      I don’t watch TV much, but I do love a good movie. I decided to treat myself and sign up for the BlockBuster online service. They promised many perks and it sounded simple and convenient. Their website was straight forward and very user friendly. I was allowed to order up to 3 videos at one time and then put additional movies in my queue so that when I shipped one back, the next movie in my queue would be sent out automatically. They did

      send notification of the movies being sent out to you as well as receiving them back once you shipped them.

      I ordered my very first Video, figuring I would start with one and see how it went. I had ordered a comedy and was all set to watch it when it arrived. I made my popcorn, got a glass of ice tea and inserted the DVD. I sat down to watch it, and the DVD player kept asking me to insert the DVD. I reinserted,


      • assuming I had done something wrong, but my DVD player still complained. I took the DVD out only to notice that it came to me broken. Needless to say, it wasn’t worth anything.

        One of the main perks that I liked is that I could drop DVD’s off at the neighborhood store if I chose. I took the DVD to the local store only to be told that all they can do is ship it back for me. I wanted to exchange the DVD

        so I could go back home and continue my plan. I was told that I can drop off the online club DVD’s for them to ship back, but that was the extent of their help in my situation. I went to the site and filled out the damaged DVD form and shipped the DVD back.

        Very discouraged, I canceled my account. It was no longer convenient for me to pay for nothing but aggravation. I do not recommend this service, at least through BlockBuster’s Online Service.
