    Netflix= Over a Billion in revenue for the 4th quarter of 2013.
    Netflix= Price hike coming soon
    Netflix= Keeps losing rights to movies

    Netflix is great for its value but compared to 2 years ago, they are completed lacking any substance. Not only are they making record profits but now they will be doing a price hike. Less substance, more money. It doesn’t make sense.

    • Greg Arkadin says

      Revenues are not the same things as profits. Even in the best years, the company isn’t making tons of money, and they’ve invested in a lot of shiny new original content. They’re also paying more for studio content. For the price it’s one of the biggest entertainment bargains around.

  2. A. Singer says

    Netflix is basically a crappy video shop. It used to be that you went to your local good video store and you got actual new releases every week (or more than once a week even) plus all the old stuff that was less popular. Netlfix has now kiiled off most of the local video stores that we used to have and what do we get instead. More choice? The same new releases we used to get in the video stores but now online? Nope. Just the occasional actual new release, once a month plus lots of old stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the old stuff but it’s fair to say that Netflix is basically a crappy video shop – like the really crappy ones that didn’t even manage the new releases and they were rare.
