Is itunes the only service that allows you to rent movies online?

Are there any other services for renting or buying movies for download online?

Thanks :)

What platforms do you have? I believe that Zune (on Xbox 360) also offers rentals.

Fairly limited in NZ. iTunes would have the biggest collection for the NZ market at present, I believe.

Zune marketplace on Xbox 360 lets you rent/buy movies in NZ. Will be launching for PC's outside USA in October.




Do whatever you want to do man.

you can buy tivo online now too - the 'exclusive' telecom deal has ended i believe

check out www.tivo.co.nz

"Telecom Broadband customers will continue to enjoy unmetered CASPA downloads, but if you are with a different ISP, please be sure to consult them for details on your monthly download quota and review our guide to downloads"

i use my apple tv and itunes on a regular basis. its actually really good, lots and lots of movies and rentals aren't bad.

you maybe able to get them cheaper at a video store on "cheap tuesdays" or something, but its more convenient with itunes, i rathat pay a few dollars more and use itunes.

i have 100gb a month, 1.8gb doesnt really bother me. i would have to rent 60ish movies a month to go over that.

Well that's nice and dandy for you but 99.7% of home internet users in NZ don't have 100gb of data per month :)
