They have to figure a way to make back all the canceled subs cause of that movie. Good move Netflix. All you did is push the rest over that were thinking about cancelling.I just canceled yesterday due to nothing interesting to watch. I'm quarantined at home and found more on Amazon prime and HBO that interested me. Plus the whole cuties thing discussed me. Only thing I'm going to miss is stranger things if they come out with a new season.
Doubled my Netflix fee a year ago when I got a 4K TV. I'll stick with it for now but it's moving closer and closer to the chopping block.
I haven't been watching a ton of content on there recently. Saw something about the Cuties controversy but that all seemed overblown clickbait.
Stranger Things is good. That ones keeps me around.
edit - oh, and The Haunting of Bly Manor. Need to watch that. Hill House was great.
I'd be interested in the impression of someone who watched it before the controversy. Reading reviews from before the controversy, it sounds like it's supposed to make viewers squeamish. I guess it's kind of like making a movie about child soldiers. It's heart-wrenching, but that doesn't mean it's not a valid topic.Here, have a summary. TL;DW: it's not overblown clickbait.
Damn. There goes another half a beer a month. maybe I'll cut back on a single coffee.*
Not worried about this increase at all.
*I don't drink coffee.
Edit: If I cancel it now, in 3.5 years I can afford a 3080, and maybe they'll be available by then!
Frankly, as long as an entire month of Netflix costs less than a single hour of work or less than a single trip to the movie theater. I'm good.So how much more can they raise it before you become "worried"? When we've regressed back toward $150-300 monthly Cable/satellite bills will you be worried then? Because we're headed in that direction right now (arguably already there) with industry fragmentation that requires you to subscribe to multiple services simultaneously in order to have access to most content. A "small" increase becomes a "big" increase if you subscribe to 5 services and each one raises their cost a "small" amount.

show was great.. then some one started tripping on acid when they made the final episode.. made absolutely no sense.Hah, I'm getting pretty close to the finale. Overall it's been enjoyable so far.
we all knew it was going to at some point anyways.. problem is people have no self control and allowed it to happen. i only pay for 2 streaming services and it's going to stay that way, disney can kiss my arse if they think i'm going to give them money and HBO can suck it because they refuse to put their app on roku.
Ad Block Plus, if you use firefox, fixes the youtube ads along with some other sites that put ads in their streams. I can't stand watching youtube with commercials.Yeah I think you're right. I mainly watch YouTube these days but it's starting to get unbearable with all the ads. Most videos you have to watch a 15 second ad before it and most of them have at least one ad in the middle.
Don't get me wrong, I get it.... YouTube is free and they gotta pay the bills somehow but they're fast approaching the point to where it's not worth sitting thru the ads just to watch a 5 or 6 minute YouTube video.
True unless your TV runs android tv or you setup your on pihole or equivalent. I use pfblockerNG and don't get ads on any device on my network. My wife still doesnt know why her phone doesnt work "right" anywhere else but home. I tried telling her why she doesnt see ads but she glosses over.Doesn't work when using the build in app on your TV.
You can block it at the gateway with a firewall.True but I mainly watch YouTube on my Roku and TV in my living room so can't use Adblock. Plus I really like the channels I watch and don't mind watching an ad or two to help them make ends meet. I just don't want it to turn into what cable is where you've got 5 minutes of commercials for every 5 minutes of content.

Sailing across the digital seas,
Pirating all that I can see,
Wondering what that can be,
Let me take it so I can see,
Yo ho yo ho, a pirates I lead.......

For the shows that I want to see,
Not paying your increasing fees,
For the shows I don't want to see,
Yo ho yo ho, a pirates life I lead......
