Conan O'Brien Has The Inside Scoop On More Netflix Changes

from the is-it-too-subtle dept

If you have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks, you are probably not aware that Netflix dramatically increased its prices, separated its streaming and DVD by mail services and then branched the two services into two different companies. You have also probably missed Netflix CEO Reed Hastings’ apology and explanation of the debacle. In case you fit this bill, here is the video:

You probably thought that was the end of it.

Well, Susannah from Team CoCo wrote in to tell us that Netflix has even more up its red sleeve to make our movie viewing experience even better.

Honestly, I think having Paul Hogan come over to hang out is quite the deal for only $1.49 a month.

I think the fact that a late night television show took time to make fun of the Netflix “apology” adds weight to the discussion that took place here (and other places) earlier in the week.

This isn’t just a nerd rant that will echo in computer-equipped basements; mainstream media has picked it up and is mocking the moves of Netflix. When it gets that bad it’s noteworthy (even if it failed to amuse you).

OMG! Mike finds things funny you don’t! It’s so offensive you just *have* post a moronic comment!

If you spent a little time *not* attacking Mike for every insignificant thing, we might even start taking your larger points serious. Now, you’re just looking like you’re bored because kindergarten finished for the day.

Why do you even bother? No point, no intelligence, just a personal attack pretending you have some sort of reason to be typing. Neither of your comments here even suggest that a 10 year old child isn’t writing, in content or in focus.

Go do something more productive, it might make you happy enough with your life not to be attacking people pointlessly. Me? I’ve just been sitting in my local sorting out the final details of my trip to New York in November, and enjoying a few celebratory drinks, although it’s a little empty here because most are still on the beach. It’s a good day, the sun is shining and I’m happy with my lot in life.

That’s probably why I haven’t formed a pathetic obsession with attacking someone on the internet anonymously…

business model, hello?

price it within a range I am willing to pay, and I will pay, its called market acceptance, otherwise, I will go get it for free, and you get nothing. do you copyrwrongs get it yet? the market sets the price, not your misguided mathematics. if songs were .10?, and movies 1$, I would pay, otherwise, it’s free for me. I pay more for usenet, vpn, and bandwidth because of your inflated mathematics, and i get what I want, when I want, and watch it when it suits me, without commercials. Roll back your stupid monopoly to 14 years, and work for a living, then you might get my money, pff, never ever, you have poisoned the waters, I screw copyright every chance I get, as often as I can, go cry and get you another legislation, and I will infringe on it as well. I can’t buy hdds fast enough to store the crap you make.. I haven’t seen a commercial in 9 years. more of me exist daily, so good luck with useless laws. I have a server built on technology that is now 9 years old, and will still circumvent any law you can create, 20Tb and growing..

so, go, cry a river, line pockets, sue everyone, it won’t stop me, or the millions of others who discovered a better distribution system than yours. enjoy.

/off to watch Transformers 3 in 1080p, Star Wars, Cowboys and Aliens, Friends with Benefits, and the lame ass Mayweather fight that the monkey cheated to win, o0o, now that’s content..glad I didn’t pay for that shit.
