People are free to use Netflix or go elsewhere, I just don't think it's fair to accuse them of being money-grubbing bastards trying to squeeze a few more bucks out of loyal customers. The studios, as usual, seem to be the real bad guys here.
I agree with this. Price increases were inevitable, and I don't think Netflix is doing it maliciously. The studios forced them to. Netflix may have had an awesome, cheap service, but they still need to maintain a profit margin.
The biggest thing really is the way they're dealing with these changes. The way they handled the complaints to the streaming interface was just embarrassing. "Oh, but we tested it. It's the perfect interface and totally not worse than the previous version. You naysayers don't know what you're talking about."
