    I don't mind the pay hike.

    Hell, I pay $10 a month on spotify just so I don't have to deal with the adds. But their new format sucks ass.

    My mom is milking off our netflix, and she watches nothing but shitty B horror flicks, and not the fun ones either. It's a nightmare.

    Don't get me wrong, There's lots of great stuff there to watch, it's just kind of hard to find, even if you do the search, I saw fistful of dollars on there yesterday, and did a search for clint eastwood movies, and it didn't even show up, but the other two did. funky.

    Yeah. If they were improving their selection, I wouldn't mind.

    But outside of TV shows- they NEVER... and I mean NEVER have a movie I search for.

    It's pretty amazing how sh*t their film collection is.

    Comcast colluded to buy Time Warner, threatened to throttle Netflix's speed, Netflix forked up millions, and passed that onto the customer, as expected.

    There's an internet thread in Taboo, which outlines this. It was obvious this was going to happen when Verizon basically caused the end of net neutrality, and now all 2 of the cable providers in the nation are going to do this more and more.

    If the day ever comes when I can afford to actually move out of my parents' house then Netflix will be a better option than cable based on price alone. Until that day comes, I ain't payin'.

    DW is absolutely right though. The movie selection is garbage. I was at the girlfriend's last night and we were going to watch a movie. I've wanted to watch Superbad for the last few weeks. Is it on Netflix? Nope. Of course not.

    And boom goes the dynamite.

    HBO teams up with Amazon to bring HBOGO exclusively to prime.

    Goes on Prime May 21st and Amazon TV later this year. I have Prime for free until October, so I'll be wearing that ***** out with Sopranos and The Wire until it expires.
