Netflix to go discless

Netflix’s CEO Reed Hastings has claimed that the company will be “primarily a streaming company that also offers DVD-by-mail.” Could this point towards US customers experience a streaming-only plan, which will cut out the need to deliver DVDs to your doorstep in the future? This is an interesting proposition, as it will surely cut down on the overall carbon footprint as well as costs, since there isn’t any more need to deliver discs to mailboxes. Sure, some folks might be out of a job because of this, but surely it is for the common good of everyone? Perhaps not so either, as when Netflix becomes a pure streaming company, they might just charge a premium service fee just like how those who want Blu-ray discs experience at the moment.
