I think it was $15...but don't hold me to it.

DVD portable players make airplane flying almost tolerable.

Here's the website:


They are partially owned by Blockbuster for those who hate the big blue and yellow drug-testing monopoly.

There are a couple of different companies that do it. One of them, and I can't remember the name, was $15 a day for the player with a $40 deposit and $5 a day for movies. They give you a return label to send it back or you can return it to the booth in any airport(that has them).

I'd much rather try and get a laptop with a DVD player than one of those portable players. The screen is bigger and it is more enjoyable IMHO. However, if you're renting, I understand...
