Well it’s been one hell of an unnecessarily dramatic few months for Netflix and it looks like they are having a bit of an identity crisis. Instead of bitching about all the indecision, I will instead realize that we do live in a time where the way we get our media is evolving at a rapid rate with a plethora of options. It is understandable that a company that is at the forefront of “Disc-by-Mail” and “streaming” services is eager to “evolve” and offer what they think is the best service possible. It just didn’t pan out this time. That does NOT change the fact that Netflix is the best in the business. I love Netflix and all of the options they have given me with DVD’s, Blu-Rays, and Streaming services all at reasonable prices. My only major concern is wondering if Netflix will still be adding video games to it’s “Disc-by-Mail” service. Below is the statement given to current customers incase you missed it:
“It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.
This means no change: one website, one account, one password…in other words, no Qwikster.
While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.
We’re constantly improving our streaming selection. We’ve recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we’ve added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.
We value you as a member, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get your movies & TV shows.
The Netflix Team”
