Lordy I'm In Trouble

I've just spent far too long wandering round the Guardian DVD rental thingy.

But it *so* badly needs a wishlist feature. I want to collate a list of films to rent 'at some stage'. Sometimes I know what I want to see, sometimes I don't - and under those circumstances being able to browse an old list would be ideal...

Very interesting Rich. So how does the queuing system work then? Do you find you end up with a film you want at the time you want, or do you need to have a couple on the go at a time?

At 20ukp a month for three discs at a time, inclusive of postage, it looks like NetFlix, which I sub to, with the customary 1ukp = $1 conversion. I get through about 12 discs a month, which makes it cheaper than the Guardian thing.

Check the catalogue, if there's thirty things you want to watch, it's probably worth it.

The catch with NetFlix, is that if you have too many films out in one month, you start to get bumped down the queue for popular movies. Although it's not really affected me yet.

Hmm, I note they have porn...
