i live in a small town where we use to get our movies at a movie shop.we could rent movies and games.The owner has recently closed after many years of a successfull business.I asked him recently why he closed and he told me with so many people downloading today he just couldn't keep the store open.How about you are you one to download all your movies as well

It depends on what movie I want to see. Most the time I use the online rental places like GreenCine, if thay dont have what I'm looking for and I cant find it to but then I will download it if I can find it.

Online rental is a lot easyer for me since I'm in to Asian films. Its hard to find what films I want at Block Buster.

The gas station up the road used to rent movies. The owner told me she stopped doing it because it was not worth it to her. Not enough people were renting movies to make it worth her time. She sold the movies off.

It is so hard to make money renting now because of people downloading.

We have a Netflix account. That is what we use. Nice to have the movies come right to your door. Several video stores in our area have closed. Just the way things are nowadays. Sad that it is happening in small towns too.

I either borrow movies, buy them, or get them from online rental because it's better value. Prices charged by rental stores are ridiculous.

I don't download movies because I think its against the law. Instead we use netflicks. Its just so easy to have the movies shipped to your house, and you never have to worry about late fees.

I really don't know if its against the law-I think there is some legal sites to download-netflicks is a good choice

I don't really like downloading because it takes up too much space on my computer. I would much rather rent my movies or even buy them from a store.

I usually rent from the convenience store or buy at walmart.

We subscribe to Netflix. Apparently it is also not evident how well a business is doing, even if they appear to get a lot of business or 'are always busy' doesn't mean they are turning a profit, which is sad! The reason I say this is because I think Circuit City just went bankrupt, and I KNOW they have no shortage of customers!
