Angry Netflix beef

So I was looking to add Final Destination along with Tango & Cash to my queue since they release tomorrow on BD and low and behold netflix doesnt have them... theres been quite a few titles where ive ran into the same situation.

Not only are they about to jack our rates but they dont even carry new release titles? WTF

I just think its a shame that they are bending us over the barrel over a rate increase yet they arent providing more content for the $

Maybe they can't afford to add movies because they keep jacking up the rates and sending their customers over to blockbuster online... hmmmm...

Still doesn't explain what was wrong with what he posted-if you don't agree with his post it doesn;t give you the right to try to threaten him with the "banhammer." Gimme a break.

This was kind of the conclusion I came to when I chose to drop them because of the hike. Same thing with Comcast. Both companies really weren't living up to expectations (Comcast PQ has gotten worse and worse, and worse, you get the idea), and the instances of us checking Netflix for a title that isn't available, or at least not in a timely manner,were getting more and more frequent.

So, last time Comcast sent an increase notice, we got rid of 'em. Wasn't honestly happy with the service at the price we had been paying, so the idea of paying more for a service we weren't ecstatic with meant our $ went elsewhere. Same exact thing with Netflix.

This is also why the Netflix argument can go around in circles for hours, if someone is happy with them, they might not mind paying a little more for the premium content. Kudos to you, glad you are getting the value for your $. If you're not loving them already, this might just be that push you needed.....

Do you even know what the word means? Stop crapping up other threads by bringing up other arguments just because you're throwing a tizzy over what people are "getting away with". You've done this in no less than 3 threads now, and I'm getting fed up with it. If anyone deserves a ban, it's you.
