Netflix is a subscription service that lets you rent DVDs for as long as you want (as long as you maintain an active subscription).
It’s a convenience: you can have three DVDs out at a time, watch them when you want, and return them. Once you return them the next set of movies is sent to you via mail.
The Netflix business model is really one step in a direction away from physical distribution: the future is in online digital distribution where you’ll be able to download movies on demand and watch them as long as you want.
Everyone has a different experience and different opinion about Netflix. Chris’s experience has generally been very good. Do you use Netflix or a similar service? What has been your experience with them?
