My wife and I agreed to drop down to streaming only since our current 12 dollar plan with dvds+streaming would raise by over 5 dollars a month if we left it as is.

We will give it a month...if we aren't using it or it fails to deliver newer titles I might as well drop it all together. I can get movies from so many different providers at this point that if they are going to make it a pain in the ass AND more expensive..what is the bloody point?

Oh, and the Starz thing is a joke. It has a fixed schedule. Why in the world would I consider that a "plus" or even an incentive to subscribe? If I want scheduled TV I can stick to DirecTV. The whole point of Netflix is to watch it when I want to...adding a service with a schedule (and PC only as watching it on my PS3, Wii, or iPad) is just least from my perspective.

Bottom line: I have never had a problem with price increases when content increases, or even the quality of the content improves. That doesn't seem to be the case here. I don't think 40% will actually quit, but I imagine quite a few will....if for no other reason then to see what "discount" offers Netflix sends them in an attempt to get them back as customers. Not a bad idea actually.
