News: USPS Sticks it to Netflix

Dec 10, 2007

Apparently the US Postal Service is not too pleased with Netflix. After an audit, the USPS determined that 70% of those bright red envelopes jam, damage, or just causing general havoc on their sorting equipment.

This translates into a 17% surcharge added for all Netflix mailers. What does that mean for us? A price hike for our monthly fees is likely in the future, but we hope Wired's prediction of a mailer re-design to combat the added fees comes true.

Thanks for your photo, Mr. Guybrarian.
