Has anyone noticed the NFLX ad on the message pages? I can't recall them ever offering a free trial before. Already anticipating competition coming. One month free isn't much of a haircut from earnings, but it is a start to lower margins and decling revenue growth per subscriber.
god. This is the most ridiculous thread.
Investing needs to go back to brokers only. Individual investors are so stupid that all they're doing is creating opportunities for the pros. Go back to funds, please...
Sounds judgemental. Sharing this info - which translates to understanding nflx business operations - is valuable to some people. That's the beauty of a forum - people can help each other with DD. Brokers and fund managers lost folks a lot of money 2 years ago. Can you blame people for trying to figure things out?
If this type of info is not what you want from this forum, there are plenty of other threads...
Sorry fat fingers but I did mean my Sister in law. She has been a NFLX member for a long time, 5 years at least because that is how long she has lived out here near us. I am not sure if she was a subscriber before that point.
We got our free 1-month when we joined by getting a flier in the snail mail. That was ~2.5 years ago, maybe 3. It has been a while. It irked me to no end to be getting fliers in the mail even though I was a member (I also hate the popups). The snail mail fliers stopped quite a while ago.
I think their promotions are based on geography where they can get the most bang for their buck. If you live out in the sticks then mailing is going to take longer to get discs to the end subscriber so they probably don't spend a lot of those folks. Me, I must be on top of the distribution center because I can drop a CD in the mail at work and at 6:00 am the next morning I get notification they received the disc. The day after that have my next disc.
Hi pandora--I checked on the NFLX promos and did not find any free promos. But, doesn't mean it hasn't happened. I notice though that the poster referred to his SIL and talked about "he" instead of "her". Seems to me that SIL would sister-in-law. Minor point but maybe that poster was full of BS. NFLX down from here.
I thought the free month was a given, as it's been around for a while. I signed up that way a long time ago. Same for BB. I signed up for both at the same time to see who could turn over discs the fastest. NFLX won and I canceled BB after 30 days.
