Peerflix is an online trading platform allowing users to sell their DVDs to other Peerflix members.

Description

Update

Why rent movies when you can own them for the same price? That's what DVD trading company Peerflix is asking us. Peerflix is a trading platform that lets you sell your DVDs to other Peerflix members instead of renting them from a large distributor. Users can keep the DVDs or sell them to others.

Peerflix has started a secondary business as and ad server for movie related sites. Ads will run across more than 40 partner sites, including Peerflix, TheMovieBlog, Pajiba.com, ComicBookMovie.com, BadMovies.org, ScreenRant.com, and AnimeMojo.com. All together, this collection of niche movie sites attracts about one million visitors a month as of November 2007.

Peerflix has acquired TheMovieBlog.com for an undisclosed amount.
