12 Surprising Facts About Netflix


Did you know that all Netflix employees are sworn to never reveal the locations of the DVD warehouses? How about the fact that Blockbuster actually turned down many offers to buy Netflix? The company could have had the streaming network for $50M. Now, Netflix is worth a whopping $20 billion. That's gotta hurt.

Check out the video above for all the unexpected facts.

Hi there,
We love seeing the episodes of shows that we've missed in the past, but we'd also like the oportunity to see some full run movies more often.
Otherwise, it's been great fun and a real bargain.

Thank you, dmamason@aol.com

Also Netflix has more Christian movies, such as PureFlix and others, and all with closed captions. Very nice.

Netflix is good about captions on movies. Why can't Huffpost put captions on so deaf and hard of hearing people can understand what's being said?

No, that would be VuDu. VuDu is owned by Wal-Mart.

Am I the only one that is getting really annoyed with these "stories" that turn out to be a dumb video with an ad of some type? If it keeps up I am not going to bother with anything on aol any. They're pretty much worthless.

I am so disappointed with AOL that I changed them as my homepage. I like to see what they have, but I only read the story if it REALLY peaks my interest. The stories are not well written, and anything to do with HUFFINGTON web page takes WAY TOO LONG TO LOAD and makes the Internet crash. So I scan the AOL news, then look for it somewhere else so I don't have problems with the web sites. Too bad because I have always liked AOL, just got too frustrated.

I guess I am not the only one who is disgusted with the length of time it takes for Huffington Post to load . At first I thought it was just on my computer, but I have been hearing that other people find Huffington loads slow. They should work on resolving this problem. I do the same as you when I see a story line that I find interesting on AOL....see if the story is on another website because I don't want to wait forever for Huffington Post.
