B-movie boob-fests make me smile.
I watch Doctor Who. I watch Bebe's Kids. SNL. Comedy routines. All the old 007 movies. All thanks to Netflix.
Now, I'm shopping around. Netflix has pissed me off.
Like the other 24+ million, I recently received an email regarding a change to their pricing structure. This is either the 2nd or 3rd change to their program since the beginning of the year, and this is the straw that broke this camel's back:
$1 a month price hike? That I can understand. $2? Pushing it, but ok. Service is good, and the variety makes up for the higher price.
$5 a month? An extra $60 a year? I'm sorry, for that extra price I better get something else for my money. Something 'above and beyond' like a hand job or a free puppy. (or puppies that give happy endings? too far?)
Time will tell. All I know right now is the blowback from consumers is getting fierce. Twitter was buzzing all night Tuesday night, and bloggers (including yours truly) are foaming at the mouth.
Bad move, Netflix. Bad move. I hope you see a mass exodus, and I hope your competition comes out with a smokin "FUCK YOU" deal. I'll be laughing as I take my business elsewhere. For me, I'll be marking 8/31 on my calendar as "Byebye Netflix Day."
