I decided to try a free trial of Netflix the summer of 2006. I was back home after freshman year of college. The days were long and I couldn’t get a job to save my life, so I got Netflix. The original plan was to use it just for the summer and then quit when I got back to college and studying….I’ve had the three-DVD-at-a-time plan, uninterrupted, since that summer. I witnessed them add streaming, back when you were limited to 18 hours streaming a month. I witnessed them piss everyone off by trying to separate the DVD service from the streaming (didn’t even cross my mind to cancel even though I thought it was a dumb business move). I witnessed them create their own shows. It’s been a roller coaster of a relationship, me and Netflix.
People wonder how many movies you’ve seen with a Netflix account for eight years. I’ve rated 1360 movies.
