Re: Price will be my deciding factor

At a price of about $4.95 a month I'd be interested. Gouging people like Netflix has opted to do will not win any friends.

If you believe $4.95 is reasonable for unlimited streaming, I don't think you are the target customer for Netflix or this future Redbox Verizon venture. You are better off stealing content and being "happy" than to expect an unlimited buffet of options for less than $5.

Apparently 800,000 other people decided Netflix's price point was too high also ... and Netflix has yet to recover.
These companies who attempt to sell services at 200-300% markup will eventually fail.

Amazon's streaming is only $6.58 per month at $79.00 for 12 months of the Amazon prime plus you get free shipping on their website. They have a pretty good Selection and they keep adding to it. They don't have as much as Netflix does but they continue to add new stuff.

People jumped ship because Netflix management decided it made sense to raise prices dramatically all at once. They need to learn how the business works: raise prices more slowly, up to 5-15% each year, every year. It works and doesn't cause as big as stink as their strategy this year.

Amazon doesn't have near the library that netflix does.
