Re: So I cancelled Netflix today.
From the articles I've read about this, Netflix is practically stating outright that the price increase is to try to drive people towards the "Watch Instantly" only plan. Apparently it's a better profit margin for them.
I don't have a hard time believing that; it certainly costs less to stream a movie than it does to maintain a physical inventory at distribution centers across the country and pay for the shipping and receiving costs.
