|Today I took a couple of minutes to check out Blockbuster and Netflix to see if I wanted to join again. I had an online Blockbuster plan for a while, but dropped it when they couldn't get DVDs to our apartment very quickly or reliably.|
It's funny, but neither company advertises their rates anymore. In order to even see Blockbusters plans, you have to begin signing up for a "free" trial. Netflix has theirs in a FAQ, but it is harder to find than it used to be.
I tend to like to give feedback to difficult to use websites when I can, so I thought I'd contact Blockbuster to tell them how frustrating it was to not be able to see their rates prior submitting information to sign up for a trial. Unfortunately, the form to fill out to submit a comment is longer than to set up a trial.
When I was member of Blockbuster.com, I really liked one feature they had where you could return a video directly to a store for a free in-store rental. Apparently this is now an upgrade you can purchase for your account instead of a basic feature.
I don't know for certain that I'm going to sign up for Netflix, but I'm pretty sure I won't be working with Blockbuster.
