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!

I wasn’t pleased with the “Quickster” debacle either. The thing about Netflix “watch now” that is nice is that I too cancel my subscription from time to time but there’s no “re-connection fee” as with cable and utility services. So it is month to month. You can take a break for a while, come back - and it saves your old queue when you come back. And it is easy to cancel online and restart (unlike with some web based companies who deliberately make canceling torture).

Despite the imperfections of NFLX, I have tried the other options like Amazon, YouTube & Hulu and they all BLOW compared to Netflix.

Hmmm... that wasn't my experience. I don't have streaming and my "two at a time" DVD price went down, from $15 to $13/month.

Agree. I, too, was a subscriber until they split the DVD and jacked up rates.
Have not been back since. They promised more great titles on the streaming side, but have never delivered.
