Are you a streaming-only customer?

I'm still on streaming/dvd together. I like new releases and I like Blu-Ray / HD audio. I spend $23 a month, but it's worth it.

@omnichad: But if we're both paying customers, I don't really like that you'd be getting your DVD service for free for a month while I don't.

@omnichad: Yeah I'm just doing streaming

Maybe call customer service and see if you can get a free month

I'm streaming only and got the offer for dvd free for one month, only one dvd at a time though.

I cancelled Netflix during their bonehead period a while back. Didn't have much time for it anyway. Recently got the free month streaming only email and signed up again, will prob keep it, but skip the DVDs as I never take the time to watch.

Slightly off topic: anyone know how acquiring the IP rights work, Amazon Prime vs Netflix?

Why does Amazon Prime have 2 seasons of "Sherlock" that I can watch for no add'l charge, but Netflix only has season 1? (Meaningful to me since Netflix has both Android and IOS clients, Amazon has an IOS client but no Android client unless one owns a Kindle Fire)

Also, anyone know why Amazon hasn't bothered with an Android client for its instant video service? Does Amazon perceive the non-kindle Android tablet market to be unimportant, and perceive the Android smartphone market for streaming video to be meaningless? I am annoyed by the lack on an Android client for Amazon instant video. :)

@f00l: I'm pretty sure Season 2 of Sherlock is on Netflix (the one with Martin Freeman as the sidekick).

I'm a streaming-only customer and I didn't get this offer. I probably would if I could use if for Blurays since I just bought my first bluray player last week.

@benyust2: you are correct, Season 2 of Sherlock is also on Netflix. I didn't give my phone time to load the show info properly. My bad. :)

Streaming only, and I got the email a couple of days ago.

I got the offer as well. Honestly, I'm not too interested in it. I'm typically fairly happy with the streaming options (I use it for TV more than movies since that requires significantly less of an attention span), so I don't really need it. It's a nice gesture, but I know myself better than to think I'll take advantage of the free month. I'd get one or two movies from it, tops. I doubt I'd forget to cancel, but I just don't have the need.

I got the offer. I only have Netflix for the kids' TV shows. Rarely, I'll watch a movie on there, but the collection they have to offer is kind of stagnant.

I won't be accepting any offer for DVD service. I am still in the mindset that if I'm only going to get 4-5 DVDs a month by mail, I might as well just go to Redbox since there is one within walking distance of my house.

Honestly, I've thought about dropping Netflix altogether since we recently got cable for cheap and my kids mostly watch Disney/Disney Junior and Nickelodeon these days.

@benyust2: you can for several dollars more on each plan.

I got the e-mail and I took the bait. Depending on how many DVDs I manage to watch over the next month, I might hang on for a few months.
