Movies take viewers on journeys to other worlds and historical periods without having to leave the couch—which is a noble act, as most couches suffer separation anxiety when left home alone. Avoid the therapy bills with today's Groupon: for $15, you get three months of unlimited DVD rentals three at a time from Zip.ca. The first month of service is always free for new subscribers, with each subsequent month regularly priced at $25—raising this Groupon's total value to $50. Following the three months included under this Groupon, customers will automatically be charged the full monthly value for the unlimited three-at-a-time DVD service. Customers that do not wish to maintain this service at full price must cancel or alter their subscription before the beginning of the fourth month; to cancel or alter, visit the contact page.
Zip.ca's online movie and television emporium provides film buffs with a selection of more than 82,000 titles ranging from Ferris Bueller's Day Off to Inception to build a personal list of must-sees deliverable directly to their mailboxes. With Zip.ca's most popular plan, DVDs are speedily mailed to your door, so the number of rentals granted per month is limited only by the viewers' ability to cruise through their discs, though you can only have up to three discs at one time. As benevolent as it is convenient, Zip.ca offers free shipping throughout Canada, postage-paid return envelopes, and no late fees so customers can linger over their favourite flicks without experiencing the debilitating debt often incurred at libraries and riverboat casinos. For the digitally advanced, Zip.ca also offers Blu-rays at no extra charge. Zip.ca makes an eco-friendly alternative to traditional video stores, as it allows customers to avoid polluting the atmosphere with car fumes or bursts of profanity triggered by an overlooked late fee from 1984 for the film Nineteen Eighty-Four.
Zip.ca's three movie-distribution methods, by mail, kiosk, and streaming, bring flickering movies into viewers' homes without the hassles of traditional movie rental, the cost of purchasing films to watch, or the inaccuracy of friends reenacting blockbusters with cardboard props. Mail subscribers digitally thumb through Zip.ca's website, selecting titles from more than 82,000 movie and television choices that arrive in mailboxes within a few days. Watched films may be mailed back to Zip.ca, which sends the next flick on the subscriber's list once a movie is returned.
A trip to a nearby movie station lets Zip.ca kiosk users choose from up to 1,000 new, recently released, and classic titles, as well as Blu-ray copies of popular films, all available for rental with an easy selection process and the swipe of a credit card. Those who refuse to leave their house until the earth is in HD may enroll in Zip.ca's streaming plan, whose ever-growing selection of titles may be streamed to one's computer, television, or gaming system.
“Having the machine outside like some Red Box machines would make it more accessible when the Metro is closed.”
“They need a better selection of movies. Often the ones I want are not available.”
“Awesome concept! So fast and convenient. Only down side is that the machine closest to me (150 Katimavik) seems to break down a lot, though I haven't seen that...”
