Our DVD lists and catalogues usually get a fair amount of attention from our DVD rental subscribers. Even if a user does not add any DVDs to their Queue from a list, they still browse through them out of sheer curiosity
Perth, WA (PRWEB) March 11, 2009
Quickflix has published a new online DVD catalogue allowing site users to find and rent DVDs from the best directors of all time.
"It's not like you could walk into a video store and find a shelf which displayed the best directors of all time and have their films grouped under each director available to rent," said Quickflix Head of Content Joe Forte.
The catalogue is divided up into over 30 director lists with each list containing all the films available for that director on DVD in Australia.
Directors were selected based on having a number of classic films under their belt, not simply big budget spectacles. Bringing a story to life and a known ability to shoot a movie in a unique way also contributed to selection.
"There are not too many video stores, if any, that can put one title in a whole range of different, very specific sections so this is one of the advantages of online DVD rental. Having a library of more than 35,000 DVD titles available to browse online by way of different themes and characteristics allows us to merchandise DVD content, and users to find DVD content, in ways not possible in the traditional DVD hire approach that you might find at a video store," said Forte.
Quickflix is an online DVD rental service with over 26,000 subscribers who can access over 35,000 titles, more than 15 times the range of an average video store. The DVD rental service allows users to create a Queue of DVDs, which is an online list of DVD titles the member wishes to see. Quickflix then sends members the DVDs in their Queue in order of preference. To help members add DVDs to their Queue, Quickflix often publishes collections and lists of DVDs linked by a theme.
"Our DVD lists and catalogues usually get a fair amount of attention from our DVD rental subscribers. Even if a user does not add any DVDs to their Queue from a list, they still browse through them out of sheer curiosity," said Forte.
