Netflix still is a better choice. Lot cheaper (avoid that cost per movie) and a much larger library. Plus you can still get em on disk if you really want em.

I don't have a PS3, but I don't use the movie shop on Xbox Life and I wouldn't use the one on the Playstation network. Seriously, who is going to pay half as much for a digital rental as the monthly cost of a streaming survice?

I tell you one great place to get movies. Most grocery stores have a movie rental place inside of them, or at least a large number. The thing is these movies see a low rental rate in this type of location though. So you can usually buy pre-watched (open box rentals), for 5-10 dollars. This is basically from new releases on up. Of course my most active buying of or renting of movies now happens through on demand. All I have to do is tune my TV to channel 1 and it list's everything available. Even brand new releases on DVD are at most 5 dollars.
