The best way to rent DVDs.
The Low Down: PushPlay have a fine selection of over 70,000 DVDs, and are regarded as the premier online rental agency in South Africa. The model is loosely based on Netflix in the United States, where DVD rentals are selected online and delivered and returned by pre-paid Fastmail to your letterbox.
Pros: The best thing about Pushplay... you get to keep the DVDs as long as you want so there are no late fees. You also get to choose what you want to watch in advance, by creating a wish list (queue) from a bigger selection than most conventional rental stores offer. Delivery is usually prompt with DVDs arriving in your post box. Return them in the pre-paid, pre-addressed PushPlay Fastmail envelopes.
Contracts range from R45-R219 per month for 1 DVD at a time (only 2 DVDs per month) to unlimited 6 DVDs at a time plans. PushPlay is available in the greater Cape Town area, Gauteng, Kwazulu-Natal, Bloemfontein and Knysna at present.
Cons: Keeping the DVDs as long as you want, means that some DVDs rarely become available, so don't hold your breath if you're waiting on that one crucial foreign film. If you lose a DVD, expect to pay R140 for a replacement.
