What do users here think of the changes at Netflix? The price increase, the seperation into two programs; one for streaming video, and the other for dvd's. And also, the dropping of SONY movies from the streaming service. Add to that a redesign for their service page that has people complaining all over the net.
I haven't used the dvd by mail program with them as I get impatient waiting for the availability of newer films that may already be available from my cable carrier. For example, The Lincoln Lawyer.
I only use the streaming video for many of the older films offered; especially, the noir films that can be found and not always available on dvd.
I plan on keeping the streaming service for $7.99 only. If you want both streaming and dvd by mail the price goes up to $15.98. I guess these changes were inevitable, but I did notice that their brand has suffered. They have dropped behind Red Box, HULU, and are currently in the unsatisfactory area inhabited by BlockBuster.
