"Wings of Desire" flying East

Although Netflix has been doing this for at least two weeks, this is the first time it's happened to me. In my usual email from Netflix, telling me that my next movie has shipped, they had the courtesy to tell me that the title wasn't available at my local (Greensboro, NC) shipping center, so it is coming from San Jose, CA, and I can expect it in three business days.


  1. Hey! They actually listen to their users. I e-mailed them that suggestion a couple months ago.

  2. It's a tricky way to implement 'throttling' or 'choking' the Netflix customers.
