I paid my last bill to them 8/2014. I get an invitation every 2months for another free month.
I loved the service and was with it from about a year after it was available. By the time I quit, I barely liked it and used far less frequently. I found myself scrolling the titles for 2hrs and still not finding a movie I hadn t seen or wanted to watch and that is lots of titles. once , it took me so long to find a movie my eyes hurt too much to watch. I pulled the plug with lots of anxiety, took many months for me to finally make that decision and then deactivate the service.
I was one of the most disappointed quitting that than anything i've discontinued. I always felt that they would improve in a few months
but that is just my feeling about the service. I know there are plenty of titles for a large segment of video watchers .Kid, animated shows ,etc. Just not to my taste doesnt make it a bad service at all.
If i still had kids around no question but i would have kept it
I guess I got spoiled at the beginning and the potentials for the company to realize more profit and the arrival of serious competition from source companies made the business decision to split services with in netflix inevitable . I had streaming and home delivery of that initial huge variety for just the price of the home delivery plan , how many dvds I had at one time streaming was almost treated as an after thought . I still paid $24 month then 4 dvd at a time and then the sur charge for blu rays. I guess part of my decision to leave was that sense of losing services or having them taken back and fees going up .
I still lament that loss but it was good while it lasted.
What makes Netflix shine is their investment into streaming original content. Even HBO can't keep up in terms of programing and Netflix is still cheaper. Their DVD service still provides the best inventory of new Blu-Ray releases, at a reasonable price, which has always been my main concern.
