Well, over the last few months, I have heard rumors that people have been using Netflix as a “burn & return” service. Need to get the Sopranos box set but can’t spare the 80 bucks? Burn & return. Sounds tempting, I guess.
Now, I have no doubt that this is probably illegal; that being said, I can see how you could expand a DVD collection went from fairly robust to friggin’ awesome.
So, if you are one of the lucky ones that got a DVD burner (or even a DVD player) for Christmas, please allow me to introduce you to the greatness of Netflix.
PS – Don’t do anything illegal. I’m not suggesting you do anything illegal. I am not responsible for any actions you may take because you read this. In fact, I’m probably going to delete it. 😉
PSS – As a final caveat, if you try Netflix and decide you like it, I get a few dollars. I just thought I should get that out in the open. If you would rather try Netflix and have them avoid paying me, well then you could always just try Wal-Mart’s service or something else instead. 🙁
