How did she do that?

I have the same movie title ("Forgotten Silver") in my queue twice, which should be impossible. Netflix usually warns me if I try to do that. I got around it this time, because I added the movie to my queue back when it was available. Then, it went "out of print". I added it again, without deleting the first one, and it ended up in my "awaiting release" section. Now that it has a release date, it's in my regular queue area.

    No, not in this case. It is something that Netflix has made technically impossible. It worked in this case, because Netflix assigned each release of the movie a different ID number in their database.

    Netflix is afraid Amazon will begin renting DVDs by mail, which would encroach on Netflix's business.
