Google Discussing Streaming Movie Rentals with Major Studios



+ Add a Comment


Prices like that are exactly the reason why I stopped going to the local video store, and why they're going out of business.  It's not just Blockbuster either.  All over town the Hollywood video stores are closing because nobody wants to pay $6-7 for a movie rental.  $5 isn't much better.



I'm still trying to figure out why someone would pay $5 / movie to rent one movie instead of a flat rate with netflix and being patient...I guess some people have more money for entertainment...



Not to mention Netflix has a halfway decent streaming catalog, too. Hell, at that price, I really don't mind the three minute trip to my nearest Redbox.
