I’ve been a loyal Netflix user for the past 8 years. Hell, I even surround my Friday posts based on their streaming selections and never did I ask them for money, drugs or sex in return (and I’ve thought about asking too!)
If you’re a Netflix subscriber, then you too got an email telling you, “Guess what? We’re jacking up your prices so suck it bitches!”
Since then I’ve been seeing a lot of angry people posting about this change.
We all knew that the “streaming only” option was coming but I think a lot of us thought that it would be a separate option not an additional price along with our dvd rentals.
I like renting dvds. Yes, there’s the Redbox option but I like renting older things, stupid things, classic things. Redbox doesn’t have movies like Ghost Dad or Romero’s Martin on tap. My last Netflix dvd rental was the movie Altitude. I was curious about seeing a movie about a sea monster that attacked a plane in the sky. Yes, you read that right. Would I ever do a blind buy on something with that premise? Oh hell no, but I would rent it (and did) just to check it out.
So folks, poll me what to do! I feel the need to keep my Netflix account regardless because of the streaming option but do I suck it up and give up my hard earned money for the ability to rent dvds or do I break up with Netflix and put that money towards something else like dvds or a nice hat?
The poll is on the side for your voting pleasure.
