[opendtv] Re: Staples stores will soon rent DVD movies

Sony or Disney test marketed this last year. Never heard anymore about it. Disk is packaged in a gas filled container. Exposure to air causes it to turn black and play no more after 48 hours.

Staples Inc., the Framingham-based office supplies retailer,
confirmed today that it will begin offering a limited selection of
DVD movie rentals at its US stores in mid June.

"A new in-store 'no-return' DVD rental service, called Flexplay, will
let customers rent the latest movie titles without having to return
them to the store," a Staples spokeswoman wrote in an e-mail. "Ideal
for business travelers and busy small business owners on-the-go,
Flexplay will offer a fresh selection of hit movies for viewing
anytime, anywhere, and uses a patented technology that erases the DVD
after 48 hours of opening the inner package. Customers can safely
recycle the DVDs with their other plastics."
