I use BOTH NETFLIX and BLOCKBUSTER ON LINE cuz they
both have their pros and cons.
NETFLIX tends to ship more quickly -- one day -- WHEN they
ship . .
but OF LATE BLOCKBUSTER has been better about shipping
new releases in HD and BR.
As of today my NETFLIX queue has more HD/BR titles
listed as LONG WAIT or VERY LONG WAIT while my
BLOCKBUSTER queue has the same titles as SHORT WAIT
IE: today THE ROCK was "available" from BB and VERY LONG WAIT from NF
This is of course fairly subjective but as a rule NETFLIX is ships
faster - one day -- with longer waits for titles and BLOCKBUSTER is the opposite -- one or two days.
AND NETFLIX tends to only ship some of the available titles IE if i have four films returned
and at least four titles available they will ship two titles and say the other two will be shipped
Also, BB is much less picky about defective and lost in the mail discs.
BB tends to offer more versions of more titles and they LIST all the versions they
offer with the release dates . I LOVE that. Whereas, NF tends to NOT offer, say, the
"Newest Special Edition Directors Cut" they tend to ONLY stock one version. I HATE that.
This is a BIG ADVANTAGE for BB.
But then BB sometimes has odd lapses in what they stock; as of today
BLADE RUNNER is not stocked in HD or BR and SUNSHINE on BR is listed as COMING SOON
To be fair, I got SUNSHINE on BR from NF the day it came out.
NF seems to have a "Catch 22" restriction on everything.
So, yeah, neither is perfect.
