Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne.

You know Netflix has your email address when you start seeing endless offers to try it out for a month for free. Myron Robinson managed to score a year of Netflix videos and online streaming at no cost, though he did more than submit his credit card information. Robinson tweeted a photo of his new Netflix tattoo. The company tweeted back: No way, free year for you. Netflix did not respond to his offer to work for the company. It's MORNING EDITION.
