Most DVD rental companies offer at least a 14 day free trial, so you could always try them all and see which one suits you best, that means you would have over 2 months of free rentals if you tried them all!
DVD Rental companies also seem to price the monthly rental depending on how many DVDs you can rent at once, most companies allow you to rent 1, 2 or 3 DVDs at once. The more dvds you rent at once the more your monthly rental will be.
Also all companies let you keep the dvds for as long as you want, and they all provide stamped addressed envelopes for you to return your dvds in.
If you decide to just stream your movies to your PC, Mac, Tablet, Games Console or TV then you can get a 30 days free trial from Netflix or Lovefilm and see if you prefer the streaming service to receiving DVDs in the post. Now with a streaming service you can watch as much TV as you like.
Starting with a 30 day, no-strings-attached free trial, members choose the films they want to watch and add them to a “queue” – a preference list. DVDs are sent to users by first class post and can be kept for as long as desired - there are no late charges. The user then returns their DVD in a pre-paid envelope, and the next selection in their queue is dispatched.
After the two week free trial the user can opt to stay on, and at this point the service continues as before, for a monthly membership fee from £5.99. There is no minimum term of subscription and the user can cancel at any time provided all their DVDs have been returned.
