â¿¿ POSTAL CUTS-GLANCE â¿¿ Details of Postal Service's planned cuts in Saturday mail service



SAN FRANCISCO â¿¿ Netflix won't miss Saturday mail delivery, even though the weekend service helped keep the company's DVD-by-mail subscribers happy. The U.S. Postal Service's upcoming shift from six to five days of home delivery may even make Netflix Inc. slightly more profitable by lowering the costs for sending out its familiar red envelopes and reducing the number of DVDs that subscribers can watch for a monthly fee that remains the same, no matter how many discs get checked out. By Technology Writer Michael Liedtke.
