President Clinton's Grand Jury Testimony Available
for 2 Cents Beginning Sept. 23
World's First Online DVD Rental Store
Sacrifices Profits for the Public Interest
NetFlix.com, the world's first online DVD rental store, announced the immediate availability of "President Clinton's Grand Jury Testimony" on DVD for 2 cents, plus shipping and handling, exclusively at its Internet store, www.netflix.com.
The leading online DVD retailer had originally offered the title to its customers for a $9.95 purchase and $4 rental price, but decided Tuesday to offer it for sale only at a lower price to encourage public education regarding these history-making events.
"Congress released this material with the intent that it be made available to the widest possible audience," said Marc B. Randolph, president and chief executive officer of NetFlix.com.
"By offering the complete Clinton testimony on DVD for only 2 cents, we believe we are making it possible for virtually every DVD owner to easily review this material and form their own opinion. In addition, we believe that the ability of DVD to let a user easily jump from topic to topic makes the DVD format uniquely suited to reviewing material such as this."
The four-hour testimony is organized into 99 DVD chapters so that viewers can go immediately to a specific topic. Chapters include: President Clinton reads his opening statement, Clinton discusses his definition of a sexual relationship, Clinton attacks the strategy of Paula Jones' attorneys, Clinton talks about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, Clinton denies allegations made by Kathleen Willey, and Clinton's attorneys argue with prosecutors.
With the world's largest selection of DVD movies, NetFlix.com rents and sells DVD movies to owners of DVD video players and DVD-ROM-equipped PCs at its Internet store, www.netflix.com.
The NetFlix.com site offers virtually every DVD movie, for rent or for sale. By focusing on online rentals, NetFlix.com is pioneering a new online retail model and e-commerce category. Founded in 1997, NetFlix.com has headquarters in Scotts Valley, Calif.
