Netflix Customers Added 2 Million Movies In The Queue During The Oscars

Posted Feb 27, 2009

Nothing gets music and movie fans going more than when they see their favorite artists and actors win awards for their performances.  This is why award ceremonies like the Grammys and the Academy Awards are such a hit.  Thanks to Netflix, movie buffs can now set up a list of movies that they want to see next in a queue delivered to their door step.  The Oscars.

Apparently the Oscars really got Netflix customers going because they added 2 million movies to their queue during the three hour program.  Slumdog Millionaire was the top added movie out of all of them, but 56,000 different titles were also added.  At Netflix’s low price of starting at $4.99 and their free trial, its hard to go wrong.  You spend more on one cup of coffee than your whole monthly movie subscription after all.
