    I have to think that 95% of their customer base doesn’t even remember they have it and autopays the small fee every month.

    This is terrible timing with many people still upset about cuties.

    Combined with the fact that they haven't had a big hit in a while.

    I love netflix but I have to admit I'm scrolling around looking for something to watch a lot longer than I used to.

    Also disney plus is still cheap as hell and the mandalorian season is about to come out.

    They're on thin ice.

    Only thing good of recent was I Am Mother.

    Either way I don't pay for tv of any kind.

    It's still the best streaming service.

    Hulu has crap besides Fargo, which is awesome.

    Amazon Prime has nothing besides The Boys which just ended.

    Disney only has... well, Disney (kid's stuff).

    Netflix on average has better shows/movies.

    That's what they rely on, similar with UFC Fight Pass. I subscribe to a local sports streaming service here which shows all the fight nights and prelims that Fight Pass do, so I only really need it to watch the old events, sometimes I'll go a month or two without using it.

    Are you guys really happy with the quality of pirated content?

    I've tried it and it's an endless parade of shitty websites with tons of ads and probably malware, broken links, poor quality or buffering or freezing, or you get some shit in a different language. If you ever do find a good source then it gets taken down and it's hard to find a replacement because people don't want to post it online in case it gets taken down again. In conclusion, please pm me the new source.

    Yeah I know of at least one that did.

    I know that a lot of people were upset though and raising your prices might be the final straw if a customer is already mad at you.

    I don't even mind them raising their price, but this is a bad business move to do it now. They should at least wait for their next hit show, like joe exotic the tiger king. Shit everyone in the country was talking about that show so you felt left out if you didn't have Netflix. That's when you raise prices, not when you're in a slump.

    This was always gonna happen. They gotta make their money. It's is what it's is, if you use it frequently you'll pay. I know I will. For now.

    I suspect thats the reality for the net as a whole, so many business have basically been surviving on investment but at some stage they are going to need to shift that into actual profit and then prices will rise considerably.

    Netflix is awesome and a great value. I don't know how people can complain about it. I use it almost every night. I also have Prime and ESPN+ which I use less.
