I'm with Lovefilm for rental. Lucky that they don't charge extra for Blu-ray rentals.

consider your used blu-rays have resale value.
Renting Blu Ray rather than buying
Considering the cost of Blu Rays (and the unfortunate watch-once-only nature of most movies these days), I am thinking that with the exception of the few movies you want to watch more than once, it probably makes sense to rent Blu Rays rather than buy them.

So who offers Blu Rays for rent?

Lovefilm and Blockbuster both offer the largest selection, followed by a dedicated games site called WhyBuyGames.

They all seem to be in a tussle to offer the most as the tallies appear to change almost weekly.

This article gives a top-5 league table which is updated monthly so you can keep an eye on who's got the best selection of Blu Rays: http://www.choosedvdrental.co.uk/dvd-rental-gui...
