My only major complaint is that it takes longer to receive my titles. But every week I receive two or three new releases to watch. Releases that don't have the lower quality audio like some titles on Netflix and Redbox have.

So the fact that I can get rentals with UHD BDs, 3D BDs, 2D BDs, and Xbox One and PS4 games makes the service well worth it. Since I get two to three discs each week in one of those formats.

@Bachelor made a statement, that as I said, "hopefully won't be true for long." How is that trolling...? I know some people viewing this thread have seen my earlier thread and know what I'm referring to -- but now my hands are tied to say any more.

I'll have to wait for someone else to start a thread about my service... Who knows whether that would happen in Sep. or when (depends on how fast word spreads). But then the only "feeding" that will be happening is you eating those words.

I don't get it... I'm just another user like everyone here that wants the same thing, and so want to do something helpful for myself and everyone else! Of course, I'm thoroughly disgusted with Netflix and Redbox. And 3DBR is just too expensive (there should at least be no delays if they're gonna charge what they do), and from what I've heard here, some shortcomings like no queue and such.

No offense intended, but vagueposting is a form of trolling in this context.

From your post it was not clear that what you are are doing is promoting your own commercial service. Thanks for making that clear. If you had simply said, "I have a plan to start a service" that would not have been vagueposting.

I hope it's awesome and I'll sign up and try it if it is. I would love another source for "lossless" UHD content.

Cool

I was actually worried that I wasn't being vague enough. There is no actual service, or even a website, to "promote" at this time, which I can't do anyway. (That shouldn't be true in 5-10 days.) Although this forum (not you posters) can't seem to understand that!

I've resisted posting in this thread for a long time (I've been monitoring it as part of my market analysis/research) with any criticism or such. But listening carefully to users as if they were my own. I didn't want to threadcrap at all, so I figured a little blurb was OK -- since @3BR promoted themselves outside of this thread...

Alright, I'm going to give this a shot seeing as I REALLY LOVED Wonder Woman in the theater and would like to see it in UHD. Also, I'm a big Transformers nut.

Still, $4.50 per movie when I'm paying $.75 per movie for vanilla BluRay from Netflix seems excessive.

Have you looked at 3d's subscription plans? It's a similar model to Nefflix but slower shipping than Netflix so you can't turn as many disks through the system.

That's the $8.99 2 disc plan. :/

Tho I paid $25 for Logan 4K, have seen it twice and really have no desire to watch it again for a few years.

It's the best option currently available, so we will see how it goes. I do have a video store near me, but it's $4.27 per disc for a 1 night rental. This isn't much more, I don't have to go anywhere, and I'm not in a rush to see it in a day. It's just that I'm spoiled by a new disc everyday from Netflix.

Edit: Wonder Woman & Transformers discs also include HDR! Ok, this might be worthwhile. :-)

As long as you checkout with the new title a week before they release, you shouldn't have issues getting new titles most of the time. This is what I do and I typically have two or three new releases each week to watch. I'm on the three out plan obviously.

Last week I had the UHD BD titles E.T., Split, and Get out. This week I have on the way to me, the Wonder Woman 3D BD, and UHD BD titles Conan The Barbarian and Close Encounters.

But if I waited until release day to checkout with those titles, I would typically be on the wait list.

Ok, thanks. I went to look @ a few movies and everything I want to see has a "short wait" attached to it.

From the email I received:
"The average wait time is about 5-10 days. We guarantee that it will ship within 20 days. We also guarantee that after the rental ships, you will receive it within 7 business days (M-F)."

That's very disappointing and the whole "short wait" on all these titles frustrates me as well. I was hoping to see Wonder Woman and Transformers this month, but it looks like I'll be waiting for quite awhile. Further, when I went to cancel an order, I have to EMAIL them.

I just really, really feel like their site's garbage, their turnaround time and shipping is hot trash, and their prices seem way too high.

I'll give it a month, but right now, I'm

I too wish it were cheaper and faster. Who wouldn't?

If you find a service renting UHD blu ray via mail for cheaper and or quicker, please let us know. Right now they are the cheapest and quickest option for renting UHD blu ray.

That said, I find that I get to see most new releases within a month of release, and often the same week as release, if I order them as soon as they are available on the site. And they have a new "rush" feature where, if one is really in a hurry, one can pay a little more to have a particular title shipped sooner. (I don't know if they offer that to new subscribers immediately. You will know if that is possible since it will be part of that email saying that a title is on "short wait" and that you can reply back to authorize a small additional charge to get your copy shipped within a couple of business days if you don't want to wait for your turn in the queue.)

As soon as you put a title back in the mail, you can order a new in stock title. Again for me, I get two to three new releases each week, But I make sure to order them when they are first available to order. Which is typically one week before release. So for releases that come out next Tuesday, I will place the order today.

Which I am going to do right now.

I too am finding once again when I go on their site to rent my next movie that an overwhelming majority of what I have saved to my wish list (which is still a decent length) has a short wait. If they hadn't just raised their prices to correct this situation it wouldn't be such an annoyance, but they did. This is the best option out there currently for UHD discs, but with the short waits and the looong USPS shipping times, it's still very difficult to max out a 1 disc out at a time/5 max per month plan. Even to do that, I would have to be able to watch the movie the very night I received it in the mail to be able to turn it around the next day and start my next wait to have any shot. If I place an order today, typically if it's "in stock" it will ship the next day (at least I'll get the email the next day indicating it has shipped), and I will actually receive it in the mail typically after another 5 days. That's 6 days total for each disc not including Sundays. So based on that math there is no room for short waits in order to use what you pay for - there just aren't enough days in a month.

