Intriguing insightful compehensive history of netflix at the beginning to now.
26 May 2020 | by lbruhncaSee all my reviews

I remember how cool it was to pick and put in your queue movies on the Netflix site. With anticipation I'd wait for the mail to get the DVDs and Loved that I could keep them however long I wanted and return them when I was ready for more DVDs. I got so mad at Blockbuster because of late fees, but how I remember going there to look at the wall of DVDs (and VHS tapes before that!) to pick the movie to watch. Things have changed so much and its intriguing how Netflix has stayed ahead of the curve of the changing digital distribution landscape and delivers what audiences want in both platform delivery and content. Well done documentary, hat's off to these filmmakers. A recommended watch for everyone.
