I guess I'll try hooking up the wife when the Netflix DVD runs out.

Great strategy while it lasts. But as Travolta said in Broken Arrow, "The modern battlefield is a highly fluid environment." Things change, and the successful DVD aficionado changes with them. Time to start buying like a m***********.  Netflix is gonna be flooding the market with really cheap used discs, which should soften the market generally. And you'll want to get those while you can, cos if bulk buyers like Netflix are out, the whole market will be winding down soon. Get these discs while you can. And build your Culture Bunker.
I assume you've got a VPN account? OK, there must be some way in if the government really wants to get you, but I like slamming the door on the really aggressive retailers. And for a little extra, I can get my IP assigned to Japan.
Say what???

Don't forget there will always be a way to record a screen (via HDMI for instance).

Yeah, but there's got to be something worth recording on the screen to begin with. The best way to ensure that is to own physical media.

Worthless without good content. These chains can't make it on summer blockbusters alone.

Checking through some old emails, I got this one September 29,

In 1998, we shipped our first DVD. This morning, we shipped our last. For 25 years, members like you have shared the joy of seeing a new movie in your mailbox. Thank you for being part of a generation of movie lovers who welcomed our red envelopes into your homes.
Your DVD subscription is now closed. There's nothing more you need to do to close out your DVD membership.
We will not be charging for any unreturned discs?please enjoy any discs you have at home for as long as you like!
Your queue, rental history, ratings, and reviews will be available to download until October 27th 2023, so be sure to get your DVD Netflix history here. We hope you enjoy this keepsake of our time together.
Thank you for loving our iconic red envelopes, sharing movie nights with us, and being part of our final season.
Sincerely,

The DVD Netflix Team

I just looked through my queue. I still have 35 movies remaining I need to see  ;D

Looking through my history now, I barely used it in the last few years. I made just 3 disc exchanges in 2023, two in 2022, 14 in 2021, and 10 in 2020. Thanks to TCM and DVR I didn't have much time to watch these Netflix discs. But I rented a lot more in earlier years ? e.g., 120 discs in 2013 and 130 in 2012.

In all I rented 538 discs from Netflix, starting with The Quiet Man in 2011 and ending with Broken Blossoms last month (which I have not yet watched).

I am surprised that the disc rental lasted as long as it did ...

Best Buy will cease DVD sales after the end of the year: https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2023/10/13/best-buy-no-longer-sell-dvds-after-holiday-season/71173846007/

No more steelbook exclusives, I guess. Oh well, there are other retailers. But the trend is clear: get the movies the way that you want them now, because once physical media is gone, films via streaming will be revised and altered at will. Or made unavailable.
