LETTER OF THE MONTH
We have several Apple TVs and we stream 100% of everything that we watch. I think the price to rent movies or shows is way too high. I have a RedBox nearby that I have considered spending a couple of bucks renting stuff from instead, but the convenience of streaming wins every time. Buying movies at $10.00 a piece doesn’t seem to sting so much, so I tend to buy movies instead of renting them. With a cold snap that we recently had, I wanted to binge the whole
Death Wish series with Charles Bronson. The rental price per movie was $3.99 and the purchase price was $4.99. In that case, it is a no brainer. But, when it is $7.00 to rent and $20.00 to buy, that does make you have to think about it. My wife will rent something half a dozen times — I am still trying to get her out of that expensive habit! DAN MATNEY We absolutely agree — when you can buy something, even if it’s not a title you’re sure you’ll watch again, why would you not spend a few extra dollars to have it forever?
