    Yeah! Dr WHO as well.

  • I have been a subscriber of Netflix since the beginning, and I dropped the disc’s last week, and I am keeping the streaming only service. I feel like this move is a tactical decision on the part of Netflix. Previously, they stated that they want to do more streaming and less physical discs, could this be a calculated move on their part to force a drastic change? And with Dish Network buying Blockbuster, they have already said that competition with Netflix is the primary goal, you have to wonder, is such a drastic change really going to help or hurt business?

    Interesting, though i guess it does stand for reason but i guess it still thinks either way.. it probably would of been smarter for netflix to either rise the price gradually or charge the same for the stuff they have now but have a Premium streaming service that has alot more stuff. But who knows I am not a business major 😛

    i think a 60% increase was to much. but i understand them increasing the price. i am not affected though for i’ve always watched netflix using my ex gf’s account [her and i are friends] or using my cousins account. so yeah. totally not affected.

    i think they should of tried a 25% increase first to see how that would work.

  • I have used Netflix for years,but this price hike of 60% more, enticed me to drop the dvd package and go with only streaming,I would have left them for good but I was out voted

    I don’t have a big problem with it, and I’ve had Netflix for years you’ve got to look at what your getting for the price. PPV movies on satellite or from a video store are about $4, your paying Netflix $16, so simple math says if you watch more than 4 movies instantly or on dvd in a month the you’ve got your moneys worth an really don’t have much to complain about, and if you don’t watch at least 4 a month then you should probably just drop the instant streaming or dvd service.
