I don’t have a tv, but I do have a DVD player on my computer.
I hardly ever rent movies to watch. It’s not that I have some high moral reason for not having a tv, or for not watching movies (I can watch them on my computer), I just have too many other things to do, and I don’t like sitting still and doing only one thing.
Still, though, I would like to rent a DVD now and then. Netflix looks awesome. I would think even a small-time movie buff would think it is a great idea.
But their pricing system is based on the month, not the number of DVD rentals. So…their minimum charge is $9.99 a month. That means if I rented five DVDs per year, I’d have to play about $120.
Aaargh…why don’t they have another option of charging per DVD rental? They could give discounts the more someone rents.
Anyway, maybe if I whine to them enough they’ll offer some alternatives. Is it worth it? Is it as cool as I think it is?
