Louisville, Kentucky-Papa John's International Inc. plans to expand a test program under which the restaurant company has been selling no-return DVD movies. Under a deal with Los Angeles-based Flexplay Technologies Inc., Papa John's and convenience chain operator 7-Eleven Inc. have offered the "ez-D" movies in several markets since September.

Beginning in April and May, the test will be expanded to include restaurants and convenience stores in Phoenix, San Antonio, Denver and across Florida, according to a news release. The ez-D movies offer a no-return, no-late-fee alternative to rentals. Each recyclable disc is viewable for 48 hours after being removed from its package.
