My New Conspiracy Theory
« on: July 13, 2011, 12:12:28 AM »

Is Netflix purposely discouraging subscriptions to their mailed DVDs in favor of streaming-only subscriptions?  Right after waiting the longest I've ever waited for a DVD to finally arrive- about a week later than it was scheduled, I got an email notifying me of the new plan to separate the two subscriptions, streaming and DVDs by mail.  They're each now almost as expensive as it used to be to have both.  It's $10 now to have both.  It will be $8 each soon.

Discuss.

P.S. Inb4 ppl take me seriously.

Fuck Netflix

I've had them for about 9 months and they dont update their movies that often, and the ones they do add on a regular basis are usually older titles you could get from the library.

I just got this little box called a Roku. plays streaming media from hundreds of different sources, including Netflix, and a huge amount of them are free. Most of the online radio I want to listen to can be streamed with it, as well as the majority of news channels on video.... too much stuff to list here.

Im gonna be dropping Netflix very soon, like next month, unless they stop being so chincy with the streaming titles. I guarantee they wont, so goodbye NF.

Netflix screwed themselves.  If you like streaming, check out Amazon Prime.  It's cheaper than the Netflix plan and also gives you free 2-day shipping on all your Amazon orders.

Amazon streaming is included with Prime membership, BTW.

Amazon just made it WAY easier to use my Amazon VISA points too.  Amazon up 1.  Netflix way down.

Cool thing about Redbox is it can supplement something like Amazon Streaming.  Doesn't cost anything til you use it.  Fill in the gaps of what's not available to stream.

I know. Isn't that the best? Used to be such a pain in my assholes to order those certificates all the time, and enter the codes before I lost them. Fucking nightmare.

Now it's just "click", and then free shit.

Netflix is going to destroy it's customer base just like Ebay has, by screwing over their most loyal customers.  Nickle and diming your customers to death eventually gets old.  We all have some many more options now.  Greed is good...but sometime it is also stupid.
