I like Netflix and I like streaming video. But can I live with out netflix streaming? The simple answer is yes. Until September 1, when the
price gouging switch over begins, I’ll try to see if I’m spending my $8 wiesly. Last year I watched 19 titles in three months. With the new pricing, that comes to $1.26 a title. This year I watched 31 titles in 7 months, for $1.81 a title. That includes all titles, unfinished movies, or just a few quick views. So I really didn’t stream that much stuff. And in all likelihood, I’m not going to miss it.
So when I cancel, what are my options? I can always rent a movie from Amazon or iTunes for $2 or catch one of their $1 rental deals. I will still receive my Blu-rays, which I prefer because they look and sound better. Sure, it’s not as convenient, but i’m patient.
