Netflix fun facts

  • Netflix members say they rent twice as many movies per month than they did prior to joining the service.
  • If Netflix members, instead of receiving movies by mail, drove two miles each way to a rental store, they would consume 800,000 gallons of gasoline per day and release 8,800 tons of carbon dioxide emissions daily or more than 2.2 million tons annually.
  • Netflix ships about 17,000 tons of DVDs each year. If placed side by side, the discs would form a line about 30,000 miles long.
  • If you stacked every DVD we ship in a single pile, the stack would grow by 4,500 feet each day and would be taller than Mt. Everest within a week.
  • New Netflix members say they are immediately more satisfied with their home-entertainment experience than they were prior to joining Netflix. Their high level of satisfaction tends to increase the longer they remain with Netflix.
