God I hope that it is just a rumor. Only Comcast acquiring Netflix could be a worse scenario.

Why didn't everyone run from Skype when MS bought it?

I stopped using it actually. They haven't really had much time to fuck it up yet but they are starting with mid-call advertisements and whatnot apparently so I wouldn't be too quick to assume otherwise. Generally people will leave if they have an attractive alternative and the original company prioritizes profit over design.

Hulu Plus is worthless, I actually get more value out of my Netflix sub since I don't have to stomach the ads and other bullshit. I'd much rather pay $20 for an adfree version of Hulu but they spin their little nonsense about how it keeps costs down (more likely it keeps people conditioned to ads).

Between Sickbeard and Netflix my content needs are more than covered, I could not possibly watch all of the stuff I want to.

I switched to Hulu to watch Community reruns.

I'm still paying for my Hulu Plus account, but I often wonder why I even bother.

Commercials
Confusing licensing: watch THIS on TV, but THAT on PC
etc

The only plus is it has some recent stuff in case I forget to record something.

Netflix being bought by Microsoft is about the worst possible thing that could happen to the company. Xbox 360 exclusive!

GTFO MS if there's even a slight possibility, you'll ruin it.

I don't even like having to use Silverlight, tho it works just fine.

I will drop it the instant MS purchases it, if that happens.
