Netflix could gain from loss of Sat. mail delivery
Netflix won’t miss Saturday mail delivery, even though the weekend service helped keep its DVD-by-mail subscribers happy.
The U.S. Postal Service’s planned shift to five days of home delivery a week instead of six may even make Netflix Inc. slightly more profitable by lowering the costs for sending out its familiar red envelopes with DVDs. That’s because subscribers may be able to watch fewer DVDs for the same monthly price.
