With everything that's going on in the world of Netflix, they decide that "it's not really a good idea to split them into two separate websites". Really? Hopefully someone didn't get paid a lot of money to inform them of this.
One factor that helped Netflix rise to the top of the DVD/Streaming game was: Convenience (I'm sure price helped a little bit as well...).
The ability to not only rent DVD's that were easily sent to your house, but you could also search for ones that you could instantly stream. Two worlds from completely different decades, combined into one easy to navigate website.
After seeing that Netflix (or Netster or Quikflix or whatever they want to be called now) is having a change of heart after all the enormous backlash, all I can do is laugh.
Whoever they use as an ad agency should've gotten fired last week, I could've told them it wasn't a good idea and what do I know? Exactly.
Now I know that they're not going to reverse the decision on the price increase from July, but one can hope right???
