More Nexflix Tips

8 09 2009

I’ve previously given some tips for Netflix users.  And I’ve learned a few more that I’d like to share.

Getting New Releases
New DVD releases are available on Tuesday.  However, since Netflix mails new releases on Monday, it is important to:

  1. Mail back a DVD so that Netflix receives it on Monday.
  2. For a series DVD, put disc 1 on the top of your queue and put the rest on the bottom of your queue, with miscellaneous DVDs in the middle.
  3. If you do NOT get disc 1 of a new release DVD series, then reorder your DVDs in reverse order – if you don’t mind watching them out of sequence.

Queue Tips
Netflix seems to handle all DVDs of a series like one DVD title.  I’ve noticed this when I put, say 5 DVDs of a series on my queue and there is a wait on DVD #1, Netflix will not send me DVD #2-5 – it will wait till it sends me #1 first.

These are the ramifications:

  1. Consider all DVDs of a series as a single one.  Add more titles to your queue.  For example, if you have a 8 DVD at a time plan with 8 DVDs in a queue, but 5 of them are part of the same series, then you need to have a total of 13 DVDs in order to consider you queue full.  However, I do suggest putting about 18 DVDs in this theoretical queue since you need a buffer in case some DVDs are wait-listed
  2. If you are waiting for DVD #1, then after you get it and return it, there will probably be a wait for DVD #2 also.  If you are wlling to watch the series out-of-order, then put the series in your queue in reverse order.  You will get your DVDs faster.

Last Queue Tip
Put roughly 50% more DVDs in your queue than your N at a time subscription.  For example, if you are a 4 DVD at a time person, I would suggest having 6 DVDs in you queue.  However, I do not count DVDs that are wait-listed – only available now DVDs.  So add more DVDs as necessary.
