    Any here planning to dump them due to the increase? I was..but then I thought about it. Unlimited streaming movies from an extremely large selection and 1 dvd out at a time for 16 bucks a month is way cheaper than Charter Cable and their very small selections of free movies. I'm keeping Netflix. What about you?

    We are using their one month free trial right now, thinking about joining. So you think it's the best deal out there? Good movies and such?

    I think they have a great selection, myself. Lots of foreign flicks, too. I like them because they give us Starz...which has the Spartacus series. They don't have HBO though. But..at least I can watch Spartacus. And many other movies. I like the selection, personally. I have watched more movies than any other time in my life..and some I wouldn't even know about without netflix. And they are cheaper than my cable service.

    I'm a big fan of Netflix but with this price increase, I'll probably just keep the streaming feature and Redbox the new releases.

    I called them about the reported price increase and they told me that my monthly streaming fee of $7.99 will not change. The change is coming from a DVD rental, combined WITH streaming. Netflix has gone global now and has changed the way they are bundling the services. So it is my understanding that IF one is streaming AND renting, there will be an increase. Streaming only, remains the same. Netflix said they are separating the two ways to receive their services and are pricing them individually.

    I love Netflix and it's selections of films. If I want to see a DVD they don't have streaming, I just go to my Amazon app and stream it from there beginning at $2.99. I have only done this 3 times in many months.

    Amazon starts at .99!

    I'm watching Dog Whisperer episodes @ $1.99 a pop now.

    I was talking about streaming movies, not TV shows, but maybe there are movies for less than $2.99...just haven't been there often enough to notice.
