    Default Question about netflix

    If the govt shuts down after midnight Friday, I have heard that the USPS will stop running as it is non-essential.

    How would that effect netflix? I know must people use instant watch, but what about any DVD's we have out / ones we want to return

    Would netflix simply work out a deal with another carrier like UPS or FedEx? Or would they just suspend mail delivery until something gets worked out.

    Answered my own question

    With the budget issues in Washington you may be wondering, is the post office open or closed during a government shutdown? I called the US Post Office Consumer Affairs department today and asked them if mail would be delivered during a government shutdown and if the post office would be closed or open during a government shutdown. They said that since they are separate from the US government (though still run by them) that the US Post Office would be open if the government is shut down. Unlike federal government departments like social security, the US Post Office is self funding so during a budget fight if the government is shut down the mail will still be delivered and the post office will be open.

    However, passports application/renewals will not be processed

    Come on...though rain, or sleet, or snow....or government shutdowns...could you imagine what would happen if people couldn't get their mail? Madness. Madness, I tell you.

    Can somebody check their netflix instant watch and see if current season 6 episodes of How I met your Mother are available to watch. We just got done watching seasons 1-5 on DVD and dont' want to wait until September for season 6 DVD. The itunes pass for the current season is like $50 bucks. Thats way too much!
