I know they were going to spin their dvd business off into qwikster, but then they cancelled that, so DVDs are back at netflix, right?
I must be blind because I don't see any way to order a DVD gift subscription
edit: found it
Can I get DVDs by mail from Netflix?
Yes. During sign up, you can add unlimited DVDs (1 DVD out-at-a-time plan) for only $7.99 more a month. With DVDs by mail, you'll get an even broader selection of movies & TV episodes. You can exchange each DVD as often as you want with no due dates or late fees — ever! You can add access to Blu-ray discs to your account at any time for an additional $2 a month.
so looks like no-go for a dvd-only option
