The current streaming menu doesn't show me the more obscure films I might like to watch so I've started searching a different way. I put a letter in the search till actors/directors names are recommended. when you click on a name, it shows all the movies/shows they are in. Most of the movies that get listed have never been offered to me in the main menu. I scroll through the names and find all kinds of stuff I would never have seen otherwise.

Pretty sure Netflix was a household name long before they started doing any internet streaming video at all. After all, they put Blockbuster out of business before they started doing video streaming, which means they had many millions of customers back then.

The disc-in-the-mail business model is interesting... People PAY Netflix to do the job of cleaning all their grimy DVDs for them.
