So yesterday I received a new offer from my bank - through the Premier service I can sign up for DVDchezvous service for € 28 / month. It works pretty much like the NetFlix service in the US. It's a great concept, but I still think that the price is a bit steep.
Here's how it works:
1. You go and choose a film from their website, or place a call to their call center.
2. They send the movie(s) to an address of your choice. (Meaning you can still get your movie(s) while being on vacation)
3. After watching the movie(s) you put them in the envelope (pre-stamped) and post it.
You can keep the movie(s) for as long as you desire, but you can only "rent" two movies at a time.
The Premier service offers me a 1-month trial period, so I might try it out.. With a bit of luck the price will go down in the near future.
