(CBS News) – The loss of Saturday mail could be a gain for Netflix.

Experts say the Postal Service’s new plan to deliver mail only five days a week, beginning in August, could save Netflix as much as $100 million next year on postal fees.

That’s because subscribers may be able to watch fewer DVDs for the same monthly price.
