Cheaper Movie Rentals

Redbox ( offers rentals through vending machines at some 8,000 locations across the country, often at supermarkets and stores. For as little as $1.00, you can rent movies.

Netflix ( costs as little as $5/month to view thousands of DVDs, movies and TV series, with free shipping to and from your home.

How about entirely free at the easy-to-navigate website Hulu (, you can view more than 165 movies and some 300 TV shows online from NBC Universal, Fox and cable channels that show TV classics.

CBS and ABC also offer full-length episodes of their shows. Depending on your computer, you may be able to use a "TV out" cable to connect to your TV set for "big screen" viewing.

I really do like my Netflix. I can view about 24 movies in a month because they are delivered so quickly and my monthly payment is about $18.00. That is a lot less than the $100 per month I was paying for Direct TV. They have TV documentries and even old programs like Moonlighting and old Saturday Night Live.
