Online video rental grows

If we are to believe ASX listed online DVD rental crowd Quickflix , the bottom is falling out of the bricks and mortar video rental business while online video rentals is a booming business. However, Quickflix also claims that the video downloads business is struggling.

Quickflix operates an Australia-wide online video rentals service, which enables customers who pay a monthly sunscription fee by credit card to order rental videos online and receive them in the mail.
