Netflix.... Or......


Netfuck-ups?

"The customer backlash against the higher rates, kicking in this month, has been much harsher than Netflix Inc. anticipated. That prompted management to predict Thursday that the company --the largest U.S. video subscription service-- will end September with 600,000 fewer U.S. customers than it had in June."



What did they think? That an America, in the grips of a bad economy, poor jobs outlook, and crippling unemployment, would shell out two times the amount of money for movies? Yeah, streaming is nice, but really, I can do without it. What with RedBox having $1 movies, and Blockbuster discounting their services, It just isn't that important, especially since some folks can barely afford to keep their internet up an running what with all the cable & phone companies upping their service fees as well.

Hope Netflix enjoys the mass exodus!
