Some sad news hit my mailbox a few days ago from Netflix. Apparently they decided to discontinue their “Previously Viewed DVDs” program, for rather foggy reasons. Too bad cause it’s a great way to get super recent DVDs at prices as low as $5.99 — and I must say I got quite a few movies this way.
Never had a problem with a previously viewed dvd received, most of them in pristine condition, with no scratch or sign of use at all. If you don’t know what this Netflix program is, here’s a nice rundown of how it works. And unfortunately it’s going to end November 30.
Looks like I’m not the only one unhappy about this decision, at least looking over at the comments on the netflix blog post announcing the discontinuation of the program. Still hoping they’ll change their mind about this.
