I haven't had any issues with my Blu-ray discs coming in the mail. I always get the next one in my queue but I'm not one that has to have a disc the day it's released, I have no problem waiting since there are plenty of other choices. I really don't pay much attention to what is a new release and what's been out awhile. I just watched Captain Phillips last night and enjoyed it immensely. I did cut down from three discs to two after their last price increase but I'm still very satisfied with the service.

The measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.

I found it interesting that "NON STOP" and "LONE SURVIVOR" were not rental copies even though the discs were from Universal. The special features worked which are usually removed from Universal titles!!! "LONE SURVIVOR" was also listed as "very long wait" but I got it finally last week.

I just canceled my Netflix BD plan last night. So my month runs out on July 26th and I need to have the discs in around a week later. I guess if Netflix offers me a deal I could re-subscribe. But the last couple of months they had just been wasting my money by not sending me anything even though I had no titles at home.

Despite the fact that my returns are received by Monday, I've never been able to get Lone Survivor, or Non Stop and now it's Sabotage that has gone into a very long wait status? Please! I seem to be making trips to the local Red Box lately, so I reduced my plan. If this new trend continues, my subscription will not.

I also have Sabotage on my Netflix list. I looked for it online at RedBox. But Redbox shows that it won't be available until August 19th. So I guess I will be able to get it from Redbox then. Which will still probably be quicker than Netflix would have sent it to me.

I've already decided to cancel my Netflix Disc service at the end of my current month and use RedBox more and www.3d-blurayrental.com for more 2D rentals. I'll still use Netflix streaming, but after renting discs from Netflix since early 1999, they will now lose me as a disc customer.
And you'll be doing exactly what they want you to. You played right into their schemes. Better to drop them completely and tell them why.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

My service isn't what it used to be. It isn't terrible, but I've begun periodically calling them up and having them open a ticket for whatever issue and part of my statement is that I look to Netflix to be my main content provider, and that means keeping up good bluray disc service. If they loose my disc business, they loose ALL of my business.

Why would I drop them completely? No service out there can match the Netflix streaming service. And lately on FiOS I've been getting Super HD any time of the day, any day of the week.

Heck I need access to several streaming services to be able to access all the content I want. Since no streaming provider offers everything. I currently have a subscription to four streaming services. Plus I use several other streaming services that I pay per title to watch or have a catalog of previously purchased content.

Netflix wants everyone on their streaming service. They actually want their disc service to die off. Canceling your disc plan only sends them the message they want to hear. They don't consider that punishment at all.

Many people with home theater systems understand that at this time (and probably for a long time to come) that Blu-ray is still the premium delivery medium for HD video and audio and don't want the disc rental business to dry up completely.

Yes. The only reason I can drop it is because I can use Redbox and www.3d-blurayrental.com to continue renting Blu-ray Discs. If I did not have those options then I would have never canceled my Netflix Disc service.

Bottom line though is that Netflix will be making less money from me. They easily made money from me with my Disc rentals since I didn't get alot from them.
