we’ve had a good run, netflix

well, i thought i’d step up on the proverbial soapbox and give my piece about the topic you’ve undoubtedly heard something about: netflix is raising their prices.

as i’m writing this, i wonder if it’s even blog-worthy, but hey, i’m not one to hold back.

the price increase came at a great time for us. we loved netflix instant streaming for watching older television series’ such as x-files. we loved getting not-good-enough-to-see-in-theatre new releases delivered right to our mailbox. and we thought the price was fair for how much we used it.

for myself more than bryan, i haven’t watched something that i actually wanted to see on netflix instant for a few months now. i just watched disney channel shows on netflix because they were there, not because i woke up those many days and thought, i really want to see what happens to teddy on “good luck, charlie.”

bryan enjoyed a lot of the crazy misunderstood movies that netflix offers. but even he was complacent to netflix when i proposed we cancel.

we cancelled out netflix subscription as a result of the price increases, but more as an effort to simplify our lives. while we really enjoyed having such convenient tv & movies for a year and a half, we decided we’ll be better off with it.

thank you family video, for staying in business these past few years. i know it’s been rough, but you’re about to get a lot more business from us!
