DVDXpress is a media company that owns and operates a network of over six hundred DVD rental kiosks in supermarket locations in 24 states from New York to Florida to California and as has recently expanded to Hawaii. The company was founded in 2001 by entrepreneurs Greg Meyer and Jason Tanzer as a way to fill the need for a more efficient and cost effective method to provide DVD rentals in existing retail establishments. DVDXpress has the majority of its kiosks in A&P, Pathmark, Waldbaums, Superfresh, Brookshire Brothers, Minyards, Pueblo, K-Mart, Foodland (Hawaii) and BI-LO/Bruno's supermarkets. DVDXpress kiosks offer DVD rentals at a price point between $1 and $1.49 per day. Customers can also opt for the monthly subscription option which enables them to rent an unlimited number of DVDs, one at a time, for $12.99 per month.
In May 2008, DVDXpress launched service in the United Kingdom with installations in Tesco supermarkets in the London and Manchester markets offering DVD rentals for the price of 1.5 GBP per night. The UK Website is www.mydvdxpress.co.uk.
The DVDXpress kiosks utilize RFID technology to identify the DVDs that it dispenses and wireless technology to communicate to the Internet. The DVDs are dispensed in their original studio cases from the kiosk. Customers have the ability to browse availability of titles real-time via the company's website and reserve movies to be picked up at the kiosk at a later time.
Competitors include Redbox, The New Release, DVDPlay, and Blockbuster/NCR.
