Movies online ... but I still like convenience of Xtravision

deal of the week this week comes from Screenclick.com, which I discovered recently.

You sign up for a package (€7.99 to €31.99 per month) and then choose from over 15,000 films, posted out to you. I opted for Silver, which allows me to order an unlimited number of DVDs, two at a time.

You search by title, or in my case by actor -- George Clooney (right) ... mmm. They arrived within two days with a pre-paid return envelope. There's no rush to return them, and no late fees. Great for kids who can get games for their laptop. Still, you can't beat Xtravision for the pure convenience. And with the local shop, you don't have the hassle of posting the movies back, either.
