I did that today. There was a movie I wanted to rent which would have cost $5.99. I looked on Amazon and the BD was only $9.50 so I just bought it instead. If I watch it at least twice then it will have paid for itself.

I was going to try the service but it was not over secured connection and they wanted my credit card. I decided to pass for now.

For the little time I had this Redbox service, I actually used a prepaid American Express. This way, no worries about potential fraud as it only has value on it based on what I add. Also, if I didn't like the service (which I didn't), I didn't have to really worry about cancelling it before the 30 days were up as there was nothing on there so the charge wouldn't have gone through anyway.

I am hoping it comes to tivo, too. I am doing the trial as well but won't keep it unless I can watch it on a big screen.

Tell me about it. I once had The Sum of all Fears out for 18 moths.

That sounds like me with Netflix back in 2003 to 2005. The last few years that I watched DVDs. I had a bunch of titles that I had out for over a year before I returned them. Now when I rent a disc, if I have not watched it in a few days, I send it back no matter what. That way I have a steady stream of rentals coming, If I ant to watch them I do, if not they get returned.

I always had a personal rule with Netflix when I had one DVD at a time. It has to be returned the next day watched or not.

Wow, I don't think I was ever THAT bad.. but I think I did have a few for a few weeks, or maybe months.. though I'd still go through SOME DVDs..

Currently I'm not on netflix at all, though I do have Amazon prime and am barely playing with it -- I'd probably use it more if it were available on Tivo.. but I have played with it on iphone/ipad and will likely use PS3 at some point.. probably watch Under the Dome that way even though I'll Tivo it too to keep it... though I'll Netflix for Arrested Development some eon.
