  • This article gives you some great tips on saving money and still getting the movies you want to watch. As a customer of DISH Network, I can tell you that I have recently added on the Blockbuster Movie Pass and I love it! I got it free for 3 months, which saved me money right there, and now I pay $10 a month for it and it still is saving me money. I use to have Netflix, but with them, I had both DVD and streaming service and they decided to split the services and hike the prices. My co-worker at DISH told me to try out the Movie Pass and I agreed since I was looking for something new. I now get streaming, mail-in DVD, in-store exchanges, games and Blu-ray’s at no extra charge, and so much more. My favorite part is that I have only one bill now for all my entertainment choices and I get new releases 28 days before Netflix. I love it and I use it all the time. I definitely save money by going this route.
