Netflix parodies Amazon’s drone delivery service with ‘Drone 2 Home’ [Video]


Remember Amazon Prime Air, Amazon’s ambitious but very cool drone delivery service? It’d be understandable to forget either way, since we don’t really know when or if the project will even happen. In the mean time, Netflix is poking fun at the idea with its “Drone 2 Home” service. The parody service will deliver DVDs of your movies that you add to your queue in mere seconds:

“We have literally spent days working out most of the bugs,” says¬†Hank Breeggemann, who is in charge of Netflix’s DVD division. Sounds like we can trust them guys!

    [@JMJ] Hahaha! That’s exactly what I would have said!

    [@Mike S.] Right! And with internet plans and data caps being the way they are, it could be a great alternative for Blu-rays and 4K content.

    Very cute, Netflix!

    And it’s not all that far off an idea–actually, a pretty good use for Amazon’s drone delivery concept, with such a light and replaceable item.

    [@Enrique Manalang] I actually am a New Yorker, so it’s okay for me to say that, for use here, it had better have a super-duper GPS system, collision insurance… and an armed guard! :-) :-(

    [@JMJ] I think I heard about that one! It’ll be interesting to see what it’s like years down the line. How are they gonna launch it in cities like New York?

    Thanks for the find… and good laugh, especially as I loVe Netflix.

    I seem to remember recently reading of delivery drones having been test-deployed in less densely populated areas of some wealthier Arab nation, just as Amazon envisions. It’ll work, too, I bet.
