The streaming giant Netflix has confirmed via a blog post that it has shipped its final DVD, thereby ending its DVD-by-mail business operations.

The post states how they started the service back in 1998 with a copy of Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice and the final copy to be sent out was that of Joel and Ethan Coen’s 2010 film True Grit.
