End of Netflix’s DVD mailing service means free DVDs: What to know

Netflix will soon end its DVD mailing service next month, but users will be able to keep DVDs they don't return.

Netflix will cease shipping DVDs in about a month, bringing to an end a service it offered years before it became the streaming giant it is today.

The move to phase out its 25-year-old DVD rental service was first announced in April, with Netflix saying that its final discs will be shipped Sept. 29. Last week, the company clarified what will become of many of those DVD discs when the service officially comes to an end.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, the company’s DVD Netflix account shared that subscribers will not be charged for any unreturned discs after Sept. 29.

“Please enjoy your final shipments for as long as you like!” the post read.
