A Final Curtain Call: Netflix's DVD.com Lets You Keep the Discs

Recommended Posts

Netflix is bidding adieu to its original DVD subscription service, DVD.com, in a memorable way. The company announced that subscribers can keep any unreturned discs at no extra cost after the service comes to a close on September 29th. Adding to this generosity, Netflix is offering to send up to 10 extra random discs to users who access a special link on DVD.com by August 29th.

The End of an Era in Home Entertainment

This end-of-service giveaway not only marks the closure of DVD.com but also brings a ceremonious end to the very business model that launched Netflix. With the last set of DVDs shipping out on September 29th, it's clear that the era of mail-order DVD services has come to a close, giving way to digital streaming as the primary medium for home entertainment.

Hold Onto a Piece of Netflix History

I wasn't thinking about the Netflix History more than wondering what they would be doing with all those DVDs. I'm glad they are letting people keep them & giving them away instead of just scrapping.

Ya, seems to be a win for everyone involved.  Hopefully that means less will end up in the trash.  Granted, I do wish they would have been willing to sell the DVD side instead.
