Rent DVD And Blu-Ray Movies With Netflix App

Netflix has just released an iOS app for DVD.com clients that allows you to rent discs. The move seems a little bit odd considering that Netflix already allows you to stream content right to your device while pumping out original titles like Stranger Things and Orange is the New Black as well.

Netflix is on a roll with around 86 million members in more than 190 countries. In terms of hours, Netflix has been streaming 125 million hours of content for users every day. You might as well call it world domination.

In 1998, Netflix first kicked off an online service dedicated to DVD rental. For us living in 2017, renting movies seem like a thing of the past. The numbers prove it too. Netflix DVD subscribers have lessened in millions. In 2010, the number of subscribers was at 20 million. It saw a huge drop in 2014 with only 6.26 million subscribers. In 2015, we see it descending to 5.3 million.

However, the company still has 4.2 million of clients paying somewhere around $5 and $12 every month. It's not exactly a loss investment on their part. Netflix is pulling up around $132 million. Instead of abandoning the DVD rental industry, it has been clear that they are working on improving the rental experience by providing a streamlined service for DVD enthusiasts. Previously, these customers did not have the best accessibility when it comes to managing their queue.

The company's new DVD rentals app allows the user to browse a vast number of DVDs found in their catalog. From there, you can basically just add the chosen DVD to your queue or share them with the people you know.  Users can access their accounts and will receive notifications with their next disc shipping. 

I guess DVD rentals will be still hanging around us for a while or longer.If you are interested in the brand new Netflix app, you can download the one available for your iOS device. Just click the link right here.
