Old-school

Back in the day, whenever you wanted to watch a movie, you could order a DVD online, go to the Netflix website, and in a couple of days, you could watch a video. It took much longer to get a film; then, it usually does today. So then why do people still get DVDs from Netflix? Because the movie selection is way more vast. Netflix ( in 2019) had 6,000 films and shows to stream, but nearly 100,000 options on DVD.

Cost

Netflix has multiple plans if you want usual Netflix for only one screen, and in SD, it costs 8.99 a month. If you’re going to watch on two screens at a time and have it in HD, then you would buy the standard plan; it is 12.99 a month. If you are fancy, then you could get the premium plan for 15.99 a month.

A standard DVD plan costs $7.99 per month, and if you prefer Blu-ray, the cost is $9.99 per month.  Whichever you choose, Netflix sends you one at a time for however long you want. Whenever you send the disc back, they send you the next drive in your queue. You can get as many CDS as you like over time. The only thing stopping you is how quickly you can watch and return the DVDs. If you want to have more then one DVD at the time, the Premier DVD plan allows you to keep two discs at a time for $11.99 per month or $14.99 per month for Blu-rays if you want to know where my prices came from click here.
