Netflix? In Japan? Not quite, but... [Oct. 1st, 2006|04:55 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Apparently there are 4 online DVD rental services in Japan, all with similar business models to Netflix (which doesn't operate outside the USA, as far as I can tell). They are:

Tsutaya Discas; Livedoor Posren (as in postal rental); DMM; and GEOLAND.

They all appear to have a decent selection of English-language movies, and they all have free trial periods. They also don't have any help available in any language besides Japanese. Maybe I should check 'em out over the next few months.
