Family Video offering 4,000 more movies free everydayPosted Friday, September 2, 2011, at 9:41 AM
In an unusual promotion, Family Video is testing a program to offer rentals of all the movies in its catalog - 4,000 of them - for free.
The program began Friday, Aug. 26 and an ending date for the promotion has not yet been established.
"We at Family Video are concerned about the effect the lingering recession, chronic unemployment and high gas prices are having on our customers and their families. We feel that some people have to forgo the enjoyment of movies and games for other, more essential items," company officials said in a news release.
The company already offered free rentals on 700 kids, fitness and educational movies.
