    Cancelled my subscription to Netflix with the new policy change. Won't ever go back, either. There are too many other video options out there to choose from. And besides, truth be told? Most of Netflix's movie choices were either very old or very B rated.

    Why did you cancel? I did hear they were upping their prices. Was it very much?

    I just cancelled my subscription today too. With the price increase it's not gonna be worth it. I'll hit one of the Redboxes near my house instead...

    Yeah, I am one of those and I have to tell you, I'm going to pay the extra $. I still can't beat the deal. If I do a movie a night and watch, return, get the next one, repeat - that averages 2 - 3 a week. At a RedBox that is $2 - $3 a week, X 4.3 weeks a month, that is $8.60 - $12.90 a month. With the new rates at Netflix it is $7.99 (plus tax call it an even $9)
    Lets go with I only do 1 a week but I keep each one for two days. Netflix still just $9 but with RedBox it is $8. Plus having to get to a Redbox.

    Then the streaming. We don't do cable, it is all OTA and streaming. At another $7.99 (call it $9 again) I get unlimited streaming while at home AND on the road on my iPad. Can't beat it. And yes, the arguments about not having tons to stream may be slightly valid but we are finding some great series available that we either never watched before or are from other parts of the world and are great series. Midsomer Murders is one that comes to mind. We love it.

    Even with the increase in price (lets say $18 a month), with my options on streaming and getting DVD's I am still paying WAY less than I was with cable and I really don't miss cable. Still worth it in my not so humble opinion.

    For those of us who use Netflix less frequently there is nothing good about the price increase. I use to pay $7.99 for a single DVD and unlimited streaming. Now they want to charge me $15.98 for the same service. Sorry, this is corporate greed at it's finest from a company that cares absolutely nothing for the customer. I can certainly afford the increase but that's not the point. If your phone, cable, electric, or gas company increased their pricing by 60% you'd be complaining as well. Besides, apps like Crackle, TWC, and HBO GO make it easy to find similar programming for next to nothing.

    I am glad I saw this thread, they never told us they were changing the plan, I saw this thread and decided to sign in to check our account, and yep starting Sep 1st the price jumps from $7.99 to $15.98, so screw that we can just keep the streamimg and start getting the dvds through redbox, we dont get that many dvds a month anyway.
