    I cancelled the DVDs-by-mail feature when the Qwikster thing was introduced (mostly because it annoyed me). Now, we just do streaming. I thought about signing up for the mail feature again, but it’s just not worth it.

    We decreased from 3 DVDs at once to 2 DVDs.

    I didn’t cancel because my kids LOVE the shows on there, and we had Blockbuster which was almost $40 a month. So this was much cheaper.

    We downgraded from streaming/DVD in the mail to just streaming.

    Blockbuster is still around?

    Yes. Partly because I was annoyed with Netflix, but mostly just because our home entertainment bills were getting out of control. Redbox, Netflix, HBO, Shotime, all those premium channel package things. My husband also catches PPV boxing sometimes. We’ve had to seriously cut back, especially with another baby on the way.

    I didn’t change anything. I’ve had netflix for 8 years and the pricing has been so steady for so long that I kind of felt like the increase was long overdue. I just don’t like the way they handled it, but whatever, I’m only paying like $5 more so who cares.

    We cancelled but it was long overdue. We hadn’t been using it for a while and the price increase got the ball rolling. Feel bad for them, as it wasn’t really an unreasonable increase compared to what we get, but they handled it just terribly.

    We canceled in my house too, because of the poor service and the price hike.

    We used to have Netflix and actually cancelled before the price change.  We just found we used Hulu Plus a lot more than Netflix so it wasn’t worth paying for.

    I decreased from 2 DVDs and streaming to 1 DVD and streaming.  Now we pay around $20/month and that includes Blu Rays.  I think that’s more than a reasonable price for pretty much unlimited movies.  I kept the DVD option because I like getting newer movies, and some rare horror movies I watch are not available streaming.

    @Mrs.KMM:  we did the same thing.  Kept the streaming but reduced from 3 to 2 DVDs.  I love the streaming capability, but we wanted to keep the DVDs too because there are so few new release movies on streaming.  I think this is about to change – Netflix just made some big deals with movie production houses, but we will decide whether to keep the DVDs once these agreements go into effect.

    We just have streaming so it costs us $7.99 a month… we’ll keep it probably until it changes.
