No Saturday mail could be a headache for Netflix, old-school bill payers

The Atlantic's Daniel Indiviglio reacted to the US Postal Service's November 16 announcement that it lost $3.8 billion during fiscal year 2009 by saying that cutting Saturday service “is a pretty reasonable idea.”

However, he named two groups that could have a problem with the idea. For one, consumers and companies that pay their bills via the mail.

The other group: Netflix, and other delivery services. Yet technology may do away with their problem at some point, he contends.

“As a Netflix customer myself, I admit that I wouldn't be thrilled with having one less day per week to mail or receive movies,” said Indiviglio. “But given their new on-demand service that I can access through my Blu-Ray player, I think I could supplement any lack of mailed movies through that option.”
