I brought up the topic of USPS Network Rationalization some time back .. to expect NF to somehow compensate, reward the subscriber by cutting rates or offer some sort of pie in the sky "help a brother out" plan is one of the most ludicrous ideas I've seen on AVS ..
Like I said earlier, maybe Hastings should consider a Drone Fleet .. oh, wait, that's out too based on the FAA .. how about a Private Delivery Service that frizzbees the disk onto your front porch .. ??
Bottom line, NF will continue to transition to a streaming only model, which was Hastings original plan to begin with .. other niche companies like 3Dbluray will help fill in the gap, but within a short number of years, physical media will lose .. the writing has been on the wall for a long time ..
And, in an odd way, USPS Network Rationalization plays into that scenario .. although the two, I don't think, are connected via conspiracy, the USPS slowdown does play into NF long term plan ..
Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
