In response to the drop in membership after Netflix rose prices by 60%, the company is now spinning off the DVD business into it's own company. The streaming service will still be under the Netflix name. Staying with both will still result in the new high price, but your credit card with now see two separate billings. One from Netflix and one from Qwikster, the new DVD business. http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/technology/netflix-qwikster-two-sites-two-queues/2011/09/19/gIQAVcXDfK_story.html I'm starting to think that Netflix best days are behind them. When the price increase was announced, I instantly dropped the streaming contents because, well, it sucks. The movies that are currently available is dismal in quality and popularity. I stuck with what will now be called Qwikster to at least get relatively newer releases via DVD. I may even drop that depending on just how often I use it. With DVR, On-Demand through my cable company, Amazon Prime video streaming, etc., I'm just not sure Netflix offers the value it once did.