I got my rental copy of the Wonder Woman 3D BD today to take a look at. I purchased the UHD BD.(I wish they had a version that had both the 3D BD and UHD BD.)

I placed my rental order last Tuesday.

To me 3d-blu-ray rentals of UHD disks is a pretty fine deal! Consider that to rent a Amazon Video (streaming) version of a movies costs $8, that's only streaming quality.

Uhh... no way you're able to get to 75 cents average from Netflix?! I thought people would be doing good getting to $1.50...


Well I couldn't compete with that (and am trying to be competitive with Netflix and Redbox -- with actual usage and costs, in reality). And I'm almost ready to be tried, after basically losing the whole month of Sep. after frantically trying to research/find/buy one of the very last 3D LG OLEDs -- after seeing T2 in 3D (my first ). And then playing stuff last couple weeks.

They must not be shipping it. No way it should take 5 days in the mail. They should let you see the mailing progress/tracking (assuming they are tracking).

You should get mail from anywhere in the continental US within 3 days -- not a guarantee, of course, but very high probability (> 90%).

Even Netflix would take more than three days when I got a Disc from a West Coast Distribution center. I'm on the East Coast.

The last Disc I received was the newest Transformers UHD BD. I received a shipping email on Friday 9/22 and received the disc on Monday 9/25. But 3d-blurayrental ships from somewhere in the middle of the country.

I'm not saying that's entirely the rental company's issue, only stating that there is a shipping lag that complicates things where "short waits" cannot coexist in the same equation and make some of the subscriptions work out. There probably is a day delay between email and shipment. I've had Amazon Prime shipments that I know are coming from a warehouse about 15 miles from my town, that are delivered to my post office very early in the morning the day they are due, that are not delivered to me that day. In that case my local post office's inefficiencies work out in my favor due to Amazon's policy where I'm able to continue to extend my Prime subscription for free. In the case of this subscription however, I'm just stuck with an inefficient delivery system that makes "short waits" problematic when my interests lie in the newer releases.

You’re right. I just looked at my history and I’m averaging about 15 per month ~ $1.50. Next month I will do better.

With 3 out @ a time, new disc every day, 30 days in a month, $22 month, 73 cents per disc. Thats how I got there. But no mail on Sundays makes it more like 26 discs per month best case scenario.

It might be due to location, just oustside Chicago. If I mail a disc, it gets to them the next day, they mail another and that gets to me the next day. So if I watched one every day, I could achieve perfection!

3D BluRay took like 2 days to get me a disc as well.

Hmm, dang, well...

But what about throttling?

And there's at most 27 days to get mail in a month (26 going by your 30 days), after at least 4 Sundays.

And they don't mail on Saturdays, so that's 23 (22) days at most that they can mail a disc.

But you're saying you're getting 30/month with 3-at-a-time and 6-7 each week?

(Oh, just saw your edit. So 3-4 per week...)

Throttling?

They don’t ship on Saturdays? I could have sworn I got them on Monday before...

But yeah, I’m not as cool as I thought I was.

You can only rent one disc at a time according to their FAQ. And you pay for each rental.

I can do the at 3d-blurayrental. Only I'm not limited to one disc at a time. I could pay for individual rentals and get multiple discs at once if I wanted. In addition to my monthly subscription rentals.

Agreed but hey they are just starting up. A year from now they could be a viable option, unless Netflix gets smart and rents 4K discs via DVD.com. I wonder where they ship from???

OLED C8, Yamaha RX-A2060
Panasonic UB820, Tivo Bolt Vox

Cool to see competition even if they charge more and offer less. Over time it may help. For now, there is no value prop that I can see.

I've been on the 15 disk a month plan for 3 months with 3D Blu-ray, and I can say that I have always got my 15 disks within the month and I order 50/50 Blu-ray/4K. I have gotten some new releases quickly, and some I have had to wait a week or two for them to ship.

Customer service responds quickly and professionally, and I am very impressed with their selection of 4K and Blu-ray disks.

Having said all that, the weak link seems to be the USPS. Their service is slow, and getting worse. I have two titles that I haven't received yet from the 17th and two more from the 23rd. They will probably show up all on the same day, whenever they do show up. So 13 days and 7 days IF I receive them Monday, and I no longer have any expectation that will happen.

So we are all at the mercy of the USPS and I am learning that there is no mercy.

I can turn it up to "11"

Having read some of the more negative posts on this thread, I'm compelled to say that I don't find their pricing "expensive"...but then again I value convenience and quality over quantity. Having subscribed in the past to the two major disc-rental outlets, I appreciate having discs that actually work in my players, as well as access to the more "obscure" titles. Both of my previous services often went weeks without being able to provide a single disc, so I don't mind waiting and paying per title.

As my college chums used to say, "If you have to ask, you can't afford it".

Definition of "Stupid": Knowing the truth, seeing the truth, but still believing the lies.
