No one is the lesser for using this. The reason it exists is because the price point opening. The critique is more from a business perspective. It's just not long term viable. All it will take is for Netflix to start getting new releases and for itunes and other on demand services to drop their price and they are redundant. I give it a five year window tops.

Anyone notice the clamp down on torrents lately?



I thought maybe it was just me, but I went to one I have used before (KA) and just kept getting redirected to some other site that wanted to download all sorts of crap on my computer so I didn't bother.

FWIW I only download episodes of shows that I missed that have already been broadcast, I have never felt the urge to download a movie.

Shaw VOD is pretty useless for watching previously aired shows unless they are on CTV or Shaw.
Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

I noticed a Redbox kiosk at the Uptown Walmart, $1.50 per day rental, $2 for Blu-ray.

Redbox is pulling their 1400 machines out of Canada.

They USED to have video game rentals (awesome!) but those went away.

Suppose it's renting movies from the GVPL (to rip for the kids) or iTunes!

Why bother in these days where you can just go on google play or telus or Shaw on demand?


It lasted slightly longer than I would have guessed but it was a dumb idea.

I saw the Red Box when I went to Wally world out in the western communities but didn't see any movies for rent that I recognized. That might have something to do with their demise.

 

I recently moved to Foul Bay in sw Oak Bay and discovered the small store on Central Ave. They still have fairly recent DVD rentals and I did just that last Sat night.

A few corner stores in the core still offer DVD rentals. Oceanic on Catherine Street may still but I haven't checked in a while.


Know it all.
Citified.ca is Victoria's most comprehensive research resource for new-build homes and commercial spaces.

They also do a brisk business in the summer with ice-cream cones.
