Netflix is Paying Me to Stream!

April 16, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: NFLX

Interesting email from Netflix. I received the Wii disc for online streaming on Tuesday, but hadn't installed it yet. Netflix is now offering me a 10% break on next month's bill (ummm -- $1.70 I guess) just for installing it.

I didn't get a similar notice for last year's PS3 disc, though I think I may have installed that one right away.

Interesting strategy anyway, to get folks to initiate the streaming life and wean them off the optical stuff.

The e-mail contents:

Dear Rick,

Connecting your Wii console to your Netflix account is easy.

Insert your Netflix instant streaming disc in your Wii console and follow the instructions on your
TV screen.

Start watching TV episodes and movies!

We'll automatically apply your 10% discount to your next month.
