Films2u DVD Rental Review

Visit Films2u DVD Rental DVD Rental Site Films2u has gone out of business, but this review is kept as it was for posterity.

Films 2u appeared in 2003 as a courier DVD delivery service for Northampton only, but as of July 2008 they were using the Royal Mail and service the entire UK. This is a small, but personalised service.

We counted through Films2u's 15 genres and found only about 2,100 films, about what you'll find in many smaller video stores, but not a very big selection compared to larger online companies. In fact, to us this looks like a local independent video store which has started doing deliveries--we don't have a problem with that, it's just there's better selection out there from the larger companies.

However, the benefit of a smaller company is personalised customer service; there's certainly no other DVD rental company we're aware of that gives out the manager's (George's) mobile phone number! As some people will prefer a smaller, customer service-oriented company like this, and given the changes and price reductions, we've bumped them up a couple slots on our ranking table.

Each title had a fair bit of data, including picture, rating, release date, synopsis, stars, and director, but none of the extra information or customer comments/reviews you'd expect on a larger site. As a plus, they do run a popular loyalty scheme. If the films sent to you are returned to within a week of posting, your account will be credited with 1 point. For every 10 points you accrue, you will receive 1 free film from your request list.

 

Prices: With the change from courier to Royal Mail, Films2u have gone to a more traditional, and fairer pricing model. THey offer two capped plans, two discs total per month for only £3.50, and four discs total £6.00. They also offer unlimited rentals at industry standard prices: two discs out for £12.99 per month, three discs out for £12.99, and four discs out for £19.99. They have a four-week free trial, though most users will get through this quickly as it is capped at four discs.
