Re: Corporate Bullshit Spin

said by d1gw33d:

I don't understand this. You read BBR so I would imagine you're aware the restrictions content providers place on Netflix. Yet you blame Netflix for lack of content?

I'm blaming Netflix for giving a bullshit excuse for the incredible price increase. Do you work for Netflix?

If you look for the last post (months ago?) on Netflix, I am a tremendous supporter of them. If they would just explain that they are going be raped by Hollywood and renegotiations, may be people would be more sympathetic.

Edit: Here is that last post of mine I spoke of. And I still haven't seen Dexter.

And it might bring some attention to the real issue, the price and restrictions put on the content by the distribution companies.

There's no need to try to convince me you're a fan of Netflix. I really don't care - I just noticed your comments seemed to be up in arms about Netflix when even with the price increase ($6/month... really dude?) it's more than fair compared to the options available.

Which we can review;

Cable - Please. Please sell me a bundle of channels which are 95% not of interest and charge me $100/month. Oh but you can save $ by bundling services! $180.

Satellite - Same... only with contracts!

iTunes/Vudu/Etc - Charge per movie. No thanks.

Redbox/Retail - No.

Hulu - lol

Netflix - Streaming only @ $7.99 and so so content with a few gems each month.

Piracy - Fine with me and free.

But yes. "Vote" with your wallet any way you want. It's your life. I'll still call you a moron.

You're not really that swift at reading comprehension, are you? I'm not upset about the price. I'm upset about how it's being done, and the false reason described by Netflix behind it.

This is where you and I disagree. I don't find piracy to be fine. I find it to be conveinent and easy, but that's about it. There needs to be a fair line someplace between the raping of the customer and piracy.

You know many people are switching to decaf these days. You should consider it.

Hollywood rape or not, I just can't see paying $8/month for partial access to a "best of the 80s" movie streaming service.

If this move will finally make their streaming service whole & complete, then great - I'll stay and be a happy customer. However, paying $8/month for the service they offer today is asking too much from my wallet.
