I used Gamefly, before they added streaming to their service.
I liked it, because it was 16 bucks a month, and I was able to play 3 to 4 games in that time frame. So 16 bucks vs 50-60 dollars per new game, it was a win-win IMO.
I left Gamefly and switched to Blockbuster.
As a Dish subscriber, I only have to pay 10 bucks a month for blockbuster, so it's a savings of 5 bucks per month compared with gamefly.
Add to that, I can also get movies if I wanted to.
The turn around time seems to be as long as gamefly. We average about 4 maybe 5 disks [if lucky] a month. I think Netflix has a faster rotation. We could go to the next level and get 2 disks at a time, but that increases the bill by about 5 bucks.
Over all, however the service is pretty good. Though we have received damaged disks twice in the mail, Blockbuster was quick to replace them.
Also, by subscribing to Blockbuster@Home, we have access to the digital streaming. Though I haven't seen evidence of that, because the Streaming page doesn't require a Dish subscription nor a Blockbuster one.
Is their streaming service. To unlock the "premium" channels you have to enter your Dish account number. Then the channels you pay for are unlocked. It's basically he free hulu site with a dish skin on it.
But to sum it up:
If you have a Dish account, you can save 5 bucks a month.
If you want to get games for PC as well as console and hand held devices, gamefly is the way to go.--
