    I don't see anywhere on the Netflix website that they deliver to Canada (Toronto, Ont. is where I'm interested). Does anyone know if they do? If not, what is the Canadian equivalent of Netflix.

    thanks

    You can try Movies For Me, they're located in Ontario. Two week free trial, $24.95/month Cdn after that.

    Not a bad selection of titles, getting more in fairly regularly. They're by no means extensive, though.

    try DVDhype.com I liked it except for the turnaround time was too high. I was looking at 12 days between orders on the west coast. Maybe the turnaround will be better in T.O.
    As soon as they get a hub in Vancouver I'm back in.

    I've been considering giving
    www.rentadvd.ca a shot. Their selection is fantastic (Criterions, foreigns, etc).
    And their rates are:
    Rent 1 title at a time = $10/month + tax
    Rent 2 titles at a time = $17/month + tax
    Rent 3 titles at a time = $23/month + tax

    I'd probably go cheap with 1 title at a time, since I always have plenty of my own to watch... I'd also like to know how fast they deliver after reciving the previous title, etc... I'd love to hear from any users.

    Here's their FAQ for the curious: http://www.rentadvd.ca/faq.jsp

    i should mention my primary interest is opera.
    Moviesforme, DVDhype & rentadvd.ca don't list any. I searched for Tosca. Netflix lists around 100 in its opera category.

    I was with rentadvd.ca for a few months. They seem to have a huge inventory, but none of my to 50 choices were ever available over the 3 or 4 months I was with them. DVDHype is much better at getting you the movies you choose.

    Marc.
