Do you do it in a single setting. If so, you are as sick as our oldest son.

Personally I'm addicted to the British versions of Tinker Tailer ... and Smily's People along with the extended version of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. Oops, I can't leave out Bourne Identity.

Is anyone else seeing Netflix suddenly taking 2 days to process returns? All off a sudden they are waiting an extra day to ship a disc after receiving a return.
So they check in a disc today but don't ship one till tomorrow. WTF?

I've had this happen on and off for the last 18 months or so. I'd speculate that it depends on if it gets scanned properly or has to be sorted by hand.

I checked with them on that a while back and was told it's a matter of USPS scanning and the USPS changes regarding Media Mail .. etc .. while I have not researched the current status of distribution centers, I'd guess they may be shrinking in nunber .. add that along with this ::

It works the same way that reducing their work week from six to five working days. As they reduce turn around volume it becomes easier and easier to get out of the disk rental business. Their future customers will do all their streaming to cell phones. At the same time I expect that they are also reducing inventory along with offering "special rental" versions.

I've reduced my subscription from three movies at a time to two movies at a time, and now one movie at a time. Netflix is overnight from where I live. Last week I returned a movie on Friday which meant it was processed on Monday and then it shipped on Wednesday. I received it on Thursday and returned it today.

The one disk a week cycle is the new Netflix.

Update:

"Netflix's shrinking DVD service faces uncertain future"

Netflix got so much heat on their stock price when they tried to replace disk rental with streaming that they backed off. Then they started to gradually kill their disc rental business one small step at a time. Netflix has almost competed the job. Ear buds and phone screens are the future of "home theater" on the go.

It should come as no surprise .. Hastings has stated from the get go that streaming was the ultimate goal ..

As a stockholder back in those days, the separation of the disk by mail and streaming into two separate entities, with a fairly large price hike, caused the stock drop .. they lost around 800,000 subscribers at the time .. then there was the proposed name "Qwickster" .. with the split into two separate Websites ..

As each new Generation comes up the line, streaming will become more and more the norm, with disks relegated to the Oldsters (like me) .. I don't agree with it, but tech always marches on .. as well, NF continues to position itself along the lines of a Premium Cable channel with much more immediate selection .. continuing to expand it's original content ..

Tell me about it. I've been using Netflix since Christmas 1999.

... it could mean paying for each view within several levels of image quality.

I haven't seen too much of a delay the past month or so. My Netflix return site is also the main USPS distribution for my area, so there is little delay. The email notifications are also getting better and on-time, although mostly on shipped disc notifications. I don't get many received ones. I am on the two-out plan.

I think it's mostly a matter of convenience .. young folks want it now, they are adverse to waiting, or going to an actual Video Store (the few that are left) .. quality takes a back seat .. the Market is what determines what ends up or down .. no different than the Music business ..

I could see NF going to a tiered pricing arrangement .. and, I've said for years that if VUDU and the rest of the streamers could get a HD feed out at $1.50 or less per view on a new release, the disk market would die a hell of a lot faster than it's already dying ..

Nearly 10x the number of subscribers to streaming vs disk with about 5% of the library...and still not making a profit, it's "early days" for sure with this model but it appears a lot of people are hooked. Server costs are pretty low and will continue to drop. Bandwidth costs on the other hand might be dropping but there's still a lot of infrastructure that's just not there now. Verizons purchase of XO (an internet backbone provider) and their push into 5G wireless places them in a good position to provide the needed bandwidth from the data ocean to the user...but not for another 3-5 years depending on where you live. Between now and then I don't see my disk viewing changing unless my residence and lifestyle change dramatically (which is unlikely). I'm not against streaming, I just want the library and the quality and that doesn't exist now.

I think there might be some niche opportunities out there for old movies on DVD. Will Netflix cover that niche or will it be someone else? I've relied on Netflix for disks I like to re-watch maybe once every 3 years or so. Will I have to purchase those titles now? The price is certainly becoming less to purchase BDs but I'd rather not store them. Will older titles be available to stream or download in high quality? I see a lot of gaps right now that keep me from switching to disk-less. The music industry has good options now though but it took way to long to get there. I hope the video industry gets there sooner.

I have gone to the 2 disk plan. There just aren't as many disks to watch. I've purchased some TV titles on BD to watch because they were only offered on SD DVD from Netflix, the purchase price was about the same as a rental from 3d-blurayrental.com for the series (BDs are getting cheep). Netflix is not the reliable source it once was for BD rentals. I just don't want to store disks, particularly for shows I won't be re-watching.

Unfortunately I'm experiencing a little bit of a rocky transition, I'm not all that pleased with my options. I think I'll need to purchase more BDs then sell them right away, I just need to get my new methodology for viewing disks figured out.

Cheers,

Over the years, I would just get Netflix for a month or two, once or twice a year to watch about 12 movies are so. I would watch and mail back the next day. I almost always would get another movie 2 mailing days later (2 mailing days between each movie.) So I would always get a movie 2 days a week on the same days pretty much (so every Monday and Thursday, for example, I would get a movie.)

