Random Factoid #260

14 04 2010

So many friends and fellow bloggers always talk about Netflix.  “I’ll add this to my Netflix queue,” someone will say.  “Forget theaters, I’m waiting for it to come out on Netflix,” others have said.

For some, Netflix has become synonymous with home video and renting.

I don’t have Netflix, and I really don’t know why.  I get e-mails all the time offering me free monthly subscriptions, but I have only taken one of them.  I didn’t end up using it during the free month.  I’m usually just so sporadic with renting movies that Netflix doesn’t provide wiggle-room for my spontaneity.

How do you get your movies now? Hollywood or Blockbuster?
Netflix just takes a little planning ahead and while the physical rental stores are still good for quick picks, I save so much money on late fees. Also, their selection is untouchable.

I think I’ll make this my factoid today. Thanks for the idea.

I agree with Scott, I’ve had Netflix less than a month and I can’t imagine my life without it. All of the local movie rental stores closed down in my area so the local public library, which I work at, Netflix and Redbox are my only ways of renting movies.
