Movietrak went out of business in 2005; this review is kept as it was for posterity.
Movietrak was founded in 1999 and claims to be Europe's first DVD rental-by-mail company, but is now actually powered by DVD 365--which gives it a pretty good engine. The interface also looks very much DVD 365, meaning its browse by genre selection is disappointing, but it gains points for being able to search and sort by titles, actors, and directors. However, we've heard of some problems filling your high-priority positions, especially new releases. Unlike most other services, it also has 4,000 music CDs available, which could be a big reason to subscribe if you think you'll use that advantage. Movietrak's delivery turnaround times have been characterized as average compared to other rental companies.
In June 2005, Screenselect announced it was acquiring rival DVD 365 along with its three affiliate companies Qflicks, Movietrak, and Mailbox Movies (see new story). Given the inevitable disruption during the takeover, we'd steer clear from this site for a few months.
Prices: Movietrak's free trial period is for two weeks, with its 1-disc subscription for a standard £9.99, 2 discs for £12.99, 3 discs for £14.99, 4 discs for £21.99, and 5 discs for £26.99.
