Netflix Scam Streaming Only System is Bad

I have a streaming only account. With the implementation of the new streaming only system, Netflix has significantly reduced the number of movies available as compared to the combined streaming/mail in program. The results are a restricted number of choices, determined and changed by Netflix. I was watching a series and all of a sudden it was no longer available and the series has been off TV for over 10years……can’t be because too many people were watching it!!

Why did Netflix reduce the number of available videos…..most of them of old, off air, or low viewership anyway so the mail-in crowd isn’t going to be losing anything in the process.

I see this as another attempt to up the corporate profit margin because there is no real competitor to Netflix. Why couldn’t Netflix just keep all the streaming videos it had in place before the organization boondoggle and as the mail-in videos lose interest to viewers or copyright and royalty issues are met, move these to the streaming only group. I intend to spread the word among friends re: the Netflix sorry service.

5 Customer Complaints about “Netflix Scam Streaming Only System is Bad
  1. August Cassiato says:

    Last night at 11pm when I had decided it was bed time, I turn on the Blu-Ray player then in the morning when I woke POOF! 110 of 137 instant videos I was watching where gone, vanished. I found it in the recently watched page on their web site and when I noticed that my instant-Que went from 137 to 110, I had a heart attack! So I called in with their service number.

    To my shock I was told that the contract had expired with the supplier ( Stars Play ALL OF THEM) where gone. they had removed all the old westerns I loved and came to them in the ’90s to watch. I don’t like the cussing and other “modern shows” they suck to me. I just want what I had agreed to. They won’t replaced it and I do not think I am alone, AM I? Wagon Train; Gunsmoke; Have Gun Will Travel; Rawhide; Cheyenne:

    ONCE IT IS IN YOUR INSTANT-QUE, THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMOVE IT.

    Their add says:

    ” Instantly watch as many movies & TV episodes as you want!”

    They leave out that they will pull them after they figure out which ones are the most popular.

    These things have nothing to do with one another. Netflix makes the best deals they can, for the longest amount of streaming time. If you’re unhappy with the shows that have been pulled, you need to contact the rights-holders, not Netflix.

    “The results are a restricted number of choices, determined and changed by Netflix.”

    No, determined and changed by the rights-holders. Netflix doesn’t own these movies and shows. They purchase the right to stream these movies and shows for a limited time, under limited terms. The terms for each movie, show, or bundle can be drastically different, involving different amounts of time and money. Again, Netflix works to keep as much streaming as possible, but they are stymied by the rights-holders, who are concerned about the competition.

    “I was watching a series and all of a sudden it was no longer available and the series has been off TV for over 10years……can’t be because too many people were watching it!!”

    No, it was because Starz declined to renew their contract with Netflix, for any amount of money. This decision has been widely reported. I find it hard to believe that you missed this news.

    “Why did Netflix reduce the number of available videos…..most of them of old, off air, or low viewership anyway so the mail-in crowd isn’t going to be losing anything in the process.”

    Netflix did not reduce the number of available media. The various rights-holders did, although you, I, and Netflix all agree that their reasons were short-sighted and stupud.

    “I see this as another attempt to up the corporate profit margin…”

    On the contrary, Netflix offered huge amounts of money to various companies to license their content. They all said no.

    “…because there is no real competitor to Netflix.”

    There are several competitors to Netflix, from cable TV to Amazon Prime to Hulu. Even Blockbuster has a streaming service now, and several more on the way.

    “Why couldn’t Netflix just keep all the streaming videos it had in place before the organization boondoggle and as the mail-in videos lose interest to viewers or copyright and royalty issues are met, move these to the streaming only group.”

    This sentence doesn’t make alot of sense, but it seems like you’re still protesting something that you think Netflix did. You’re wrong. Netflix would love nothing more than to keep those shows on the air. They are well aware that they are going to lose folks like you over the streaming content, and it is their main area of focus. Unfortunately, they can’t force the rights-holders to license their content for streaming.

    I intend to spread the word among friends re: the Netflix sorry service .

    You should spread facts, then, and let them know that Netflix is no longer a vaulable service to you because other companies have a stranglehold on entertainment media.
