Netflix addresses consumer backlash with new content, features.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/09/nQaVdl.jpg[/newsimage]Netflix may be faced with some unenviable prospects this fall, but it's at least putting on a brave face. Following Reed Hastings' mea culpa, the company has come forward with news to assuage subscriber outrage and perhaps even convince them to stick around into the new year.

All this does in convince me that Netflix doesn’t want my business. I joined back in 2006 to watch movies. Movies. Not TV. Seriously, if I wanted to watch Cake Boss or Deadliest Catch all I’d have to do is record it on my DVR. Have they given up on getting new movies to customers faster?

Unfortunately not for me I dropped with DVD/Streaming to just DVD. Cause I like to watch when I want to and on what players computer or standalone dvd/bd player. Not everyone has broadband or can afford internet access. I am lucky to have broadband but then again I like to do other things on the net as well so that is why DVD will suite me just fine. Also not all movies and my taste are streamed so that is where the limitation lies. What is popular for one isn’t popular to another or ones’ preference in movie taste. Even in the broadband internet world not everyone is has equal access to internet or can afford the cost of having internet at home.

True . . . but I also have HBO, Cinemax, Starz, TMC, and Showtime via DirecTV.

So I’ll eventually catch most of the movies at some point.

I don’t mind going down to my local Family Video store to rent something if I can’t wait for it to stream or be available via other means.
