Re: Downgrading over a one dollar price increase?
said by LovedaFlicks :i was spending exactly $0 a month on blockbuster, two maybe three times a year id spend $5 at movie gallery when they had the 5 movies 5 days $5 deal's. so $15 a year.
People are downgrading over a one dollar price increase? NetFlix is still the best deal going. Ask yourself how much you were spending, on a monthly basis, at BlockBuster or RedBox before you signed up for NetFlix. I guarantee it was a MINIMUM of a buck a movie!
We are on the two DVD at a time plan (btw, it is "at a time", not "per month" - BIG difference!) plus we stream. We watch a movie almost every night, and DO NOT subscribe to cable TV at all.
We've been using NetFlix for almost two years. At first it was a bit flakey, but for the last year it has worked with very few problems at all. Only once did we get a scratched disk. If NetFlix detects any kind of streaming errors, they send me an email with a link to click to get a two percent discount off my next month - even though most of the time there was no problem to begin with.
as to it "only being a dollar" i dont know about you, but i have a distribution center in my state, that means i pay taxes on that dollar.
and the only reason every package is going up is so they can point to the streaming tier and say "well, thats cheap, try that!" fact is streaming has a limited selection of NEWER movies. if you really like OLD movies and B films then streaming is great. now i dont blame netflix entirely for that, its the **AA's fault on that because they wont get with the times. but i DO blame netflix for thinking every ones too stupid to see the real reason they raised rates, and it has nothing to do with demand on there systems.
