The Bentonville, Ark.-based retail behemoth said it plans to gather feedback from an initial group of customers and to fine-tune the service before launching it nationally next year.

The service is similar to that offered by Netflix, the pioneer of online DVD subscription rentals. Customers pay a fixed monthly fee and receive by U.S. mail a limited number of DVDs for as long as they want with no due dates, late fees or postal charges. Wal-Mart plans to charge $18.86 per month. Netflix's main plan charges $19.95, a price at which customers can rent as many movies as they want during a month but can have only three out at a given time.

I hope title availability is better than Netflix!!! I joined Netflix and the first 30 titles I wanted were "not available." I immediately cancelled my membership!

I liked the Blockbuster deal a couple of years ago...."30 DVDs for 30 days for $30." However after moving, the local Blockbuster is only a franchise and chose not to participate....so I chose not to give them business.

Since there are so many Walmarts in the world...why don't they just let you go to the store to get the DVDs?
