I’ve been totally ignoring all Netflix mail (post and electronic) telling me to subscribe and all to check out their library of videos. Sure, I’m a RedBox fan, but that’s not the only reason I’m avoiding Netflix though. With the “streaming only” option, I may turn a keen eye on trying out a free season of Netflix.
Rumors about this streaming only package circulated last week, and I guess it was put to rest when the company CFO Barry McArthy said last Wednesday that they’re most likely to do that in the foreseeable future.
I think this is a great move and one that prepares for streaming savvy video watchers created by Hulu, Youtube and others. With internet speed and access becoming too fast and too cheap it makes sense to some (like me) to watch movies online. I’ve started watching my favorite TV shows online a year ago.
