Netflix Really, Really Doesn’t Want Your DVD Money

Since I am a streaming-only Netflix subscriber, I never really noticed this. Honestly, it is astounding how many times a company can shoot itself in the same foot, isn\'t it?

New subscribers are a different story, though. Netflix exclusively pushes its $8-a-month unlimited-streaming option, on its site and in its promotional materials. You have to work very hard to discover that the company still rents DVDs, and that’s by design.
