Netflix policy change

NetFlix is changing their rental queue policy:

We wanted to let you know we will be eliminating Profiles, the feature that allowed you to set up separate DVD Queues under one account, effective September 1, 2008.

Each additional Profile Queue will be unavailable after September 1, 2008. Before then, we recommend you consolidate any of your Profile Queues to your main account Queue or print them out.

While it may be disappointing to see Profiles go away, this change will help us continue to improve the Netflix website for all our customers.

If you have any questions, please go to or call us anytime at 1 (888) 638-3549. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed by this change. Having separate queues make it easy to split up movies so that you can get movies for the kids on one queue, and movies for the parents on the second queue. Now you can’t do that. Not sure why they’re doing that, but I bet I’m not the only unhappy person about this.
