The true irony is that you won't find a DVD selection as big as Netflix with streaming as cheap as they have it, even WITH the price increase. For people who only want streaming or only want DVDs, their new price of $7.99 is the cheapest out there. They are still King of the Mountains. O_o;
to bad they dont stream the good movies, even the older ones
Yeah, except for The Fellowship of the Ring, Midnight Run, Toy Story 3, The Terminator, Raging Bull, Insomnia, The Big Lebowski, The Iron Giant, Pulp Fiction, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Die Hard, RoboCop, Casino, Let the Right One In, Kramer Vs. Kramer, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Fighter… Hang on a minute, my fingers are getting tired.
They have a great selection but we live in an instant gratification age where if I can'ts gets my damn movie right now. To the piratebay I go.
The best thing about Netflix is actually their obscure, underrated titles that are impossible to rent locally and ridiculous to purchase. Going back in time to catch up on a new-found favorite actor can really only be done via Netflix.
With streaming, DVD rental is only an extra $8/month. Even at the cheapest outlet like Redbox, which has a VERY limited selection, discs are $1/day. According to Redbox, they average $3/transaction; Most people keep discs for an average of 2-4 day. Admit it – most people take movies back late.. so if you fall into the Redbox average, and you take out 3 movies / month, you still save money with Netflix.
