Remember back in the day when Netflix just provided DVDs by mail? Well, with the rise of digital, that service has come to an end. On Tuesday, Netflix announced the discontinuation of its DVD-by-mail rental service. According to the streaming business, Netflix delivered 5 billion DVDs in America over the years, beginning in 1998. The company’s site dvd.com will officially shut down on Sept. 29, 2023, ending a major era of Netflix’s rise to stardom.
On September 29th, 2023, we will send out the last red envelope. It has been a true pleasure and honor to deliver movie nights to our wonderful members for 25 years. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey, including this final season of red envelopes. pic.twitter.com/9lAntaL2ww
