said by newview: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 $10 is profitbale then you try doing it. Netflix is NOT a charity nor is it welfare. No one owes you anything.
Don't forget that Netflix had PREVIOUSLY raised prices from 1$-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.
