It's call Zip and the link is below. For 25 bucks a month...too rich for me, but maybe for other Canucks?

That's about the same price as Netflix; assuming that the $24.95 is Canadian, it works out to US$18.66 (as of 2/26/04). Netflix offers the same service for US$19.95. These flat-fee services are worthwhile IF you watch a decent number of movies and they have the DVDs you want to see.

Dudes, Netflix here in Kalifornia (uber alles) is great and worth the price once you factor in the cost of gas and time in getting to a video store. I can't imagine going to a video store again unless I NEED something same day. As long as Zip carries a diverse enough selection as does Netflix then paying a measly $25 KANADIAN is totally worth it dudes. Dudes, Chester p.s. prepare for the invasion.....we are coming to save you soon
