Blockbuster Video Review



Blockbuster Video Review by Katie

    As one of the only major providers of DVD by mail and online streaming, many people are wondering if Blockbuster is the best value. I have tried the 30 day free trial offered by Blockbuster to see what features I liked and did not like. First, the price breakdown for Blockbuster is $9.99 per month for unlimited 1 disc at a time rental, or 2 at a time for $14.99. This includes Blu-Ray, (which costs additional $2 per month with Netflix), and a selection of over 3,000 video games, which are not offered by Netflix. To stream movies online, Blockbuster offers a pay-per-view price of only $2.99-$3.99 per movie.

    So in my Blockbuster Video Review I determined that while Blockbuster may costs a little bit more, but after my free trial, I really felt that Blockbuster offered the better value because you could rent video games under their service, and you can swap your video at a local participating Blockbuster instead of having to wait on the mail. Blockbuster also gets most new releases 28 days before other providers! For me, this was huge. The movies I usually want to rent are new releases, and I hate having to wait. Patience is a virtue, but unfortunately, it isn’t one of mine!

    That said, Blockbuster offers a free 30 day trial, cancellation of your contract anytime, can stream 1080p of video, and has great customer service 24/7 customer service. I chose Blockbuster because of the video game rental options, the new releases, the ability to swap out my rental at the local store and the fact Blockbuster didn’t charge extra for HD Blu-Ray rentals. So if you’re still not sure which service is right for you, sign up for the 30 day free trial and see what you think! Thanks for reading my Blockbuster Video Review check out my Blockbuster VS.
