Innovative Movie Rental Service - CineNow

I recently discovered the movie rental machine at Yew Tee Shopping centre. You can rent VCDs and/or DVDs for as low as $2.00. There are many new/recent movies available, some recent titles include Casino Royale, Just Follow Law.

I got hooked by this rental service. Whenever I am free, I will rent a movie to watch. That helped me catch up with most of the movies I wanted to watch but missed. Pirates of the Caribean I & II, Casino Royale, X-Men III, Happy Feet, The Day after Tomorrow...

The new releases are at $2.00 each if you return the movie within 6 hours, the rest are at $2.49 - $3.00 each. At this price, it is cheaper than the pirated DVDs from Johor Bahru, which is at RM6.00-7.00 each (~$3.00). The concept is definitely good. Most of the time, there is a small queue at the machine. I also saw some new sign-ups. Looks like this business is taking off.

What differentiates this service with the normal movie rental service offered by DVD/VCD shops is its 24/7 availability. You can even rent or return a movie in the wee hours of the day.
