Netflix Gets Envelope Redesign Pressure from USPS

Netflix’s handy red mailers have cost the USPS $41.9 million in additional labor costs over the past two years because they have to be sorted by hand. Netflix is being “asked” to redesign them or face a $0.17 surcharge per envelope. That equals a reported 67% profit decrease per subscriber. So — new Netflix envelopes, on their way to you soon.
