    I just signed up. It's a 2 week trial and no way to get out of the $19.99 plan for the trial. Also, there is no $10 per month for the 2-DVD plan. Crossing my fingers the $25 paypal cash comes through.

    Hmm... anyone tried to actually negotiate a price with Blockbuster or Netflix? Sounds comical.

    The service is terrible. Most movies show up as "Long Wait" and they throttle worse than NetFlix.

    I've had a dozen DVD's on my blockbuster list for over a year that still say "very long wait". They did finally ship one of them a couple weeks ago.

    Wouldn't you assume that if they have customers waiting for a DVD for over a year, that they would just buy a few more copies?

    Only reason I haven't canceled is that they still give me unlimited in store exchanges for $19.99. Allows me to rent 35 to 40 DVD's per month. However, if they don't finally ship a few more the the disk I have been waiting on, I'll be cancelling in a couple months and switching to Netflix.

    Agree with #4. I was with Blockbusters for a couple of month. The convenience of the store exchange is great. If you are organized, you can watch a movie a day. But, you need the time to watch one movie a day!

    True. hey have long waits for some DVDs. In 4 months I couldn't get Rebeca, the Hitchock movie.

    Customer service was not bad, either. They answered emails promptly and they sent me a couple of coupons for a free movie at the store, when I had problems receiving my movies.

    Overall, it was a good deal. I liked it more than Netflix.

    You don't need the time to watch one movie a day, you just need the time to rip one movie a day.
