@Mrs.LetsGoPens: Ugh!  Really? No comment box?!? Wow they really don’t care about customer satisfaction.  I did see on their facebook page that they started deleting negative comments.

I’m still mad about it but I did think it over and I am paying the same amount I was paying when I first signed up with netflix and that was when they didn’t have streaming.  So I guess I shouldn’t complain too much.  For me the increase in fee was to pay for streaming which me and the DH don’t really care for.

I’m fine with hulu and other sites to stream my tv shows for free because I don’t mind watching them on the computer.  It’s the DH who likes to watch it on the TV.

If it weren’t for him, I would have cancelled already.

We don’t have cable so Netflix is our entertainment and I was pissed they increased the cost again! We currently have unlimited streaming and 2 dvds…going to switch that to unlimited and 1 dvd. Sadly we don’t have a RedBox by us that is convienent plus I like getting True Blood & Dexter DVDs since I’ve watched all the streaming seasons.

BOOO NETFLIX!

@MademoiselleL: I haven’t gotten an email from them saying anything. We ended up cancelling ours because the selection was so horrid, we were only watching movies to pay for the cost of nextflix, not because we enjoyed any of them. They have such a shit selection in Canada.

Am I the only person on Earth who’s not upset about this?

I’m not really all that upset about it. Yeah, it sucks but from what I read about it on cnn.com, it seems like they pretty much have to raise prices to be able to license movies for streaming. And a lot of people complain about the bad selection, but at the same time, offering a better selection (newer/more popular movies) would cost more money for them to offer. So then netflix would cost even more. 

That said, it does suck that the prices are going up…but its still a heck of a lot cheaper than buying movies every week, going to the theater, or paying for cable. And redbox has a terrible selection, especially if you like blu-ray!

I kinda like that I can stream it onto my iPhone and watch TV shows and stuff when I’m bored.  So I think I’ll keep it even though the selection isn’t that great for new movies.

@kate169: I agree with everything you said!  Streaming really doesn’t have the best selection but I still love it, I think that can be attributed to the fact that I love godawful cheesy horror movies.  Redbox has the absolute worst selection!!!
