Dear movie fanatic,
Do you remember the last time you spent hours flicking through channels, checking out trailers and scanning reviews, just to end up watching a bad movie or nothing at all?
That has to be the worst thing that can happen to a movie lover, especially when you already have good company and a mountain of popcorn waiting.
But as much as we would love to tell you that these are just isolated incidents, chances are that we are dealing with a recurring trend. Simply put, with the number of bad movies constantly increasing and options like Sky, Apple TV or Netflix failing to help you choose the good titles, everything indicates that we will be watching mediocre content more often than ever.
Alice in Videoland was created over 30 years ago as a specialist film library with not only all the greatest movies ever made, but also the very best and most interesting available on the planet. We have since amassed over 25,000 unique titles (the largest in NZ).
However, we realised that having thousands of titles makes us nothing more than just another alternative like Netflix.
This is why we came up with a feature that separates us from everything you've ever tried.
Once you join, you'll also have your own special login to our new website that lets you easily add as many films as you like to your film queue. Then you can edit your queue however you like, adding and subtracting until you have the perfect list of films ready to be sent out to you. We then automatically send you the films from the top of your film queue with our overnight courier service. The discs come in protective sleeves with a freepost return envelope included so you can send them back once you are done. As soon we get them back, we'll automatically send you more from the top of your film queue.
Until now, our film library has only been accessible to the people living in the Christchurch area. With the advent of our new free home delivery service, it’s available to all of New Zealand with just a few clicks.
Take a stroll through our award-winning store using the virtual walkthrough below.
We only have one or two copies of each film, which means we can only provide this unique service to a limited number of customers. We will not be accepting new members once we hit capacity. This could happen anytime soon so we strongly advise you to register before this happens. Once registered, you can also pause your account and resume it at anytime.
Choose one of our great value monthly plans that best suit your viewing habits. All of our plans get the same great service, including free overnight delivery and access to our 25,000 plus film library. A Prepay option is also available for those who don't watch a consistent amount of films on a monthly basis or already have a service like Netflix.

Alice DVD subscriptions are not just for those who prefer DVDs. It's ultimately a superior service to the alternatives in terms of value and film selection. Take a look at the comparison below.
NZ Film Rental Services
|Alice||25,000||Yes - Blu-Ray||$19.95 for 6 discs/month|
|Sky||410 + 50 Channels||Yes||$49.91/month|
|Aro Video||25,000||No||$80 for 10 DVDs|
Alice's is not only the best value and best selection, it's also the only one that automatically feeds you films so you don't have to stress over finding something to watch.
Once you are an online member, you can simply add the films you want to see to your queue. Your queue represents all the films we will post out to you.
We recommend you add at least 10 films to avoid waiting and this enables us to start sending you any films that are available in your queue.
We’ll send you 3 disks at once and get notified via email that they are on their way.
Once you have watched them, send them back to us in the included free post envelope.
As soon as we receive them (2-4 days) we’ll send you 3 more disks from your queue.
We also have a powerful suggestions tool which will help you discover new great films to add to your queue. We are film specialists and our goal is to provide you with a stream of quality films that you will enjoy.
Yes you sure can. In fact, it's even better because you can get new releases and 3 day hires.
We are proud to offer overnight delivery to all Alice DVD Subscription members.
We do this to ensure a great customer experience.
With Alice Home Delivery you get discs for 1 month. Our home delivery envelopes will clearly state the return date. As long as you send it back before that date it will be fine. We have a return date out of courtesy for our other customers.
We include a pre-paid return envelope with each home delivery package.
Alice delivers everywhere in NZ! (Excluding the Chatham Islands).
You can add every film to your queue, including new releases. They will then get sent out to you as soon as they come off our new release or 3 day hire boards respectively (this usually takes a few months from the time it is released).
Note: You CAN rent new releases and 3 day hires by coming into our store, as long as they are also returned on time. In this case, late fees do apply!
All of our subscriptions are based on a monthly disc limit.
Some DVDs contain multiple discs like TV shows which means each disc will count towards your monthly limit. So for example, if your subscription type says 3 discs per month and the TV show is made up of 3 discs, then that will make up your monthly limit.
However, most movies are just one disc so the above would not apply. In cases where there is a special features disc, we will not include that unless you make a special request.
Note: This disc limit is due to the nature of delivery costs as we can only fit 3 discs in each delivery package. This is also the same system both Fatso used and Netflix (before it started streaming).
If you are in Christchurch and come into our store to pick up, you can rent multi-disc DVDs and it will only count as one on your account due to the fact we are not delivering it.
Alice DVD Subscriptions attract No Late Fees!
However, DVDs do have a specified return date and is noted on the home delivery envelopes - at least 30 days from the time you receive your selections. This is necessary due to the depth of copy within the library and in fairness to your fellow Alice Members.
If you require more time, please contact us to request an extension which will be granted provided there are no bookings on your selected DVDs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Phone 03 365 0165
