Flix on Stix: Rent Moviez Using Flash Drivez or SD Cardz

by Lambert Varias

The Flix on Stix scheme is simple: customers bring their own USB drive or SD card to a kiosk and rent a digital copy of the movie/s they want. Payment is made via credit card. The files will then delete themselves when the specified number of days are up. While it’s better than conventional brick and mortar business models, I wonder if Flix on Stix is entering the movie rental game too late.

I’m not sure if the price range displayed on their ad is accurate, but if it is then Netflix is still a better option for US customers. Here’s the full ad, complete with maracas-infused generic ad music:

Assuming they have a decent movie selection, I think this service will do best on places where streaming video services are not yet available. The Flix on Stix website boasts that with their kiosk, you’ll save on time and gas because you don’t have any discs to return, but the fact is you still have to drive to a kiosk to rent movies, whereas with Netflix and other similar services you don’t even have to leave your room to start watching videos. What do you think? Will you try out Flix on Stix if it becomes available where you live?
