Good Thoughts On iTunes vs. Xbox vs. Tivo for Movie Rentals

Posted by wholeenchilada on February 26, 2008

Here’s a post with some great info on iTunes vs. Xbox vs. Tivo for Movie Rentals:

I use iTunes every now and then to rent a movie for my iTouch; usually when I’m traveling. Last night I rented a movie via my XBox 360 from Microsoft and previously, I’ve rented movies from Amazon’s Unbox from my Tivo. Here is a chart laying out the basics of each of the three options. Below it I’ll discuss my thoughts on them.
