I too dropped my disk plan and went streaming only. I love Netflix. For $8 a month you can't beat their selection, and they are always adding new/recent movies all the time.

The hate that they got was ridiculous. Yes they raised prices, but it was only a few dollars and only on the disk side. That's just business though. They have to spend money to get the rights to rent/stream movies and that is getting more expensive for them, so they have to bump cost and trickle it down to us.
Expect to see DISH to go up here soon also after dropping all that money for AMC.

I don't see you screaming at people at the store because milk is a few cents higher than it use to be. So just stop.

I use the mailing service ony, and my monthly amount went DOWN. I like it. I have a different situation here in that I use a satellite internet service where I live which limits speed and usage. There is no other choices out here in the woods. LOVE using them.

We're with them, streaming only. I don't get the whole "need another chance" thing, though. If their current product is what you want for a price you're willing to pay and they don't rub your moral compass the wrong way... pay for it.

I'm signed up for streaming as cable service is too much of a strain on my budget nowadays. No real complaints. The price is good and the selection is wide enough that I can never say that there's nothing to watch.

Netflix doesn't need another chance, the business model they had was unsustainable. For ~$8, they deliver me a broad, slightly dated streaming catalog. If I combine that with Hulu for this week's network sitcoms, and Amazon Streaming for buying episodes of individual cable shows I'm into, I can get away with paying like $20 for all my media a month. These days, Netflix does what it does well and I'm happy to subscribe.

I had the Streaming + 1 DVD/Blu-ray out at a time so my price doubled. I didn't really care for the streaming and we'd always have a movie sitting around for a week before we had time to watch it. So them upping the price was a good excuse for me to get rid of it. I recently purchased Prime for the year, that combined with the 300+ U-Verse channels w/ free on-demand is good enough for me right now.

I never stopped using them. But, I'm only on the 1-disk plan. I'll probably drop it and just do streaming (which I think their selection blows), but I can get movies from red boxes when I feel like it.

I never was a Netflix subscriber, but I have witnessed the carnage here on DW. IMHO they haven't really done anything radical by separating the streaming from the shipping. Different products have different prices.

I never canceled either.

It is much better than cable's prices. My thoughts on the matter is the cost went from an impulse $8 to $16 (if you wanted both). $16 is still a very good deal for what you get, but what are you going to do, it's only about $3.70/week for both or $1.84/week for streaming only (not counting tax).

I'm with the "another chance.... wtf you talkin bout???!" camp.

I never saw a reason to drop them.

I never considered dropping them. We have both streaming and the single disk plan. Since we don't have cable, we can watch all of the TV shows via streaming, and use the disks for the more esoteric items.

I got a free streaming subscription for a year from them when I bought my new TV. I think it is alright but a lot of the movies my wife is looking for with the streaming (like Hurt Locker and everything Jeremy Renner) is not there.

For me personally I was excited to find the Spiderman cartoons from the 90s so it has been a mixed bag.

I had the 1 Disk and streaming, and dropped the disk when they doubled the price. I've kept streaming since then. I'd like it if they had some newer content, which has gotten me to think about Hulu Plus, but it's too much work to change ;)
