No USPS Saturday mail delivery? No problem for Netflix customers

Netflix customers nervous about end of Saturday mail delivery

If you wound back the clock five years and the United States Post Office (USPS) was lobbying to end Saturday mail delivery, you'd probably see small business owners and a few others upset about the change. But now that over 10 million subscribers count on Netflix to deliver an astonishing 1.9 million DVDs a day, those customers are concerned about losing their Saturday night entertainment.

In case you missed it, the USPS has formally asked its regulatory body to weigh in on its proposed cost-cutting measure of moving to a five-days-a-week mail delivery schedule, a transition which the Postal Service would like to see happen in the 2011 fiscal year. While the change is still a ways off and needs congressional approval, many consumers are wondering what this means for Netflix and other mail delivery entertainment services like GameFly.
