PBS host Mark Glaser explains why he recently left Netflix.
For the Netflix math to pay off for me, I would have to watch a certain number of movies each month. And after I watch each one, I would have to remember to drop it in the mail promptly to get a replacement movie. Even though it seems more convenient than getting a movie from the rental store, the Netflix process builds up its own frets and hassles. If I forget to watch my queue I might get a movie I already watched on pay-per-view, or a movie I thought I would like 6 months ago, but have lost interest in by now.
Thanks to Matthew for sending this in.
