I'm not a member and am not defending the prices as I think they are too high as well.
But.... with the discount a person could join for only 12.50 a month and get to watch waaayyyy more than just 4 single dvd's a month. As many as they want I think.
I checked the horse video rent site and I think each "level" only allows so many rentals per month, like only 4 for the $11 or $12 monthly fee . Plus I'm in PA they are in CA... lots of lost shipping time for me and they only send 1 single DVD at a time no matter what you are trying to view, not a series or set.
Even so I am considering joining beacuse they carry some of the things that interest me.
Anyway, just wanted to pass along the discount info for anyone who is looking at the NWC.
