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

We got rid of Sattelite 2 years ago for Cable, and ditched it a year ago. We have an HD antenna in our living room and bedroom, and get crystal clear local channels. The only thing I really miss at this point is ESPN for Monday Night Football, but it's a small price to pay for the extra $80.00 a month I save by not having cable.

We made that choice because of Netflix. We understood and agreed with the choice to raise prices back in July. But this... splitting off the DVD business... is a pain in the neck. I love a lot of older movies, and often times the only way to get them is on DVD. Now I'll have to juggle two accounts to handle that? No thanks. We'll keep the streaming, but I think we're going to try to get what is in our Netflix DVD queue watched quickly, and then cancel the service.
