I wouldn't call this great.. I'd call it stupid to be honest.
The streaming only option, to the consumer, is a rate hike.
Really? Since I never intend on renting a DVD ever I'd say I saved myself $1 a month. If I want to rent a DVD I'd go to RedBox.
Really?! You stand behind that logic? .. that's the same stuff that politicians and corporations love to operate under.
If YOU aren't a current customer, then this doesn't apply to you. I am CLEARLY talking about current customers. This IS a price increase. And, if you wanted to join JUST to stream and even if you didn't take a DVD, the price that YOU would join under NOW is the same price WE got prior, so it's STILL a rate increase.. you saved nothing.
