On the Anniversary of Qwikster, Netflix Disc Rental Subscriber Share Down 23 Percent
The NPD also says that disc renting is down overall, in correlation with the closure of rental locations.

Funny, we just cancled streaming and switched to disc only. The netflix streaming catalog is really outdated and we never watched anything as it was so old. At least with disc we get new movies and we actually watch them. Red box is nice, but we just got sick of having to return movies in 24hrs.

Ask yourself about these skewed numbers. Although disc rental is a smaller percentage of their business, how many millions of people dropped their services altogether?

I am one of the few who cancelled streaming and went disc only. I use Amazon Prime Video for streaming now and Netflix for anything that I can't stream.
I see no compelling reason to justify the increased price if I were to add streaming to Netflix.My collection RIP: 2007 to 2012

Kind of ironic that Netflix stopped stocking Blu-rays when they would become available, did everything to push people to streaming, blew up their business with an absurd rate hike, and now all their streaming content is getting stale while their disc service has been crippled.
