This old article is interesting because of the surprising statistic regarding late fees:
"[Netflix] found that 11 percent of movie renters return movies unwatched because of the time restrictions and that 20 percent pay, on average, about $7.60 in late fees for every tardy DVD rental. "
That's rough. For one in five of us, we're paying $11.00 to rent a DVD for a week from Blockbuster. One in ten of us doesn't get to see the movie at all!
