probably the tv/movie studios wanted a bigger cut since network/cable tv is dying.

Still hoping for a Shenmue 3.

No big for me, I only stream with interest in DVDs so the price remains the same! neo

A raise in price without a raise in quality (not enough Movies in HD) will make it easy for me to quit them. Redbox will do just fine when I need a movie.

I already pay around 13 dollars, two more dollars will not break the bank. Plus, the increased revenue may lead to better things on instant streaming.

(Also, I don't have Showtime and Netlfix is the only way to get Blu Ray copies of Dexter. So yeah...)

Correct me if I'm wrong (Im in Canada and have only used a Netflix free trial) but isnt this a price DECREASE?
It says they had the plan at $9.99 but now its $7.99.

Yeah, I'll most likely just quit the dvd part of the plan, and keep Instant Streaming. Redbox is far more easily accessible when I want to watch something really recent.

BOOM! THAT JUST HAPPENED.
