That is really sad. I was considering signing up with them, but won’t now. I bet they lose a lot of business…

Wow, that sucks. We currently have the streaming and 2 DVDs out at a time. That’s only going up $4/month. But I think we’re going to cut down to 1 DVD since Darling Husband prefers just the streaming.

I use it mostly for TV shows so eventually I may get rid of the DVD plan and sign up for Hulu Plus instead.

Netflix is evil. I’m so annoyed at them. Especially since basically all that we use it for is tv shows (both streaming and dvd)… and there really isn’t a better option for getting the tv show dvds. But I think we’ll probably cancel the dvd side anyways on principal. We pay 9.99/mo for it bc we like blu rays and there is no way we’d use that many red box movies/mo.

 

To netflix? A big ol F U.

yeah, i am so irritated. I think I might just get rid of them totally. There are definitely other options that I now prefer.

Yyyyyyyyyyyeah we don’t use them as much as we used to. And we really don’t need that many movies.

Apparently they’re looking to do streaming exclusively so it makes sense that they’d raise the price for physical DVDs and get people to stop using the feature. Of course, the problem with this is they can’t get all the DVDs streaming due to the copyrights on the music, so. Shucks.

@beekiss: we haven’t watched a dvd from them since like…. october? The thing is… the few shows we really like to watch (like true blood!) arent on instant streaming. But I just talked to Darling Husband and he agreed we just cancel our dvd now. I wish everyone could just agree to simultaneously drop them entirely for like 3 mo to force them to not be assholes.

this pissed me off too!  that’s a huge increase, & we don’t watch enough dvds to justify keeping that part of it.  so i guess it’ll just be the streaming stuff from them now

Yep, I’m pretty sure we’re canceling.  FI brought up the point today that the only things we stream are shows we already own, they haven’t had a good movie on instant watch in foreverrrrr, and we’ve had the same dvd sitting here in the apartment since January.

Sorry netflix, your loss.

Yeah, not happy about it either. Didn’t they just have a price increase in January?  Now another one?  Also, I know Blockbuster stores went out of business where we live. 

Really annoyed that this time last year, I was paying $12 and then it went up to $15 and now it’s going up to $20.

I think I’m going to get rid of the streaming part.  Although, I wish I could get rid of all of it.

I would go to red box if it weren’t for the fact that they don’t have tv shows.
