They'll slow down shipping movies out to people who watch too many a week/month.
How many movies are you going through a week/month and what's your plan? I have 1 disc at a time and I'll do 1 or 2 movies a week, but often also keep one movie for 2 or 3 weeks if I guess busy, go out of town etc. So I've never hard throttling issues.
If you're not going through movies very fast, it could be some problem with your mailman or something else along the way.
The only issue I have now is a lot of new release blu rays sit on Very Long Wait for 2 or 3 weeks after release and get skipped over for other things in my queue. But I can live with that as I don't mind waiting (if I wanted to see it that bad, I would have caught it at the theater).
I have the 1 disc plan. I average 2 discs per week (when things flow right). Streaming, I am not heavy streaming..but I am starting to get into BSG...even yesterday the connection crapped out saying my internet connection was too slow..(WTF Verizon!)
Yes, and they paid a settlement and altered the user agreement to notify that they do it which protects them from future suits.
They don't seem to do it nearly as much though, based on how much lessend complaining about it has gotten on movie forums.
So it's more likely he's having a postal issue. I had problems when I moved the last time with things not showing up or getting returned. Left a note for the mailman after a few had gotten returned to Netflix as undeliverable and haven't had any issues since. Think that may have been a change of address problem.
I am really starting to suspect our mail man/Post Office. I've notice that some of my bill payments sent by check either get there days later then expected OR never arrive. Just the other day my gf got her W2 form in the mail and it was a clear sign someone tried to open it and retaped it...we were like WTF?!?!!? Heck even a package that was suppose to take 2 days from FL from my friend took 6 days to get here!