Early this year, I got a subscription again, and for first time, it was taking much longer. I think it came out to about 1 day less than a week to get another movie (get one on a Tuesday, mail back on Wednesday, get the next one on Monday.) I just got a subscription again, and just mailed back three movies (got the 3 movie plan), for three straight days starting last Thursday, and my que, on Sunday, shows no sign of receiving any of them, so I might not even get that extra day per week, as I did a few months ago.

Netflix does not seem worth it. I guess I will stick to Redbox. I like it better and at this new rate, it might even be cheaper with its special etc. Its problem is that not everything is in blu-ray, Mostly only new releases and/or blockbuster titles are. I actually got Netflix this go around because I wanted to see Desierto which Redbox did not have, even in DVD. By the way, it seems strange that DVDs would be popular for rentals. Anyone using them would not value good quality, therefore streaming would definitely make more sense for them. I guess Redbox's $1.50 DVD rate is cheaper than streaming rentals.

People who would sit around on a movie for days before watching/returning probably do not even notice the new Netflix imposed lag and those customers who make Netflix money. People sending back movies the next day, might have been costing Netflix more money than the subscription fee under the old system. In which case, Netflix probably does not care if we do not like it.

I haven't noticed any undue lags with a few exceptions:


I found it is best to stick with the official Blue Collection Boxes for returning the discs. When I have used the little outgoing slot for our condo's community mailboxes, sometimes the outgoing mail gets delayed by a week. (Maybe the substitute driver doesn't make it back to the USPS Regional Sorting Center until the next time that carrier is used.)


When I have a non-local disc, I'll usually double it with a local disc in a local envelope, and just toss the non-local envelope. When the Netflix Processing Plant prepares outgoing discs they seem to go by USPS scanned bar codes and they seem unaware of the second disc. Once the discs are mailed off, they then open the incoming envelopes and then discover the second disc, which, depending on the timing, could mean an open at-home slot that then doesn't get filled until the next business day.


And of course when I miss the cut-off time for a Blue Collection Box, the whole process can be delayed by a business day.


Other than that, I am getting discs just as fast from Tacoma, WA, as I did when Netflix had a plant here in Salem, OR (where I live). (When the USPS did away with the USP Sorting Center in Salem, the Netflix processing plant moved shortly after that.)


However, since I live in the zone of Totality, on Eclipse Day August 21, and on a few days before and after, I wouldn't be at all surprised if mail delays suddenly spike.

My very humble setup:

Maybe it is my post office. Yesterday (Monday), I returned some movies at a different post office's blue-box. Netflix acknowledged the delivery today (Tuesday) and I will get new movies tomorrow (Wednesday.)

I put two discs in my mailbox for Monday pickup. Today (Tuesday) I got notice that two discs were being sent, which I expect to get Wednesday.

No problem here

I haven't experienced any delay with NF turn around. I always go to the post office to mail my discs. NF always receives them the next day, they mail new discs the same day and I receive them the next day. NP.

Just took my BluRay sub from three out to two out. Lately they are passing me over for new releases and short waits more than ever before. Today they passed over several new releases and about a dozen other previously released discs and sent me three things that were down between 20-30 in my queue. So far down that I don't rank order these. In fact they were all DVD titles, not BluRay.

Waits seem to have increased with 3D-BluRayRental as well... I've had trouble on my last couple of orders there, with things being on wait. Sigh. Probably more of us using that service instead of NF.

No waits on new releases for me as long as the movie is returned by Monday. Occasionally I will get a new title even if I don't return a disc until mid week.

It got bad in Indianapolis area when they closed our local disc center. We are serviced out of Cincinnati mostly... Two days each way, though Saturday returns are received Monday and theoretically new releases shipped. One cycle per week. Yuk.

I haven't had issues with turn around but I was seeing issues with an increasing number of discs showing as "short wait" at the top of my queue which seemed to be taking much longer than expected. I decided to cancel my subscription in June for the rest of the summer because of the increasing list of discs not being shipped and because there is no option to suspend ... and because it was getting too hot in the home theater to watch! Just to note that Arrival at number one in my queue was shown as short wait for 3+ months so I don't know what was going on there. Before cancelling I did check with Netflix and was told the following:
  • Short wait = 1-2 weeks
  • Long wait = 1 month
  • Very long wait = Much longer!
Apparently Netflix will keep your queue(s) on their servers for 10 months after you cancel before deleting. I was told that signing in specifically through DVD.Netflix.com when reactivating will get the queues back again. Time will tell if this works but I made copies of my three queues of "stuff I may watch one day" just in case the best laid plans don't deliver.

I've had "Fences" at the top for awhile now, but it's also showing as "Short Wait" and is being skipped over for the past few weeks, too.

That makes no sense. You're delaying the check in for that disc.

They aren't going to send the disc back to the non-local center. That's why the envelope says "Nearest Netflix Facility" on it. They'll send it to the one nearest you and it will be checked in before Netflix even opens the envelope.

That's why you end up with an open slot with a shipping delay. They can't check in the disc if the reader can't see the bar code through the little window.

I sure hope that physical media don't disappear. I live in a rural area, where the best (non-satellite) internet service I can get is 3Mbps DSL. Usually I can stream a Netflix movie at SD quality, sometimes even in 720P, but not usually. Yes, satellite internet is faster, but high cost, high latency (for non-streaming internet use), and, especially, data caps keep me away from it.
