If you're not familiar with Netflix, you set up a list of movies you want to watch, using their easy web site that's good at making recommendations based on what you like, and they mail you three DVDs at a time. As you return each DVD in their post-paid mailer, they send you the next one on your list.
I never got in the habit of renting from video stores, because returning the movies always seemed like a pain. This is why I like Netflix; it's easy to pop a DVD in the mail.
Even if you're not sure having three DVDs at a time (and as many as you want in a month, depending on how fast you watch and return them) is worth their monthly fee, it's certainly worth trying out for free.
