If you haven’t heard of Netflix by now, you’ve been living under a rock for the past five years. As a service to you, I will bypass explaining all the things you missed including the 2000 Florida election controversy, terrorism, shuttle disasters, The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, and countless other events, and focus on why people rent Netflix movies. In the old days, if you wanted to rent a movie, you had to poll all the people wanting to watch a movie, load up in the car, drive to the local Blockbuster or Hollywood Video, and search through the New Releases or limited selection of the older stuff. That was the 20th century. In 1999, Netflics created a new way for consumers to rent movies. Netflix allows consumers to browse countless DVDs from the privacy and comfort of their own home. Netflix will send you three DVD movies at a time and you can keep them as long as you wanted—with no due dates or late fees. When you are done with the movie, simply send the movies back in a prepaid postal envelope and Netflix will send you another movie on your queue—all this for $19.95 a month subscription fee (Netflix has since raised the subscription rate to $21.99 a month and then lowered it to $17.99). This new rental business beats brick and mortar rental stores hands down for avid movie watchers. That had people saying, “Why *not* rent Netflix?”
The rental industry is still evolving. Just as Netflix evolved from the brick and mortar stores, a newer company, Gameznflix, has evolved from the Netflix concept. Gameznflix works just like Netflix, except for one key difference. While Netflix only allows its customers to rent DVD movies, Gameznflix allows customers to rent DVD movies *and* console games. You can rent games and movies in any combination and keep up to three at a time, just like Netflix, with no due dates or late fees. While Netflix charges $21.99 per month, Gameznflix charges only $18.50 per month. If you’re still not convinced, try out their free two week trial membership and experience it for yourself. You’ll be asking, “Why rent Netflix when there’s Gameznflix?”
Why would someone want to rent movies the Netflix way? And, more importantly, is there a better company out there?
