I didn't know these machines were still around. I don't watch movies so I wasn't aware people still rent DVDs. I would think streaming is the way to go these days, it's a lot more convenient. This machine was located in a shopping plaza and currently out of order.
That is a rare sight. What's next VHS? 【ツ】ReplyDelete
And that doesn't surprise me in this day and age.ReplyDelete
I haven't seen one of those machines in a while. I think most of them have been retired.ReplyDelete
Yes that is something from long ago...ReplyDelete
Maybe it's out of order because it hasn't been used in years!ReplyDelete
I've never seen a machine like this. But I don't know if in some shops here are any more possibility to rentReplyDelete
Time flies too fast.ReplyDelete
Ours was taken out at our grocery store, but I do see DVDs in stock around the counter. And we still get some checkouts at the library too. Who knew how nostalgic this would be...=)ReplyDelete
...this is a relict of the past.ReplyDelete
I have seen these machines in our local Walmart. I have never tried to rent one of the movies. Take care, enjoy your new week!
I still occasionally borrow DVDs from the library. I even still have a working cassette player, but the library retired tapes long ago.ReplyDelete
I still prefer physical copies over the idea of streaming.ReplyDelete
Intertesting Archive There Mr Bill - And In Another 10 Years, Kids Will Ask, " What Is It?"ReplyDelete
That’s a new one for me too, Bill.ReplyDelete
We have RedBox here and there but most people stream it via Netflix or Hulu or Prime here. Good picture.ReplyDelete
We don't have these machines around any more. But I still watch DVDs as well as stream movies. I love movies, but haven't been in a theater in almost two years. They are still not safe places.ReplyDelete
DVDs... I thought it was a thing of the past. : )ReplyDelete
I still own some DVDs but haven't played them in years now. Things change so quickly now.ReplyDelete
A real old-fashioned dinosaurReplyDelete
I havent used this machine before but looks very colorful and interesting. This device and this kind of devices should be saved in the special museum.ReplyDelete
I saw such a machine... in Perth.ReplyDelete
We are old, we still buy DVDs...
Se hace extraño, verlas en la actualidad.ReplyDelete
I know what a DVD is but maybe they are corrupt because it is no longer used :)ReplyDelete
I wonder how old it is? I remember the days of stocking up ones for weekend amusement.ReplyDelete
Very good have never seen such a machineReplyDelete
We have something similar called RedBox where we can rent movies from machines like this.ReplyDelete
We have a closet of DVDs and are not sure what to do with them all. At least the VCR tapes are gone. I think I found 2 the other day.ReplyDelete
There are some of those machines in the area I live (I had to Google it to see if there were) but I think I've only used one once, and that was when they first came out. There are so many ways to watch movies and shows nowadays I don't know why someone would need the machines unless they can't afford anything else.ReplyDelete
There is a machine like that in front of the Dollar General in town and I see people using it.ReplyDelete

Maybe the out of order sign is an omen for how popular these machines are. I also still see a few around, but have to agree with you that streaming is so much more convenient.ReplyDelete
Boa noite meu querido amigo. Parabéns pela excelente matéria.ReplyDelete
I've never seen a machine like this.ReplyDelete
Cool photo, Bill!
Even though I've seen video venting rentals I've never used ones. Now it seems like I stream most everything.ReplyDelete
Oh must be out of order due disuse!ReplyDelete
In this context, everything evolves at great speed... Have a good week, Bill,ReplyDelete
Yup, I'd think a little behind the times there, I somehow doubt it will ever get fixed. We watch movies on streaming occasionally -- even before covid we hadn't been to a movie theater in ages.ReplyDelete
no... I never seen this kind of machine for long time...ReplyDelete
Now that you mentioned it Bill, I haven't seen a DVD rental machine in a while. I recall there was one outside a nearby retail pharmacy, but don't recall if it's still there.ReplyDelete
Eu ainda tenho DVD's aqui em casa... mas realmente deixei de ver estas casas...ReplyDelete
Um precioso achado, que nos remete para um passado... não tão distante ainda...
Gostei da imagem! Um grande abraço!
