DVD Direct went out of business in 2011, but this review is kept just as it was for posterity.
With only about 6,000 titles, DVD Direct have the smallest of Australia's online rental company inventories, only about twice times as large as the average video store in fact. They do offer some game rentals on the 2 or more disc at-a-time plans (only available after one full month of membership). However, these are only a handful of older PS2 and Xbox games.
We like DVD Direct's 'Fair Go' service - you tell them when you have posted your DVDs back and they then pledge to dispatch the next one(s) on the next business day - rather than waiting for the returns to arrive like most companies. This is particularly useful if you're located in a remote location by reducing turn-around time, increasing the number of movies you can potentially see in a month and therefore giving better value for money too!
DVD Direct has recently begun stocking Blu-Ray High Definitions discs, though their inventory system makes them difficult to count, perhaps 400+ titles.
While we've scored them highly for service on the basis of their 'Fair Go' system and good customer reviews, sadly they currently offer a limited service -- shipping only to Western Australia, South Australia and Northern Territory at present. On the bright side, this means they are realistic about feasibility of fast turnaround of DVD rentals across the areas they do service and suggests they are putting the customer first.
Prices: Rental plans start from $17.95/month for a single DVD at-a-time. The highest number of discs at-a-time they offer is 4, for $46.95, and all their plans allow unlimited total rentals per month.
