This would have an impact on Netflix's dvd-by-mail business.

They used to say this about mail delivery: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."


But it looks like the U.S. Postal Service wants to add "except on Saturdays" to that old saying.


On Monday the USPS will share its survival plan. Word is officials plan to ask Congress for permission to shorten its work week and to change its retiree health benefits.

noticed that Amazon Prime is now offering Saturday delivery at no extra charge for 2 day delivery: so if you order on Thursday it will be delivered (by UPS or Fedex) on Sat for free as Prime member


seems the other services are ready to fill the gap

I would bet that Netflix has tried to negotiate a deal with UPS and FedEx. Considering that shipping eats up 1/3 of their revenue, it would be crazy for them not to try and cut those costs.

Since NF can't stream Paranormal Activity, it will get here on monday instead of saturday. Big whoop!

Oh no, very long wait on this one from NF. No stream-no dvd-no good NF.


Oh wait, redbox has it for $1 but only on dvd, no BD.
