DVDPlay is the creator, manufacturer and franchisor of the worlds first Automated Entertainment Machines (AEMs) These patent pending AEMs are an effortless new way to rent and sell the latest hit DVD movies and games. All AEMs are Internet connected, screen navigable, cashless and require minimum personnel. And when consumers return their DVDs the movies are automatically accepted into the machine inventory pool to be rented again and again. Franchisees can remotely manage all of their machines from their home, their office, or even from a beach in Hawaii. Daily reports keep owner/operators informed 24/7 on all rentals, sales and other revenue streams, including advertising and email promotions. Think of DVDPlay franchise as a Blockbuster in an ATM-sized box, conveniently located throughout your community, instead of the single giant video store located across town or miles away! Our business model is to make AEMs as ubiquitous and convenient to consumers as ATMs are today.
