Amazon UK Starts DVD Rentals

Netflix actually cancelled plans for UK DVD rentals and I bet Amazon had something to do with it. Amazon UK has started two DVD rental plans of 7.99 pounds for 2 DVDs at a time with a 4 per month limit and 9.99 pounts for 3 DVDs at a a time with a 6 per month limit. Notice the different business model vs. Walmart, Netflix, and Blockbuster of limiting DVD rentals to a set number each month. We probably can expect more of the same when Amazon decides to start their US service.
