I do not have to admit any such thing. I got three DVDs and we watched
them over a period of 24 hours. We're retired and live alone so we can
do what we want with our time. Then I put them in the mailbox for the
postal carrier to pick them up. In principle I got 3 discs twice a
week, 3 on Wednesday and 3 on Saturday. That would have worked out to
27 on the basis of a 30 day month. But they shorted me a couple along
the way so the best I could do was 25 for that period.
If you're looking for 20-25 rentals for your $20, yea, you probably will get
angry with Netflix.
You do not know what you are talking about.
But if you get your three movies, watch them over (say)
five to seven days, send them back, etc, you'll never have a problem with
I do not need any five to seven days to watch 3 movies. We watch one
in the afternoon as soon as the discs arrive. Then we watch a second
later that night. Then we watch the third the next morning. That gives
us ample time to get the discs in the mailbox for pickup.
But if you want a movie a day, yea, you'll get slowed down (and,
rightfully so, in my opinion)
Your opinion is irrelevant. I watch movies the way I want to, not the
way you tell me I have to.
And I do not get slowed down appreciably. My complaint is that I am
put on the blacklist for new releases. But no big deal - after a solid
month of movies we need a break so I unsubscribe for a month or two.
Then when I resubscribe the previously backlogged movies in my queue
are miraculously now available.
Stop Repeat Offenders!
Don't Re-elect Them!
