....In this day when we have access to just about any movie we want through other means, with anywhere from 720p to full blu ray rip quality, paying for both makes no sense.....
Think about what you are saying.
Should NetFlix consider just stealing their own rip, so they can keep prices low?
In the real world businesses have expenses, which they cover by charging their customers.
when prices go up they pass some or all of that along.
