Netflix wasn’t always a streaming video service. It began as a DVD rental service that did all its transactions through the mail. You went online, put together a list of DVDs you wanted to watch and for a fee, you’d receive a steady queue of packages in the mail. When you were done viewing, you mailed them back. It worked really well until the DVD market began to collapse, which is went Netflix made its extremely successful pivot to the position they currently occupy.
A company VYNL is now replicating the old Netflix business model with vinyl. Go to their site, pick some records you’d like to hear and then start watching the mail. Once you’re done, mail ’em back–or buy the record(s) starting at $12 each, a reasonable price in today’s market.
You might also want to investigate a similar service called Vinyl Me, Please, which costs upwards of $23 USD a month.
Hey, if you’re just getting into (or back into) vinyl, this sounds like a fairly painless way to get started.
