Hope it's not a huge queue..from what I hear, the DVD-by-mail service, you would have to re-add everything to your queue.

ShredLife from where i stand these companies just shouldn't be raising prices in an economic climate like this. its exactly the same as Wells Fargo tacking on a $7-10 monthly fee to checking accounts out of thin air, food companies putting cereal and condiments in smaller packaging but charging the same or more - and all the other stuff that corporations do to nickel and dime the consumer. now is not the fucking time and i am fucking sick of it.

I always had that problem with the DVD plan, good thing they forgive a couple lost dvds a year.

My biggest problem is the fact that with increased competition you would think that if they decided to double the price they could do it alongside an upgrade to the service. The damn iPhone app never works right and cuts off all the time and their online collection is just not good enough. I'm thinking maybe a streaming plan with 1 free dvd a month or something, not sure what they could have done but I know they should have done something.

ecks I read the email this morning and felt as though he was looking for sympathy for making a fucked up decision. I cancelled my netflix subscription after reading it, I'll use amazon until netflix gets it shit together. It sucks that the netflix competitors are so far behind but I'll use HBO go on my iphone/ipad and amazon at home because I refused to pay even a few $ per month for a subpar collection of streaming movies a and a company run by a senseless CEO who doesn't know how to properly scale a company.

This does remind me of the whole techcrunch mess if anyone has been following that.
