DVD rent by mail

Been hunting around for a swiss service similiar to LoveFilm in the UK. Seen some threads on this before but the sites listed had either gone or not in english.

Just done a google there and found this site, anyone use it? http://www.frisbi.ch/

Any other recommendations?

Looks exactly like http://www.netmovies.ch/ which I have used for a while and had no problems with, plus all in English. Seems like the same company?

There is also this one that is in French or German. It is one of the bigger ones. They have a two DVD "test" rental offer.

Re: DVD rent by mail

If you are in Lausanne, there are several Video Follies stores that have a good selection of Region 1 and 2 films in English. They also have an automate that lets you get films outside of store hours. New films are CHF 7.

Here is the link (to see where the stores are located).

frisbi and netmovies are the same company. I rented from both and the DVDs came from exactly the same address. So far I have been quite happy with the service. Received a defective DVD once and they replaced it without additional charge. Blu Ray selection is not bad either.

I decided Frisbi is better. Can't remember why though... something to do with the charges if you return the DVDs early or something like that.
