If you're new to the idea, check our quick 'How It Works' section to the right. Even if you've already tried renting DVDs online, the wide range of competing companies can make it pretty tough to decide which one is right for you.

The great thing about renting movies online is that most companies give you an unlimited amount of rentals, the only restriction is that you have to rent as a minimum 2-8 movies per month depending on the company. A further great thing to note is that you can return them any time you want without getting late fees. You also have the added convenience of being able to have the movies delivered straight to your mailbox, and you return them in pre-paid packaging.

Choosing the right company

Film Range

Most of the companies will cover all of the new releases and latest films. The size of available titles becomes important if you're a looking for obscure genres or subject matter. The best advice we can give is to browse the list of sites above and then choose one that covers your taste in films. Obviously the more titles available the larger the range will be.

Location

Some customers may have had slightly quicker shipping times from companies located nearby. However, this should not be the sole deciding factor in choosing one site over another as variety, cost and service are all important.

Price

The price of DVD rentals should not be a critical factor in choosing the right service. Usually you will already be getting a discount over what you would pay at your local video store, therefore service is important.

Support

Not all Australian DVD rental companies offer phone support, however all will offer some form of support, usually by email. It can be very differcult and frustrating trying to contact them by email if you have problems with your rented DVD, therefore we recommend choosing a rental outfit that offers telephone support as standard.

Adult Films

Some online rental companies do adult films. Several are family sites and therefore will not offer adult films. There are also separate adult DVD rental sites such as Adultflix which hold a large range of adult titles.
