Netflix Users Protest Proposed Price Increases With Social Media Firestorm

During a discussion on this very subject today, we speculated that Netflix had thoroughly vetted this decision before announcing it. Maybe not, considering the reaction. This is one to watch. This is a huge price increase for those who both have one at a time DVD and also use the streaming.


  1. Yeah I just got the email 1st thing today. Netflix is good but, this is the 2nd price increase in less than a year.

  2. I agree that the negative reaction is likely to be raising eyebrows and neck hair in the Netflix corner offices.

  3. Got this in an email today:
    Recently you may have had trouble instantly watching movies or TV episodes due to a technical issue on our end.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. If you attempted and were unable to instantly watch TV episodes or movies yesterday, click on this account specific link in the next 7 days to apply a 3% credit to your next billing statement for your $7.99 a month Unlimited Streaming plan. Credit can only be applied once.
    HHHMMMMM I wonder. :-)
