Author Comments: 

These films were available only from Greencine, not Netflix, at the time I rented them.

To my knowledge, Greencine's website and selection are much better than Netflix's. How would YOU compare them? I just wish I lived closer to their distribution center - then I'd definitely switch.

I experience a three- to four-day turnaround with Greencine. I average just three per month.

I use Greencine as a supplement to Netflix. Mostly because Netflix doesn't have certain titles, or lists them as "very long wait and out of print". Still, no matter whether it's Greencine or Netflix, those same titles will be difficult to obtain.

I like the Netflix site better, as far as ease of use. I like the Greencine site better for the educational parts, the forum, and their blog.

I doubt I would use Greencine exclusively, even if turnaround was the same.

Ah, okay. Now that you're back, do you care to continue discussion here?
