My family is a big fan of Netflix. We get a lot of use out the service and turn around on DVDs is often under three days. Being a family of three and only using the two disc at a time option does have its share of problems so we have been thinking of upgrading to the three at once plan. Thinking about it made me realize something.
If I’m going to go to a three at once plan I would also like three movie ques. As it is right now my wife is the chief arbiter of what is on the que. Both myself and my daughter are free to add movies but my wife is the one who is on there most often so she does the majority of the movie juggling.
Why do we juggle? Because we are three and we only get two discs at a time. This means someone has to wait for their turn to open up.
Now, if Netflix had a Family plan that offered multiple movie ques I would be very happy. Each que could be set to have one movie out at a time and you would have no more problems with family members fighting over what is coming next.
Face it, a lot of family bloodshed can be avoided by doing this. I know I have been watching the incoming discs waiting for a particular item to show up for days. Only to find out later that someone moved the que around or otherwise messed things up.
It’s not so bad when you are waiting on a single movie but I like to watch multi-disc anime series. I do not want to get disc four before I have seen disc three!
That’s it, my suggestion. Have Netflix offer a special multi-que family plan. I’m telling you, it would sell like hotcakes!
