If you grew up in the 90s you probably remember what it’s like owning a VHS player and getting movies on VHS tapes. It was all the rage. Some actually bought movies, or you could rent them for a specific period of time and then you had to bring them back to return or exchange for a different movie.
There were even specific services that allowed you to order VHS tapes by mail and then you would watch them and mail them back. It was a whole thing. But then again, those were simpler, slower times. Waiting for a week was normal, you just couldn’t get instant access to movies. And what’s even funnier, you couldn’t just skip the intro like you can on Netflix. You could forward it but it was on you to then stop and press play at the right time.
