Netflix: No more Qwikster!

Earlier this year Netflix decided they wanted to charge more for their services. So my $9.99 a month plan for unlimited streaming and 1 DVD out at a time became more of a $15 a month plan. They separated the fee's of streaming and DVD rentals. This caused a lot of people to get angry and start canceling accounts.

Later on Netflix made a public apology stating that they were sorry about how they did that but that it was still necessary to keep the higher prices. However they also made the announcement that they were going to be splitting Netflix into two section. One called Netflix, which would be the regular streaming service we all know and then another one called Qwikster. Qwikster was going to be the DVD rental company and they were also going to be adding video games to their catalog.

Well yesterday comes another apology. Turns out most people didn't like the idea of having to have two separate accounts in two different websites in order to do the same thing they used to do under one account in one website. Who knew. . . .

So, basically we are back to the beginning where our prices went up and that's it.

  1. I'm happy about finally being able to have Netflix I think the price is fair. I would like to have newer stuff available but maybe once it's been here for a while. I really would not like to bother with the rental part. But that's not available in my area anyways.
