I'm a bit late to this article but thank you for stating the truth about online movie rental.
I am so sick of reading on tech blogs about how good this service or that service is when that is not my experience at all. None of them match the service my local video rental store used to give (before it closed down) and generally the selection of both old and new release movies is terrible. I am very anti pirating but I have to say, when I ask all my friends which service is the best, they all say Pirate Bay and I'm beginning to understand why.
Friday night in our house is movie night and since our rental shop closed we now spend half an hour trawling through the online movie selection desperately trying to find something we want to watch – it's pathetic.
