Online Movie rentals in Canada?



Does anyone rent movies online in Canada? If so, from where? I have been looking trying to find a place like netflix in the US, but cannot find any.

haha, I don't know anyone who does this...

Zip.ca is awesome.

You pay $25/month, request like 20 movies, the 4 with the most availability get mailed out. There are no late charges. The dvd ships out with a postage paid return envelope. When you're done mail it back. It's fairly easy and stupidproof. I've been with them for about 3 months.

hmm not bad.. i read on the website you get 2 rentals per week.. so in a month thats 8 rentals? so cheaper then blockbuster, and you dont have to mission out to the movie place... I gues it works somewhat.

i have been using this service for about 5 months now and i am very satisfied!

i am with www.vhqonline.ca

if you want some reviews on canadian online rental sites, go here:

http://www.onlinedvdrentalguide.ca./


$25/month gets me 4 dvd's at one time, they are shipped out with postage paid return envelopes! when you are finished with them simply drop the dvds in a mailbox! you can keep the movies as long as you want, no late fees ever!

the amount of movies you will get in 1 month varies depending on how long you keep each dvd... i average about 16 dvd's per month which is amazing for $25!! i do ship mine back usually the same day i get them or the following day

i live in Toronto so shipping is usually 2 days each way, VHQ is located in Toronto

VHQ e-mails me when they receive my dvd's and when they have shipped out the next ones on my list, i have about 200 dvd's on my list right now

I highly recommend this service if you like movies, you will save a ton of $$$$ compared to a $5.74 rental at blockbuster!

cheers

Have been using ZIP for a few months now. I get on average about 16 movies amonth. I get them and 'backup' and then send them back. If I put them in the mail on the Monday I have another 4 by Friday.
