DVDs will be staying at netflix.com

It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.

This means no change: one website, one account, one password… in other words, no Qwikster.

While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.

We’re constantly improving our streaming selection. We’ve recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we’ve added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.

We value our members, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get movies & TV shows.

Thank you.

Power, Deception and Lies (plus other good stuff)

Intrigue. Passion, Duplicity. The glorious backdrop of Renaissance Italy and the participation of some the best actors and writers working in television; get ready for Borgia: Faith and Fear. Elizabeth Bradley, Netflix Director of Content Acquisition here, and I’m pleased to let you know that starting today, for the first time in North America, Netflix viewers in the U.S. and Canada will be able to immerse themselves in a sumptuous recounting of the dramatic rise of the Borgia family and their dominance of the Vatican in the 15th and 16th century. Filled with backstabbing and adultery, triumph and devastation, Borgia: Faith and Fear is gripping and great fun.

Rediscovering The Wonder Years

Amid all the great shows and new seasons that launched on Netflix in the last couple of days, there was one I was so excited about that I felt compelled to share it with anyone who would listen.

I am Heather McCauley, senior counsel, content acquisition, at Netflix. I am happy to share that all six seasons of The Wonder Years are now available to watch instantly for the first time.

As much as I enjoyed the teenage angst of the Kevin and Winnie romance as it unfolded when I was in middle school and high school, I am loving it so much more today as I share it with my 7th grade daughter.

Hope you all enjoy discovering it and rediscovering it as well!
