Inside The Envelope

Come take a look Inside The Envelope, the official blog of Netflix DVD. Over 18 years ago, we found our humble beginnings with the delivery of the very first iconic red envelope. The idea of shipping DVDs to your door seemed like such a newfangled concept back then; little did we know that we were setting the bar for today’s ubiquitous on-demand delivery economy.

The first DVD we ever shipped! It's framed and hangs proudly in the office. The next milestone is the five billionth shipment.
