Filipino Movie Rentals is the better of the two Filipino DVD rental services serving the United States, in our opinion. Though small, its design is slicker than most niche DVD rental sites.
It has many of the features you'd expect from a large, mainstream DVD rental site. Their collection is listed in a generous 15 genres listed in each. However, the total inventory seems on the small side--again, only really appealing to the Filipino niche market.
The website seemed on the slow side loading, and indeed some of the screens wouldn't load to browse films and such, something which is worrying. They also lack a customer service phone number, and say it could take up to three days to get back to them on email queries. We were not able to find much comment on this company on the web, so we gave it a fairly low service rating given its small size and the factors already mentioned.
Filipino Movie Rentals also has some extra like buying gift certificates. They are owned by Megastar Home Entertainment, based in Texas.
Prices: Filipino Movie Rentals has a reasonable set of fees: for one DVD out, unlimited $9.95 per month, for two discs out, $14.95, and for three DVDs out, $19.95. In late 2006, they ceased offering free trials.
