Renting a DVD no longer means driving all the way to Blockbuster or Hollywood Video.

The new One Force DVD rental machine in the basement of the Memorial Union combines the ease of a vending machine with the convenience of more than 100 DVD titles.

The blue and yellow machine is like a DVD jukebox, with pictures of different titles and corresponding numbers. Select a number, enter it into the machine and swipe your credit card to rent the movie. Unfortunately, the machine doesn't take cash or Sun Dollars.

To return the DVD, swipe the same credit card used for the initial purchase and push the movie into the return slot.

Rentals cost $2.99 for two days and $12.99 for an unlimited monthly pass. Choices of films vary from comedies such as "Napoleon Dynamite" to dramas like "Mystic River" and "Crash."
