Back in April 2023, Netflix announced that it would stop mailing DVDs out to customers later this year. On September 29, 2023, Netflix will mail out its final red envelope. For the last few years, Netflix DVD service has run under the DVD.com name as a Netflix company.
DVD.com plans start at $9.99 a month for one disc at a time, $14.99 for two discs at a time, or $19.99 for three discs at a time. You can get both DVDs and Blu-rays for that price.
DVD.com customers’ final bill will be in August, and they will continue to get access to the service until September 29th, 2023. At first, Netflix announced it would want its DVDs back, but now Netflix DVD customers will get to keep their final shipment of DVDs.
In the 1st quarter of 2023, Netflix’s DVD business generated just $145.7 million in revenue, down 20% from the same time in 2022. DVDs made up just 0.5% of Netflix’s revenue in the 1st quarter of 2023.
If you are not already a Netflix DVD customer, it is sadly too late to sign up for a final shipment of DVDs. The DVD.com website now only lets you log in if you are a current customer and says Membership sign-ups have closed.
Here is the email informing customers.
For 25 years, it’s been our extraordinary privilege to mail movie nights to our members all across America. On September 29th, 2023, we will ship our final iconic red envelope.
While times have changed since our first shipment in March 1998, our goal has remained the same: to provide you with access to the broadest collection of movies and shows possible, delivered directly to your door, with no due dates or late fees.
As the DVD business continues to shrink, it’s going to become increasingly difficult to achieve that goal. In our final season, we’ll continue providing you the best service possible, all the way to the very last shipment.
You may have some questions, and we’ve tried to answer them in our Final Season FAQ – and if you want to share something with us, you can send feedback here.
We sincerely thank you for joining us on this amazing journey. We could never have shipped more than 5 billion discs without movie lovers like you. It’s been a genuine privilege to share movie nights with you.
Pop the popcorn, fire up your player, and enjoy this final season of red envelopes.
