Well I’m glad we’re not the only ones bothered by this. We don’t have cable so netflix is our go-to for entertainment. I think they’re going to see a loss in revenue and maybe they might revamp their selections.

I hope they reconsider the changes. I know I’ll be cancelling or seriously downgrading before Sept 1st.

I was so irritated yesterday too! I use the streaming a lot but they took off several of my favorite TV shows. Boo. But I think we are going to have to cancel cause even though it is just a couple bucks it is a couple bucks that adds up fast.

I canceled mine, I was really mad too.

Has anyone cancelled? Do they try to give you a better deal to try to keep you? Or do they not even care?
I just got rid of the streaming. In the near future, I will probably use other ways to get my tv shows and so that means… See ya later, Netflix!!!

I got the email too! I hate that they are doing two different plans now. We will probably just stream from Xbox and Playstation now. It makes me sad, next up in my dvd list was the first season of Sex and the City! If only all the shows and movies could be streamed.

We don’t have cable either so Netflix was our go-to for tv entertainment. We don’t watch a ton of movies, we’re more tv series people, so we LOVED having the DVD option for our tv shows once the newest seasons were coming out. Think we’re just going to do the streaming & cancel the DVD portion since when we’re not watching a tv series, we let movies sit around for a week or 2.. not really worth it. Guess we’ll have to find another way to watch the new tv shows & just Redbox it when we want a movie.

This really upset me. Fiance told me that he heard tht Netflix wants to go completely stream. I understand that and it would be awesome to do so, but their streaming selection is terrible. I have a DVD sitting on my tv stand from March, and I think I have streamed one show in the past month. Sorry Netflix but you are being canceled.

I just canceled and it didn’t offer me anything else. But I canceled over the internet, I wonder if they will try to talk you into it if you call them and cancel.
On their website when you cancel it just asks you a bunch of questions, and it didn’t offer “canceling because of the raise in rate” as an option. It didn’t even have a comment box so I could type that in.

I’m surprised by the number of people who will be using redbox instead of netflix DVDs. Maybe the selection is different in certain areas, but our redbox doesn’t have that great of a selection, and the movies don’t generally “stick around” for too long after they’re released.
I’m definitely upset with the news. We were planning on joining netflix once we have more time, because they are tons of tv shows that you can only get through the DVD rentals. I should mention that we are currently taking advantage of the online streaming (thanks FILs!) and we use it all the time, but we’re almost done watching all of the good stuff!

I was planning on reducing my plan down from 3 DVDs since I don’t have time to watch a TV series right now. I might cut out the streaming since my husband hasn’t used it since we got our Bluray player in November.

I guess I’m the odd one out but I really don’t feel angry about it at all. Bummed, but oh well.
ETA- We are, however, just keeping streaming.

I am angry! it sucks. this is the second increase in the past year (they had an increase back in november 2010). i will just be keeping streaming because i am addicted but that is it!

I was so upset too!! We are doing the same thing…keeping our streaming and using Redbox when we want to watch a new movie.

Anyone know if this is happening in Canada too? I sure hope not, because our Netflix is so much crappier than in the US. We have way less selection, there’s no way I would pay double for it!
