Blockbuster ExpressHow patient are you? Do you want to see one of this week's big releases on DVD? You can rent one for just $1.00 per night from thousands of kiosks across the country -- if you're willing to wait 28 days, that is.

If, on the other hand, you're in a hurry to see them and are willing to pay three time as much, Universal Pictures will soon be pleased to accommodate you.

Universal is preparing to test out a new pricing scheme that would make select titles available for rental at Blockbuster Express kiosks the same day they go on sale, according to the Los Angeles Times. The price might be as high as $3.00 for the first night and $2.00 for additional nights. (The price will drop back to $1.00 after 28 days.)

Operated by NCR Corp., more than 7,000 Blockbuster Express kiosks compete nationwide with more than 23,000 locations for Redbox and other smaller DVD kiosk operators.

Universal got into a legal fight with Redbox last year because they wanted a 45-day window before making new releases available for rental, eventually settling for the same 30-day window insisted upon by Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox.
