|a friend has been using this dvd delivery service called netflix and really likes it. no late fees ! the envelopes show up in a day or two w/ a prepaid return mailer envelope included
I was given a subscription recently, just placed my first order, seems like a great idea. I think Dave wrote about it once, maybe at dratfink. I haven't really read all the fine print but it seems like they want me (they've emailed me voicing concern? that I only have three movies in my queue, order more they say) to use the hell out it. So for 20 bucks a month it's unlimited how many you can order? as long as they receive the returns in the mail. So, another Rocheblave amenity (a fridge with beer in it is really the only other one), great for those dog days of summer.
yeah, ive written about it before. i think big jimmy might have an account, or he did at some point. i read somewhere that if you rent more than 5 movies a month that they actually lose money. doesnt seem like a good business plan that theyd want their customers NOT to use their service but what do i know.
Funny, MB and I were just discussing Netflix this morning. We're going to try.
More than I knew, thanks.
sorry, three movies at a time.
I'vw been using Netfilx since Feb. I like it as there are no good video stores nearby. Their list is not great but beats the hell out of bl0ckbust3r and they're convenient. Currently I've got La Notte and A Girl In Black out, have had them for the past 3.5 weeks, I've been too busy to watch and I don't think there's a way to stop the que.
It seems to take about 5 days from the time you return one to the time you receive it's replacement, but since the tendancy is to return them as you view them there is a pretty steady feed. I don't think it as great a savings as it seems unless you're prone to running up latefees.
