Netflix is the king of online DVD rentals.
But me, I rent with Greencine. And in the last couple of months, Greencine has announced two developments that makes it as good as, if not a better, service than Netflix.
First, they lowered their monthly rate to $19.95. So it now identically matches Netflix.
Second, they’ve introduced porn. Errr, I mean, “Adult.” This is something that Netflix will never do, as CEO Reed Hastings involvement with California public schools pretty much precludes him from being a smut provider.
Both of these, in conjunction with the fact that Greencine stocks more indie, international, and just plain weirder titles, and that it gives a percentage of proceeds to SF Bay Area film organizations, AND it has a friendly and attentive customer service staff, well, it makes staying a Greencine member that much easier.
