Online Movie Rentals

Renting movies on DVD without having to drive to a video store or late fees is the selling point for websites like,,, and  Each site has a variety of plans and plenty of movies to choose from.

Both netflix and numberslate say they have libraries of over 13,000 movie titles and offer 2 week trial periods to try their services.  Both also let you rent as many movies as you want, but only allow you to have a certain amount at once (2 for numberslate, 3 for netflix).

Rentdvdhere has several plans that vary in price based on how many DVDs you have at one time and also have a free trial with some of their plans.  Eveningvideo has 3 plans--a pay per rental plan that does charge late fees, and two that don't that are similar to the other website plans.
