[Y!] Netflix to raise prices by $1-2 - Page 9

You also pay 40-80 bucks a month just to gain internet access to watch Netflix. They would, seriously, need day 1 release on movies to warrant a 50 dollar price tag. They'll also have to stream live content. 50 + whatever your service provider costs is not worth it regardless if they have a massive amount of content. As said, you'll need something to make that price respectable.

I think a lot of the people that complain about content don't have a very broad outlook.

Netflix is great for foreign movies! Dubbed, sub-titled (my preference between the two), and even native English movies. The movie scene over seas is a lot more interesting than most the rehash we get here from Hollywood.

Absolutely agree.

Hulu newer content, and amazon is cheap plus you get more then just streaming. For Netflix to raise prices when the others that have newer content are not, is questionable and a reason to be a little upset. Now if you are looking for more obscure movies and tv shows then Netflix is great! It just doesn't seem to pony up to the rest when it comes to the latest on the big and little screen.

Not a big deal to me since its for new users only. I've been a user since 2008. I also don't think the price increase is unjustified. They get new content quite often, and have much more available content than competitors. Sure they don't always have the newest movies, and are usually 1 season behind in tv shows; but what do you expect? You expect to pay $8-$10/month and get access to any brand new movie on release day and new tv show episodes the night they are aired? Sorry to bust your bubble, but there are these things called media rights, which cost money and time to obtain. If you NEED to have a movie on release day, go buy it. If you NEED to see every episode of your tv show as soon as its aired, then pay for cable/satellite service. You cant expect to get everything you want when you are only paying a small $10/month. Hulu Plus? Enjoy your commercials and only having the latest few episodes of your show available to watch, if they even have your show.

I'll take a minute of commercials now and then and have the latest episode any day . And Hulu has new and passed seasons of a lot of shows, not only the latest few episodes (for example as I mentioned earlier, Community). I also have a Netflix subscription but I enjoy Hulu much more.

Netflix? Enjoy last year's season... if they even have the show.

I love listening to the americans complain about netflix and paying like $2 more for it now. Try canadian netflix, THEN you can complain about lack of content. I cant even get the first iron man movie, I cant even get the first pirates of the caribbean movie. Last seasons show? Try shows that arent even on TV anymore, dont even get those.

If you love it then you're definitely in the right place. Enjoy! tongue.gif

PS. I'm not complaining about the extra buck or two, but I do think Netflix lacks content that interest me. I'm more into TV shows than movies. Probably because of time constraints.
