Aron tipped me off to a story where Postmaster General John E. Potter featured Netflix in a recent presentation:
Potter highlighted examples of companies using the mail successfully, including:
· Netflix, which relies on First-Class mail to serve more than 3 million subscribers who will bring Netflix $660 million in revenue this year.
Aron noted that "About .3% of USPS's revenue (~ 200M$ of 69B$) now comes from Netflix. With 700K employees at the USPS, Netflix is effectively paying for 2,100 of their salaries."
With the exception of the rare movie theft, the USPS has done an amazing job shipping more than 1 million movies a day to Netflix customers (more info on the Netflix Fan blog).
