True, although the five in-store exchanges have the benefit of reducing the time between getting discs. Still, I prefer Netflix's service.
There used to be a Blockbuster w/n walking distance but it's long gone. My mailbox is much closer. I ain't driving and fighting for parking just to return disks!
And streaming is even less hassle! No mailing, no leaving the house....





Yes, our local Blockbuster went out of business a couple of months ago. We have those redbox things at our local grocery store. My wife gets those things once in a while.

Streaming really has to be the wave of the future. Whatever cost structure between netflix and the studios will support streaming everything will end up being the final word, I think.

At least until they start beaming movies directly into our brains.
