Never did buy a Blu-Ray player.

* in case they don't have them by you, these are big red vending machines outside supermarkets and 7-Eleven stores containing DVDs of recent movies, and games. You can walk up and browse them like a candy vending machine, or you can reserve movies through their app.
And they’re almost free. I get so many promo codes from them. I assume they make their money from the old video store model of people keeping the film for multiple days. I live across the street from a Redbox so I often get a movie there and have it returned same day.
