I subscribed to Netflix to watch movies, not to see what movies other people wanted to see. First they split the DVD-by-mail off from the streaming video and effectively doubled the price. Then, the streaming content was reduced to the point where you needed to speak Thai, Mandarin, or a variety of Scandanavian languages to watch anything without a subtitle. Needless to say, I cancelled my subscription several months ago. Turning it into Facebook will NOT lure me back!

Netflix is slated to face intense competition over the next few years, and it is likely best to lock in your losses at this point, rather than waiting for the stock to tank again.

Especially since Netflix just lost another mass of subscribers as they ‘accidentally’ locked out every Windows Media Center customer for 4 days, blaming it on Microsoft. That's ok, for those customers that didn't leave, they gave them a special rate for adding on DVD subscriptions - BluRay subscriptions for a month for free, following months less than half off the prevailing rate.

Oh, right, Netflix is poised for a gain...of debt.

Our family became netflix subscribers about 9 mos. ago. I’m STILL THRILLED with it. Granted, there are some movies I wish were streaming that are DVD-only, but for the price, and the fact that it streams through our Wii, or on any of our comps via internet is great, too.

Don’t understand what people were complaining about regarding all the foreign movies and such. I do think that their customer interface could be better - instead of changing up what they recommend based on your last movie actually let the customers see ALL of their choices.

Not sure I’ll ever use a FB application. Usually people just post in a status when they watch a good movie or documentary. No need to make it an actual application...

NetFlix streaming is great! At $8/month, it’s the best entertainment value out there.
