RB has titles like DREDD and I, FRANKENSTEIN in 3D...but that is only because both the 2D and 3D are on one disc.

Yes. I've done that once. There was an Anime title that was the third in a series. I had rented the first two from them but they didn't have the third one listed. So I asked them about it. And they just had me send them links of where it was available so I sent them a link from BestBuy and Amazon. And a short time later the rental had been sent to me. That was nice.

Sorry to hear that. Please try one of these 2 urls: 1) www.3d-blurayrental.com or 2) www.store-3d-blurayrental.com. You can also try to clear your cookies and history on your browser and try different browsers. Hope that helps.

Just signed up today for this. Is there an easy way to see which movies on your Wish List are actually in stock and which are short wait?

Also, if you are looking for suggestions @3BR , perhaps making the "In Stock" icon a different color than the "Short Wait" icon...?

You might consider setting up your own router to be a VPN relay (or use a service, but that might also be blocked), and then you just VPN to it or your own router (which then connects to whatever you want elsewhere). Your company would literally have no idea what you were looking at because 1. the destination IP looks like yours or the service's, and 2. packet inspection doesn't work on encrypted data streams.

Java developers, when I saw what has been placed into Java 8 I was immediately reminded of how I've spent so much of my life trying to protect engineers from themselves. Lambda expressions are a horrible idea. Gentlemen: the goal isn't to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer. The goal is to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer exhausted and hopped up on caffeine at 3 am. What a disaster Java 8 is!

We aren't allowed to mess with anything at work. It's a good way to get fired if you do. No idea what changed. But when they changed to the new website it started getting blocked at worked. And since the website has nothing to do with work related activities I can't ask for it to be unblocked.

You're stuck with cell phone then. Temporarily turn off the wifi access and use OTA cell data for it. Piece of cake, at least with samsung phones.

Hi, our team is working on this right now. Unfortunately, I do not have an ETA on resolution sorry. The best way for now is to click on each individual title in your wish list and it will then tell you if in stock or not.

I never turn off wifi access. But my phone also only uses wifi at home. I have unlimited data with Verizon Wireless. I typically just access the website from home instead. If I forget to do it in the morning then I might use my phone.

I've been using 3DBR now for a number of months. Overall it's good and seems to be getting better.

Usability could be improved and I would love to see these simply improvements:

1) ability to add title to wish list directly from movie list (i.e. search or "new releases" or "popular titles").
2) ability to order the wish list.

And drum roll please...the holy grail of features:

3) auto ship from the top of the wish list.

Regarding #3 . I understand that one can get a title shipped to them without 3DBR getting the previous - that's great. But say I have no titles out and I have a rental available and titles in my wish list, well then, send the top one out!

Thanks

Glad you are enjoying the service. We are working on #1 ...not sure what you mean by #2 . As for #3 , our current systems allows for movies to ship before we get them back. If we implement something like this, we would only be able to ship once we get the current title back. Hope that helps. Thanks.

re #2 : prioritize them; change the order of the movies in the list. They seem to be ordered by date added only.

Well -- I signed up last night for the 1 disk at a time rental. Looking forward to my first disk.

BTW -- I just want to make sure I follewed the instructions correctly. It said to put a disk in cart (I put in Live Die Repeat 3D) and check out. Since it had a short wait, I then repeated the process with something that was in stock (Amazing Spider Man 2 3D).

Did I do it right?

yeah nothing like seeing movies from other countries make it in. provided of course they run on zero regions or Region 1/A

trying to find a copy of Hogfather thats region free so I can point it out England don't think so and Germany looks like thats a no now. at least for Hogfather. and Michelle Dockery is young and hot and not totally black haired in there :P It's an odd Holiday movie but rather good in an odd laughing sort of way only on their $17 one out at a time. only downside is finding out something is on short wait. a week later still on short wait. smh and now they tell me it's okay to rent something else. Think more or less if it's 5 max a month , thats the max I should rent at once. or it'll overlap eventually and they don't allow that. But odds are at least with the blu rays I'll be getting them. DVD's anyone know besides Netflix who carries them especially tv shows. I've had Mork & Mindy in since Robin died in August. still on "Very Long Wait"

I know Dredd and Frankenstein are both 3D at RedBox, has anybody noticed anything else accidentally supporting 3D as well (via RedBox ) ?

I really miss Blockbuster Video. Can't believe I'd ever say that. Still, it's nice to feel like you want to watch a specific thing in 3D, and then just drive somewhere locally and rent that particular movie in 3D. If Blockbuster was still around, I would imagine they would have a small 3D section, and I'd be able to drive there on a whim, and grab a 3D movie.


3D-blurayrental is a great, no disrespect intended, but I just hate being locked into a continual service. I end up with "renter's guilt", when I'm on one of those plans.

Seems like there should be.

well we have Family Video so it's not quite the end of the world. although the old store is a bit smaller now. they added a pizza store on the end of it but being smart there's a window in the wall so you can order while looking for movies.

Well, no contract is needed for 3DBR. I rent both 3D and 2D, with no service plan. It's great that you can utilize whichever process best fits your needs

Is it technically legal for, say, 2 people to buy a movie, and share watching it between them? If so, can 5 people do it?

(No copying; just shuttling the same 3DBD back and forth)...

Something odd is going on. One, I got an e-mail yesterday showing that you posted word of the site supposedly being gone. But then I came to the thread it was gone. Second, both yesterday upon being very concerned after reading your post via e-mail and again today I went to the site and it is coming up just fine for me both at home on a MacBook using Chrome and here at work on a PC using IE. The only difference is from the past is that I'm re-directed to the site's apparently new URL (the "store-" is new):

http://www.store-3d-blurayrental.com/

Yes, I deleted it when, after another attempt, the site was accessible. Then today, it vanished again. Just now I tried again and it seems fine. Not sure what's up...glitchy Internet, I guess.

So my apologies...no need to panic as everything looks okay.
