Although NetFlix doesn't provide as detailed information as Blockbuster, it is enough to make choosing movies quick and easy.


Search Capabilities:

Netflix boasts plenty of methods to search for movies, including searches by title, actor, director, studio, genre, decade, new releases and by critic and customer recommendation. You can also search by awards movies have received.


Summary:

Netflix outshines the competition with an immense DVD selection, superior customer service and the fastest arrival time around. So if you're looking for an online DVD rental service that can meet all of your DVD rental needs, try the Netflix free trial and see what a real DVD service is like.


NetFlix offers a 2-week free trial four different plans:

$4.99 per month - 2 rentals per month with one DVD rental at a time
$9.99 per month - unlimited rentals per month with one DVD rental at a time
$14.99 per month - unlimited rentals per month and with two DVD rentals at a time
$17.99 a month - unlimited rentals per month with three DVD rentals at a time
$23.99 per month - unlimited rentals per month with four DVD rentals at a time

When signing up for a free-trial membership, Netflix has you set up a fully-functioning account, requiring a credit card number as a deposit. If you do not cancel your membership once your free trial is over, Netflix assumes that you want continue your service and will charge your card for the next month's service.
