So, that brings me to the recent brouhaha over Netflix which split into Quikster and Netflix and now their customers are boycotting their new business models. My aunt has Netflix and I was surprised by it when I stayed with them because I didn't think that kind of business model would actually work. Well, if it was in the U.S. Yes, but totally not here. They send you DVDs over the mail (SNAIL MAIL-yes it still exists) and then you send it right back when your done. No late fees or anything, You just don't get the next movie in your queue until you return what you have. You can also watch stuff they have on demand in their website. All of these are legal. They actually pay for it. Incredible.
Now, their customers are at an uproar because of the separation of the DVD and on demand business. They have to pay two different accounts to get the different services they used to be able to enjoy with one account. I can understand their sentiment but DUDE! The Internet has this thing called Google and you can find t*****t or s*******g sites for free. Granted not everything is high quality but you get the picture. Now, I am not advocating any of this. (Really) but people need to chill. The tech is out there. Just be happy that SKYNET won't be taking it out down anytime soon.
Anyway, i guess it all comes down to money and their two business model is going to give them more profits that it did with their previous business model. How I wish I could think of some internet start-up and actually earn $$$$!
