Everyone has heard of Netflix by now but there are also more alternatives that can offer more choices to keep you entertained in your best home theater. Besides Netflix , some of the choices include Redbox, Greencine, Blockbuster, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, CinemaNow, Comcast Xfiinity TV, and HBO Go. Some of us have not heard about the other alternative choices for watching movies so check them out and see what they have to offer.
Like Netflix, Greencine movies are delivered and returned by mail without any late fees. However, Greencine caters to a more selective moviegoer crowd than Netflix. Greencine has a large collection of indie, foreign, anime, and documentary films. That’s not to say that it doesn’t have mainstream movies. A quick search showed “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part I,” “Battle: Los Angeles,” and “Little Fockers,” among its available titles. It should be noted that Greencine happens to offer adult titles as well, unlike Netflix. Greencine also offers a limited number of video-on-demand titles, but they are not a part of the subscription and are charged a la carte. Greencine doesn’t typically offer free trials, but prices start at just $9.95 for the one-DVD-out plan. Greencine isn’t a better deal than Netflix, but if you’re a fan of the genres it specializes in, you might want to give it a shot. Keep in mind that its service is for the U.S. only.

Mobile apps: N/A
Cost: From $9.95/month for one DVD out up to $49.95/month for eight DVDs out
Greencine is the first I have heard that offers adult movies as well as specializing in other geners that can be sent to your door similar to how netfilx ships their dvds.
If you have any experiences that you would like to share that are good or bad with any of the various choices of streaming services or dvd rentals by mail then please leave a comment.
