Re: Oh Netflix, I Knew It Wouldn't Last

Yay! I just got a 20% price discount by dumping streaming, which I never use anyway. But Netflix is not very smart to incentivize customers to consume less and pay less, especially since them sending me DVDs costs more to Neflix than if they somehow convinced me to opt for streaming.

And that's what they really should be doing - making streaming more attractive to the die-hard DVD crowd. The first step is making sure their streaming options are on par with their DVD options, which I know must be a monumental hurdle (especially since cable and movie studios are far more threatened by streaming and will throw up more obstacles). But as long as I can get any kind of obscure shit I like on DVD but not streaming, I'm sticking with DVD. The deep library, not just new releases, is what I value in Netflix.
