"Inside Netflix" on Nightline & the "Hacking Netflix" Blog
Those of you who know me know that more than anything else, I am a serious movie buff. And, I love Netflix. One night, I decided to do some research on Netflix and found two very interesting things online about them. First, I found the "Hacking Netflix" blog. Then, I found within that blog a wonderful piece from the archives of ABC's "Nightline" called "Inside Netflix" which actually aired back in 2009.
This was the first time I'd seen it, and for those of you who haven't, the segment is quite fascinating. I mean how many of you have wondered what it looks like inside one of the over 50 different distribution centers where Netflix DVD envelopes are ripped apart, examined and re-sorted? It makes for very interesting viewing, in which many previously unknown statistics are exposed.
