SAN FRANCISCO, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenCine (www.greencine.com), where film addicts get their fix, has announced that it is adding sales of new DVDs to its industry leading Rent-by-Mail and Video-on-Demand (VOD) services. This marks the first time in history that a vendor has offered all three services from the same location. Until now, GreenCine has primarily been known for boasting the Internet's largest library of independent, documentary and international films, including thousands of titles that can't be found through any other service. With the launch of this new service, GreenCine adds thousands of mainstream titles to its existing catalog, enabling it to service a wider base of film lovers. Open to members and non-members, the new DVD sales service pushes GreenCine's library to more than 80,000 available films across over 250 genres.
"We started GreenCine because we wanted to offer something that film fans had never had before, a comprehensive site that catered to different film appetites, created a sense of community among its members and served as a conduit for discovering new films," said Dennis Woo, co-founder and president of GreenCine. "We started to gain a reputation throughout the film world as a trusted resource for news and interviews. There were tens of thousands of non-members visiting our site daily to read the articles and reviews and browse the discussion boards. By launching DVD sales we are meeting the expectations of our audience. We've become the chief destination for informed film lovers, and can now offer them a range of services and array of films that is unmatched in the industry."
Specific highlights from GreenCine's DVD sales service include:
-- Pricing and Selection
Drawing from one of the largest libraries of independent, documentary and international films in the world, GreenCine features competitive pricing on new releases, catalog titles and TV and movie box sets.
-- Free Priority Shipping for all orders over $50
While other online vendors provide a free shipping option, their offers usually take weeks for delivery. GreenCine will offer free USPS Priority Shipping for orders over $50, which usually delivers within days.
-- 5 distribution centers for DVD Sales
GreenCine has 5 distribution centers, guaranteeing fast, reliable shipping to everywhere in the US.
Working with the belief that people's favorite movies are stepping-stones to a bigger world of cinema, the GreenCine staff is committed to broadening movie tastes by personally recommending films and interviewing influential filmmakers. Regardless of the movies consumers are looking for when they find the site -- whether it be Sundance winners or mainstream hits -- the DVD sales service enables GreenCine to offer movies for its entire audience and the knowledge, expertise and content to help them find countless others.
"Since its launch, GreenCine was largely perceived as a specialty shop catering only to independent film enthusiasts," said Jonathan Marlow, GreenCine's director of content acquisitions and business development. "In reality, we've created a comprehensive site that allows any movie fan to expand their awareness and locate films of every sort. While most e-tailers merely supply access to movies familiar to the average customer, GreenCine provides a discovery engine for anyone to find those same titles while learning about remarkable films that they never knew existed. Our aim is to facilitate the entire process, from initial discovery to download, rental or sale."
