So if you've read my other reviews, you know that I'm a big NETFLIX fan. Why?
1. NO LATE FEES. You pay a flat rate... if you forget to mail a disc back, you just wait a little longer for your next one.
2. FAST TURN AROUND. They just opened a distribution center in OKC. That means OVERNIGHT shipping to Tulsa!!! I mail something in Monday, they get it Tuesday, and my next disc is sitting at home Wednesday!
3. INCREDIBLE SELECITION: Netflix carries EVERY DVD that was ever commerically produced. Including TV series. I find that I rent very few movies (who has 2 hours?) But I rent a LOT of TV series... 24, Battlestar Galactica, ER, West Wing, Star Trek... it's easy to find 45 minutes to watch an episode, all commerical free.
4. LOW COST. In order to compete with Blockbuster, Netflix lowered it's subscription from $21.99 to $17.99. That gives you 3 movies out at a time. You can pretty much watch one every night, if you mail them back the next day, you'll get a replacement 2 days later!
OK, enough ranting about Netflix. But I like it so much, that I've given several gift subscriptions to people. EVERYONE who's tried it decided to turn it into a regular subscription!!!
