    Not me! I'm never going back to Netflix after what they pulled.

    After all the losses they just reported I'm sure they are going to try whatever they can to get people back. I still have my streaming but I'm not that happy with it, even as cheap as it is.

    What did they pull? I was glad with their price changes a couple of months ago. My monthly price for streaming and discs with BD went down 6.5%. That's a good deal when they lower the price of your existing service.

    They only had subscriber losses taking them down to 23.8 million subscribers. They still had record revenue and record profit for the quarter.

    The streaming library is still a deal killer for me. I don't need everything ever produced but I would like the big Hollywood movies after they have made their run through the box office and premium movie channels.

    I just hope it isn't as slow as the Hulu interface. I still use my xbox for both because the lag is just excruciating.

    I don't see how your prices dropped.

    Netflix has adjusted its offerings, separating physical disc mailings from Internet video. DVD-only subscriptions start at $7.99 per month, the same price as a streaming-only plan. But a monthly plan that combines physical DVDs with Web streaming costs almost $16 -- a 60% price increase.

    This doesn't even include the qwickster debacle which they did a 180 on and decided not to spilt streaming and dvd's into seperate companies/web sites.

    Their most basic plans went up. I think some of the higher end plans may have gone down or stayed the same. I changed my discs from three at a time to one at a time plus BD and I pay the same. I don't watch the discs often anyway but I like to always have one in the house.

    I'm talking about the subscriber losses and the stocks tanking. Next quarter profits are expected to be way down by the company.

    "And I say,

    Be not led astray: are not Netflix and TiVo CEO"s of the blind tech? And if the blind tech CEO guide the other blind tech CEO, do not both fall into the ditch!"

    Same here. They just sent me an email inviting me to come back again. Unfortunately, the loss of good faith is enough for me to take my business elsewhere.

    With 3 DVDs (not BD) out at a time my cost had been $20, if i wanted to keep streaming my cost would have gone up to $24, I gave up the streaming and my cost went down to $16, a 20% drop in price for my plan.

    The upper plan prices either dropped or stayed the same price. The one I was on at the time dropped 6.5%(8 out with BD and streaming)

    So does anyone want to discuss the new software or should we rename this the "Crying about Netflix prices" thread?

    Not much to discuss since it's not confirmed and we have no details.

    From what I've seen Netflix HD content is very limited and 1080p/5.1 content is even more limited, so to that part I say big deal. Now a better, more modern, Netflix client is something TiVo sorely needs so I hope that part is true even though I dropped streaming when the price went up.
