Re: Netflix shoots itself in the foot... aka no more free streaming

Now they have no choice but to renegotiate the licensing and they fully expect the studios to demand extortionate fees, .
That seems to be the expectation. And with those high fees, to me it seems Netflix has about 3 options:

1) Raise their fees. And we see how that's being received.
2) Remove content from their streaming library, effectively killing streaming, IMHO.
3) Go to some type of limited streaming/pay per view model.

None of these options seem very palatable to us as consumers, but if Netflix is to survive, they're going to have to implement one of these options (or some combination thereof.)

I'm not happy about a fee increase of any kind, but at least I feel like for now anyway, it's still decent value for me for what I get.
