Game Rental Guide

We compare all three Canadian online video game rental sites, so you can pick the best. Game Access is the clear leader with top site design and customer service, even though Get Games actually stocks more of the older titles. We rank Canflix second for their cheap price and DVD rental option--they stock nearly as many titles for the next gen consoles as the games-only companies

DVD Rental Table Definitions

Value Rating: (Value Rating) Includes prices at all DVD rental levels and our assessment of what you actually get for your money.

Design Rating: (Design Rating) Includes how well the website interface is designed and easy to use; there are some really aggravating online DVD rental sites out there.

Service Rating: (Service Rating) This measure of customer service--which includes DVD turnaround times--is the least "scientific" rating, relying on reports we've gathered from the net and from personal experience.

Titles: The estimated total number of available game titles per games console. These counts change and we try to update them a few times per year.

Phone Support: Only some DVD rental companies offer a real customer service phone number; important as it can be very frustrating and slow trying to use email.

Depot Locations: This is important to weigh, as a company with a distribution center far from where you live can take several days longer for DVDs to reach you, depending on Canada Post's efficiency.

Free Trial: These are usually a standard two weeks. Read the Terms on each DVD rental company's site if you're pursuing a free trial, as many have strict requirements for cancellation. If you're very cheeky you can "free trial hop" down the list and enjoy free DVD rentals for over six months before chosing the provider for you.

Prices: In Canadian dollars per month (tax not included) for standard, unlimited 1 to 3 disc at-a-time DVD rental subscriptions. This does not include volume discounts sometimes offered for paying a year in advance--see the individual DVD rental company reviews for this information.
