Netflix’s DVD Subscription Is Still Great, Dammit

Andrew Karcher:

The solution: Netflix DVDs. In the eight years I’ve had the service I’ve never had an issue obtaining a copy of a movie or TV series I want.

I finally killed my Netflix DVD subscription in 20151. I’ve been missing it. The problem with streaming services for me is that I often end up spending an hour watching trailers and never actually watching an actual movie.

Being forced to make a decision on what to watch is what I liked about Netflix DVDs (and Blockbuster).

What if I canceled my streaming services and watched rented DVDs only? That would make it hard to just lose a weekend binge watching stuff. I also couldn’t spin my wheels watching trailers agonizing over which movie to choose.

Now Karcher has me thinking about getting DVDs in the mail again.
