In a significant end-of-an-era moment, Netflix has dispatched its very last DVD rental. For Generation X, this isn't just a headline; it's a poignant reminder of a bygone era of entertainment.
Now, marking a definitive end to an era, Netflix has sent out its last-ever DVD rental. As of September 29th, the chapter of physical rentals for this streaming behemoth has closed, with the final DVD title being 2010's "True Grit". While film and television aficionados can still find DVDs elsewhere, Netflix's decision cements its evolution into a streaming-only platform.
"In 1998, we delivered our first DVD. This morning, we shipped our last. For 25 years, we redefined how people watched films and series at home and shared the excitement as they opened their mailboxes to our iconic red envelopes. It's the end of an era, but the DVD business built our foundation for the years to come — giving members unprecedented choice and control, a wide variety of titles to choose from and the freedom to watch as much as they want. Today, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for watching."
