Netflix was one of the first online DVD rental stores to eliminate the late fees. This doesn’t mean you can keep the DVDs for years. However, if you can’t return the DVD’s for some justified reasons, Netflix will not penalize you.
Along with the DVD, you will also get a postal free of charge envelope to send the movie back. This way, besides the monthly DVD rental fee, you won’t need to pay anything else.
Netflix has several available packages. The cheapest one allows you to rent one movie at a time once every two weeks, while the most expensive one allows you to book eight DVDs at a time.
The smallest package that costs 4.99 dollars a month is not such a great option, as you will be limited at two movie rentals a month. All the other packages are unlimited, so you can rent eight DVDs at a time, and whenever you need, you can give them back and request other eight. However, before signing up for real money, you could try their trial program allowing you to benefit from the Netflix services free for one month.
The engine of Netflix is simple. If you like a movie, you can add it to the Queue. The movies will be sent to your home in the order from the Queue, but you can change the order whenever you like. The movies are sent considering your package and personal preferences.
Once you send a package back, the next package will be delivered automatically. This is why Netflix allows late returns: you won’t be able to request another set of movies until you deliver the old set back, and this is how Netflix makes sure you are always sending the DVDs back.
Netflix introduced other services also in the latest years. For example, you could watch the movies online if you don’t want to wait until they are delivered. The number of free movies is also limited considering your package. You will find the Instant Play section with all the available movies from this program.
