I have one friend that subscribes to Netflix and he confirmed that he’s probably being "throttled" as previously blogged about here. He also confirmed another reason to Notflix: when you sign up for a 1 DVD subscription or 2 or 3 DVD subscription–they really mean DVD, not title.
So that means if you want to rent all 12 DVDs in the three released seasons of Foyle’s War, you’ll get the DVDs one at a time. Not one season at a time. And the same thing with a season of any other TV show–one DVD at a time. And I’m assuming they probably won’t come in order. And if a movie has a separate DVD with extras–it won’t come with the movie.
I definitely will be Notflixing! A shame because in some other ways, it sounded really convenient.
