    It's become a "safe haven" for Adam Sandler, and friends, movies. Which is sad...

    I watch enough Netflix, between my wife and I anyways, to justify the what $8-9 on Netflix. Easy enough to drop if that changes

    I think the strategy with Amazon Pantry is do your normal amazon shopping as a Prime member, select the slowest shipping possible on your items, collect the free $5 Pantry vouchers and cash in on bunch of household items.

    I'm a prime member because i get that next day delivery on nearly everything. I'm a fan.. cant wait around for pantry vouchers

    I am glad you brought this up.

    I feel the same way after they removed almost all of Futurama, Bobs Burgers, etc.

    I struggle to find something I am midely interested in anymore. Their ratings system is the worst I have ever seen and that menu music.....

    Making me think about going back to Hulu and canceling Netflix.

    This type of thing was easy to see coming. These other companies let Netflix build and sell the model to the consumer. Now streaming is just how people are used to getting their content and the companies with the caliber of libraries to pull it off will all eventually start their own.

    Lucky for Netflix their OC is top notch. I'd have a hard time canceling on them based on the OC alone. At least for as long as the pricing model remains justifiable. The good thing about these streaming services is you aren't locked in or anything so you could always just rotate your subscriptions to save money.

    I actually just canceled Hulu a couple days ago. Realized I hadn't even used it in like 3 or 4 months.

    I watch almost exclusively Netflix. Haven't had cable/satellite in years (7?) and I have Amazon Prime, which I would use more often if their navigation wasn't so awful.
    With that said, I'm disappointed to see Disney pull their stuff to attempt starting their own. I don't watch much, but they just added Rogue One (saw it in theatres too) and the Clone Wars cartoon. I actually didn't know FX was pulling off shows, the moment It's Always Sunny is off Netflix, is the day I start looking for another streaming channel. Easily the best show on TV.

    The article says the Marvel shows will remain on Netflix. And I don't see any reason they wouldn't continue to make them.
