Wow.  I’m really glad you guys posted this because Netflix couldn’t be bothered to tell me.  SO not worth the $20 a month it’s going up too.  I feel terrible for recommending it to everyone now.

Yeah it sucks. We are going to cancel the DVD portion. Since we don’t have cable, we use the Netflix instant channel on our Roku so that’s where most of our TV watching material comes from. Oh well :-

We don’t have home internet so we cancelled the insta-streaming – just have DVDs now. I’ve only had them maybe a year and their prices have gone up twice – so annoying.

Whats most annoying me right now is their radio silence. They drop this bomb yesterday, social media explodes with anger, and there is not a PEEP from them. Its like they popped their heads out of a bunker to make the announcement and now they plan to just lay low, take cover, and wait it out for a while before they begin participating in life again.

I wish it would let you do 2 DVDs per month + streaming. We watch a lot of stuff that isn’t available with Redbox, so I am keeping it. It’s still way cheaper than going to the movies at least.

I think when I first got Netflix (way towards the beginning) it was $18 or $22 a month for 3 dvds. Then I went to $10 a month with 1 dvd… so it’s still falling in the middle for me.

I got that email too. I considered switching to just streaming, but the movies on streaming suck. They are all reallyyyy old titles or movies Ive never heard of. We already pay too much for our cable, I can’t justify spending $20/month for access to crappy movies.

I think we will cancel too! 20$ a month seems a bit high! Red box here we come! Too bad we live in the middle of nowhere and still need to drive 20 min to get to a redbox!

Yea, we had a discussion about that last night wondering what the reasoning was behind it.

It sucks because it’s like the 2nd or 3rd time this year they have raised their rates. We’ll be switching to streaming only once this cycle ends.

@Bostongrl25:

Streaming only is 7.99/month.

Lately they have also been a lot slower to get new movies on DVD and I feel less of it because there’s a longer than usual wait for new movies.

We currently have the streaming/dvds & thier selection sucks on both. It’s nice to have options readily available, but I seriously don’t understand why there are SO many not just old, but BAD old movies???

I know very little about this & I’d like to switch to someone else. Who else offers the instant streaming through PS3?

@CaptainSpaulding: I’d like to know too!

My Fiance and I were just discussing Netflix and trying to reduce costs on them and now with this new news, most likely, will be strictly streaming. I can get DVDs from Redbox/Blockbuster for cheaper than holding on to the DVD portion.

It pissed me off too. I think we’ll probably keep the streaming, but just get DVDs from the local Paradise Video lol. It sucks…it was such a good deal.
