Yes I know Netflix is down

Thank you all for the mail.

Just a note to explain the lack of posts.

After returning from vacation, we had a death in the family. This family member happen to leave a large stock portfolio to me and my brother. In this portfolio is a large block of Netflix shares. I do not feel comfortable blogging Netflix while I own stock in the company. The portfolio should be out of Escrow and liquidated by mid May. I hope to return to Netflixholic when I do not have a conflict of interest.

New Envelope in the works?

Ok with all the talk about the USPS forcing Netflix to redesign the Red Envelope, a new design is probably in the works. For us collectors, it is time to start watching our envelopes for small changes that may be test runs. Let the search for variations begin.

NBC shows to Netflix day after they air

Looks like NBC is going to make some shows available on Netflix watch instantly:

Now, the broadcaster is partnering with mail-order DVD rental company Netflix, announcing deal which will make selected NBC shows available online to Netflix subscribers the day after the air on the broadcast network.

Shows available under the deal will include NBC's seeming-ubiquitous Heroes—already syndicated into the ground on NBC partner networks, via G4 and Mojo—along with earlier seasons of 30 Rock, The Office, and Friday Night Lights.

Tis the season for Netflix delays

Ahh tis the season, and the USPS is soon to be slammed with holiday well wishers and all the accompanying mail. I live about 100 miles from a Netflix distribution center and I usually get a 3 day turn around. One day there, one day processing, one day back. I've been a Netflix subscriber for about 4 years now and each year around this time the transit time gets a little longer. Last year my Holiday turn around ran from 4-5 days, now this is not Netflix fault, it all falls on the shoulders of the Post Office...but I guess it is to be expected. How is your turn around this time of year?
