Videobuster works via the web browser of your PC, via app on your smartphone or via smart TV on your television. Depending on how you want to watch your film, you can register and, for example, take out a rental subscription if your desired DVD should be delivered to your home. It will then be sent to you by post free of charge and you can send it back with the stamped envelope after the loan expires. If you want to stream a film spontaneously, you don’t need a subscription. All you need is an account with Videobuster * and you can then rent your film online (without downloading) or buy it.
3. Does Videobuster also run via an app?
You can also use video busters via an app. For your smartphone, simply download the film app from the App Store or Google Play and register there. If you want to stream Videobuster * on the TV, you can do it via AirPlay or you can use Apple TV, Android TV or Chromecast.
4. How much does Videobuster cost?
The prices for video busters * depend entirely on how you use the online video library. For example, do you only want the Video on demand service you only pay for the movie that you want to stream. The prices for all films start at 0.99 euros and you have 48 hours to watch the titles as often as you like. You can of course also buy the film, but then it costs a little more.
If you want to use the online video library to watch DVDs and Blu-rays (including Blu-rays in 3D and 4K UHD) from home, you need a subscription. This Rental subscription costs either 6.99 euros a month if you only want to rent two films a month or 6.99 euros for the first and then 10.99 euros for all subsequent months. You will then receive four films each.
There is also the option of storing DVDs and Blu-rays in à la carte rental to borrow. With this option, you pay between EUR 0.99 and EUR 6.99, depending on the film, and you can have up to six films delivered to your home at the same time by post.
5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of video bus?
Two great advantages of Videobuster * are the mailing and the unique selection of films. With 70,000 films and film novelties in DVD and Blu-ray subscription, you have a very large selection of films and series at your disposal. It is also practical that you can send the titles back by post whenever you want, regardless of a loan period. You don’t pay any shipping costs and you can cancel your subscription on a monthly basis.
The disadvantage of Videobuster, however, is that the selection of video-on-demand titles is quite small. For this you only pay for what you see. In contrast to Netflix or Prime Video *, you are not tied to a subscription.
6. Can you also stream films on the TV with the Videobuster?
Clear! If you have an Apple TV, Android TV or Chromecast, you can also stream films and series via video bus * on the TV. With AirPlay, however, you can also transfer the picture from your Apple device to the television if you neither have an Apple TV nor a Chromecast.
