I haven't bothered getting a dvd from them in months -- with all the streaming movies and tv shows they offer, who needs dvds?
Contrary to the misconceptions of many people on this board (particularly of the US variety), not everyone in the US has access to broadband Internet, and not everyone who *could* access the Internet via broadband chooses to do so. The last stats I read (about 2 years ago) still put dial-up as the leading means of connecting to the Internet for Americans.
Less than two years ago 40% of Americans didn't have cable TV never mind internet. Most people don't have blu-ray either (Why do you buy DVDs?!?!), or an HD TV or anything of the kind. People online don't seem to see how lucky they are to have what they have.

I have cable internet but it it not hooked up to a TV so I don't really watch anything from Netflix online.
