Quickflix has a large catalogue of first release movies and TV shows available for streaming; from classic hits like The Wire to hot new releases such as The Killing. Subscribers can pay an additional fee to rent new release movies (popular right now is 22 Jump Street and Grace of Monaco) or purchase episodes of hit series like Boardwalk Empire. Subscribers can choose to expand their selection to 60,000 titles by opting for the DVDs or Blu-Ray delivery service with movies delivered right to their doors.
EzyFlix has a limited selection of 2,000 titles, but don’t let that put you off: this provider specializes in allowing subscribers to rent or purchase brand-new shows and movies before they make it to DVD. New titles available now through EzyFlix include X-Men: Days of Future Past and Grace of Monaco.
