Gamefly Adds DVD Rental by Mail Service

GameFly Movies splashPopular video game rental site GameFly announced today that it will begin offering DVD and Blu-ray rentals to compete directly against industry giant Netflix.

If you’re a current (or future) GameFly customer, you’ll now be able to rent flicks by mail the same way you rent video games – by adding them to your GameQ on the site. You’ll be able to find tons of great, Oscar-nominated films like 12 Years a Slave and Dallas Buyers Club once the service goes live April 4.

“We’re viewing this as a test based (on) feedback we’ve received from subscribers who asked for it,” GameFly CEO Dave Hodess told VentureBeat.

GameFly service currently costs $15.95 per month to rent one title at a time; $22.95 to rent two. That's pricier than Netflix because games are far more expensive to buy than movies. If you want a movie-only experience, check out our cutting the cable cord guide for some less-expensive streaming and rental options.

GameFly’s movie rental business is currently in beta. You can browse the titles that will be “Coming Soon” on the GameFly website.
