Dear movie lover,
Do you enjoy watching quality films in the comfort of your own home? But do you often find it difficult to find something you like?
You might even have a lot of options like Sky, Apple TV or Netflix but you still end up watching mediocre films or nothing at all.
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. Read on...
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. But you don’t need to wait long until we send you more discs, simply mark them as returned on your queue screen and you’ll have more discs the very next day!
Until now, our film library has only been accessible to the people living in the Christchurch area. But now, 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 to ensure a great experience for all subscribers. This could happen anytime soon so we strongly advise you to register before this happens. TIP: 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.
We are so confident you’ll love our service that we offer a FULL 30-DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!

This is a question we get asked often and our answer is always the same. First, other services lack true depth of good films. And second, the good films they have are hard to find.
The truth is that 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||From $11.95/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 in terms of film selection, but it’s also the best in terms of value for money!
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 multiple 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 (overnight delivery) we’ll send you 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.
With Alice Home Delivery you can keep your discs as long as you want!
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.
Need it longer? No problem, just email us to request an extension at firstname.lastname@example.org
We include a pre-paid return envelope with each home delivery package.
Alice delivers everywhere in NZ! (Excluding the Chatham Islands).
Yes, most New Releases are available for all subscription members. However, there is an additional $2.99 per New Releases and $2.49 for Recent Releases. This is because we include a seperate courier bag for you to return them within 3 days of receiving them (in the fairness of others). This fee only covers our costs but we feel it’s important to offer New Releases. If you can wait a month or two, you can add the New Release to your queue anyway and we’ll send it to you once it’s not a New Release.
In conclusion there is a small fee to watch New Releases right away or no fee to watch them later.
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!
And you can keep discs as long as you want (excluding New and Recent Releases which are due back 3 days from receiving them).
You can cancel or pause your account at anytime by simply calling us at 03 365 0615 and we’ll cancel your account immediately provided all discs have been returned.
Note: We cannot cancel your account until all discs have been returned. If you request to cancel your account before all discs have been returned, then we will only process the cancellation once we receive the discs back. Upon successful cancellation or pausing all monthly payments will stop immediately. Pausing your account works exactly the same way.
Great. Now just select a plan that best suits you.
