Re: Price will be my deciding factor

said by aaronwt:

netflix currently charges $8 for streaming which is a good deal for the content they have. I don't see how another service could go much lower without losing alot of money.

When Netflix had their price changes, my price went down 6.5% not up 60%.(I had disc rentals with BD and streaming)

I had BOTH streaming and 1 DVD mailed at a time for $7.99 a month. Netflix upped the price FOR THE SAME EXACT SERVICE to $15.98 a month. AFAIC, they doubled the price of each.

I admire your math skills. Are you a politician?

Don't forget that Netflix had PREVIOUSLY raised prices from 1$-3$ only a few months before the 60% price hike that "was the straw that broke the camel's back". So ... before ALL the price hikes I was getting both Streaming/Mail at $7.99 a month and ended up paying $15.98 (sorry, my original post DID say $15.78, it has been edited). My math skills are spot on.

I had the eight out plan when the price changes took effect. The 8 out and 7 out plans with streaming saw price decreases (for the same exact service)and the 6 out with streaming(maybe the 5 out too, not sure) stayed the same price.

From Netflix FAQs:

"How much does it cost?

For only $7.99 a month, you get unlimited movies & TV episodes instantly over the Internet to your TV or computer. There are no commercials, and you can pause, rewind, fast forward or rewatch as often as you like. It's really that easy!"


and:


"Can I get DVDs by mail from Netflix?
Yes. During sign up, you can add unlimited DVDs (1 DVD out-at-a-time plan) for only $7.99 more a month."

Actually streaming and 1 DVD at a time was $9.99 not $7.99. And I'm sorry if you think offering streaming and 1 DVD at a time for $10 is profitbale then you try doing it. Netflix is NOT a charity nor is it welfare. No one owes you anything.
