Can I Rip DVDs Rented from NetFlix? 

Does it break the law in our country to rip DVD from NetFlix, RedBox and Amazon? We know that renting DVD is more cost-saving than purchasing DVD. Because it may take $20 to purchase a DVD but only $1~$2 to rent a DVD from NetFlix. However, DVD rental may not be cost-efficient if we want to watch a movie time after time. Therefore, we need a NetFlix ripper to backup movies for permanent watching.

4 Reasons Netflix DVD Rental Isn’t Going Away 

1. DVDs by mail remain very profitable. Netflix may have seen demand for discs decline — its subscriber base has fallen to 5.3 million from 6.3 million during the past year alone — but its DVD-by-mail business was still good for a contribution profit of $77.9 million in its latest quarter. That may be a lot less than the $340 million contribution profit it generated during the same three months from its domestic streaming platform, but it’s still higher than streaming on a per-subscriber basis. 

It may be a shrinking base, but it’s not broken. It’s still making money, and there’s no reason to close that down. 

2. Discs are a gateway drug. A lot of people are still renting physical media. Outerwall’s (OUTR) Redbox lets TV buffs rent out 146 million discs during the second quarter. As pervasive as Netflix may be, just a third of the homes in the U.S. are currently subscribers. 

As for the rest of the country, some have tried it and moved on. Some just don’t have the broadband capacity to stream effectively. However, for those still relying on their DVD players for entertainment, offering this platform is a good way to attract homes that will eventually migrate to the larger streaming service. 

3. There are still plenty of voids in streaming. As massive as Netflix’s digital catalog gets — and it grows along with its subscriber base — it will never have every single DVD release on its streaming service. Studios want too much for newer releases, and rival services have exclusive streaming rights on other magnetic content. 

That’s where DVDs come in. Until Netflix decides to follow the lead of smaller rivals by offering newer releases on a pay-per-stream basis — and the company appears to have no interest in doing exactly that — there will continue to be holes in its programming. Netflix can always point to its DVD library for content it doesn’t have available to stream. 

4. Netflix has made big investments in its fulfillment centers. Netflix isn’t actively promoting its DVD offering, but it did make a big investment to make its mail-order business more sustainable. Cutting down on the number of distribution centers — to 33 from a peak of 50 — has helped cut costs, but the real investment came in automation. 

Netflix originally had people slicing open returned envelopes, checking the discs, and repackaging them for their next journey. Now a machine is able to process five times the volume. This is an investment in innovation and technology that will continue to keep the business profitable even as more customers let it go.
