Any places that rent R2/R4 discs to people in the US???

There are a bunch of R2 and R4 discs that I want to see (mostly TV series not avaiable in the US), but instead of shelling out a bunch of money for something that I may or may not like, I'd prefer to just rent them.

I was wondering if anyone knows of an online DVD rental store that rents R2 and R4 discs to the US?

Thanks

I think this is probably the place paradicelost was going to post:

But it doesn't look like they rent by mail yet, they are trying to determine what to charge. I've seen this place's website before. I remember filling out their "by mail" rental questionnaire almost a year ago.

I know of one that's planning to open in early September. I asked if I could post some info but he asked me not too until they're ready to go. I can say it'll a netflix style multi-region rental service. I'm not sure if they're collecting emails but I'm sure I could pass them on if anyone wanted to be notified.

I personally am hoping to see Buffy in 16:9 so I can see what all the fuss is about.

Sorry i didn't post it right away, but i've seen threads closed because of some posted sites and i didn't have the time to go back and read the rules to see if it was ok.
