However, couple of years after its inception Netflix introduced a monthly subscription model of flat fee where users can go for unlimited DVD rentals without due dates, late fees, shipping or handling fees, or per title rental fees. The nature of subscription will determine simultaneous DVDs that a user can rent at a time. This model allows users to watch movies as per convenience without the pressure of returning movies till they are ready to watch the next one. For Netflix it means a continuous and steady rental and revenues and a great way to decrease idle shelftime for their movies.

Alexander Johnson English 100 March 29 2013 Professor Dellasanta Movie Cinema and Netflix Online There are different ways to experience a movie but two of them are almost alike, Netflix and Cinemas. The Movie Cinemas are too costly,and Netflix is an at home movie theatre experience that is cheaper. The Movie theaters cost per each movie while netflix you can pay one month of and get all the recent movies that just came out on dvd and television shows you might have missed. As the whole movie theatre experience goes you can basically get that at home with netflix but you just have to connect to a television or a projector. The reliability of a movie loading at home on a laptop or computer is faster and you do not have to wait for the previews to end.
In the past visiting a video rental store and spending time browsing the categories and titles was the norm and almost ritual for some households. The video rental industry was booming with thousands of customers from the home video days to the more recent DVD and Blu-Ray offerings. As time went on, movie rental companies would offer longer rental times as the price of rentals began to rise. This enticed many consumers being that busy schedules needed to be manipulated to return videos on time and avoid late fees. At the height of the movie rental industry revenues hit $11.6 billion (“Video Tape Rental” 2012).

I usually just use Netflix to watch movies. In fact I had no idea they offered television shows.

In four months I had completely watched the entire That '70s show and am now caught up with How I met Your Mother.
