~One Year with Netflix

A little while back we passed our one-year mark having a membership with Netflix. wc indicates that so far we've rented 114 movies (some of them for friends).

We've always liked to watch movies at home, rarely in a theater. Netflix matches our needs quite well. We enjoy foreign, classic, documentary and b flims along with a regular dose of Hollywood formula films. The two reasons we will continue to use Netflix:

1) Much better selection of movies. We most often know what we want to see, and more often than not can't find it at the video store
2) No wait in line (provided you could find the movie on the shelf). Seems like when we're in the mood for a movie, so is everyone else. The lines at our local rental place are regularly stacked 20 or 30 people deep.

With a warehouse in Worchester, MA, our movie turnaround is 2 or 3 days. Many times the return movie gets to the warehouse and a new one is on it's way the day we drop it in the box.

A happy Netflix customer.
