Zediva DVD Rentals - New Movies Before Netflix & Redbox

submitted on March 17, 2011 by pablos17 in "Products / Gadgets"
Looks like Netflix and other movie stores have a new competitor. It would be nice to see these guys make it so that prices can go down and to have more entertainment options available to us.

Visited their website today and it looks like Zediva's registration is full, but they have an e-mail sign up for their waiting list.

NEW YORK - New online film rental service Zediva, which offers current DVD titles for as low as $1, may become the latest headache for Hollywood studios and the latest challenger to Netflix, DVD rental firms and cable video on demand services.

Zediva, which just went live to a broader audience after a year-long beta trial with what it says were a few thousand beta users, allows users to watch movies, which are newly released on DVD, via the Internet - on computers and select Internet-connected TVs, Blu-ray players and other devices - without the delays of other services.

On its Web site, the company uses the tag line “New Movies Now” and also highlights that it is offering “new movies before Netflix and Redbox.” It buys the DVDs via retail stores and other outlets, thereby making films available quickly. Its site on Wednesday mentioned such current DVD releases as The Fighter, Hereafter and 127 Hours. The company says it is focusing on current and major titles.

    I personally think they will not last very long. The movie industry cracked cases much weaker and Zediva is clearly exploiting a loophole in the law
