We went to just streaming.
We went to just streaming.
Well, Darling Husband & I both had accounts, so it was for 2 reasons that I cancelled mine. The costs were getting too high, and he had an account, so it just made sense. Furthermore, Darling Husband cancelled his DVD subscription, and now only has streaming. Netflix made such a poor decision with their new business plan – they were doing so well before!
I heard they were going to change the pricing…but didnt know it already happened. We probably won’t cancel yet, since I’ve started using it more. But we stream through the playstation, so this might be something for us to talk about. Thanks for the heads up!
We switched to just the live streaming. We hardly ever went to the trouble of doing the mail service anyway. I just wish the newer movies came to live streaming quicker.
We canceled entirely. We went with Amazon Prime.
I really don’t understand what all the fuss was about regarding their prices. Maybe because I was always surprised at how cheap it was and that they never raised prices, I figured it was long overdue. I got an email giving me a heads up the price would be raised and was totally fine with it. lefeymw said she thought smaller frequent upgrades would have been better but I personally dislike those. I guess because I feel like I have no idea where they’re going to stop and that it’s just nickle and diming.
That said, I voted “Yes we downgraded” although that was only because it was long overdue. We had had the same movie for 2 months and the one before that for just as long. Streaming is all we really needed so we went ahead and dropped to that plan.
I never got it. I’ve checked it out a few times, but in Canada their selection isn’t great and of the movies I’ve been interested in, they have had like maybe 1 of the 10 I’ve checked. Maybe when I’m done school I might look into them again.
There are no video stores near me. There used to be a Rogers and a Blockbuster. When the Rogers closed (it was the closest) Darling Husband and I sought out the Blockbuster, and argued about where we thought it was located. Got home and checked, at the time they had reduced to only two in the city (before they went bankrupt). The Safeway is a 5 min walk though, and has a DVDplay machine. $1.88 with tax is way cheaper than what the video stores used to charge, and it’s more convienant – grab a few groceries on a friday night and a movie.
Just take a look at their stock price! Honestly raising their prices has hurt their business incredibly!! The all time high on netflix stock is 304.79 a share.. it’s currently at 83.53 a share
We never had the DVD plan… Only streaming & then would rent from redbox so it didn’t change for us & we’ll definitely keep it bc we don’t have/want cable.
We cancelled it. We were so bad about sending the movies back that it meant we were going to pay $5 for movie. So it’s better to go to redbox or buy it from directv
We downgraded to streaming only.
I was disappointed in the price hike, but we also don’t have cable. We exclusively use Netflix and Hulu (the free version) because we’re cheap. So, while an extra few bucks a month is annoying, for us it’s still cheaper than cable.
We downgraded to streaming but I’m contemplating cancelling that b/c I’m kind of burnout on the choices they offer. It’s kind of meh.
We were streaming only, then switched to the DVD and streaming plan. Once the price went up, we decided just to stream and get from Red Box instead. It’s cheaper in the long run for us.
