Re: Netflix and Warner Brothers Reach Deal

Great that people are giving their personal experiences as to why this won't bother them, but I still contend that you guys are the "power users" on Netflix, and not representative of the bulk of their customers. Not to say that regular users aren't watching old movies, but I'd wager that for a large majority of the users, the bulk of their queues are filled with new releases, and movies that have come out in the last 3 months or so.

I certainly agree that streaming is the future, though. Could see broadcast television going away completely at some point, being replaced by a version of TIVO-like service where everything is available, and new stuff just shows up on the weekly schedule...
