Netflix was founded in 1997 as a movie rental service and also selling DVDs. Since then, its business model has dramatically changed. Netflix is currently the world’s biggest streaming service, with over 200million paying subscribers.
But Netflix still has a DVD-only plan. Apart from the platform’s various streaming packages, you can also pay for the Netflix DVD-only plan.
How Netflix DVD Plan Works
Netflix has two DVD-only plans: Standard and Premier. The standard plan lets you rent one disc at a time, while the premier plan is limited to two. But you can rent as many discs as you like per month with either plan. Netflix will ship the DVD or Blu Ray in one to three days, and you can keep it as long as you like. Once done watching, you can return the disc to Netflix. Shipping is, in most cases, free, same as returning the disc. If you pay for the Standard plan, Netflix will ship the next DVD in the queue after you’ve sent back the one you currently have.
Currently, Netflix DVD-only plan is only available in the United States.
Netflix DVD-only Plan Price
Netflix’s DVD-only plan has two tiers: the standard tier and a premier plan. The standard plan costs $7.99 a month, and the Premier DVD-only plan costs $11.99 a month. If you wish to include Blu Rays in the mix, both plans will cost slightly more. The standard DVD plan with Blu Ray included costs $9.99, and the Premier plan costs $14.99 with Blu Rays included.
Movies Available on Netflix via DVD or Blu Ray
When paying for the Netflix DVD only plan, you won’t have access to tones of a variety of movies like what’s available under the streaming plan. Netflix has few movies on DVD and even fewer on Blu Ray. But if you prefer the DVD only plans, check out all the list of titles available.

You don’t need an internet connection; Blu Ray discs provide better quality and cheaper than the standard Netflix price.
For that reason, Netflix DVD plans are worth it.
