Netflix gets rid of Qwikster

What do you think of Netflix’s reversal? I was surprised when the company announced Qwikster and two separate websites for mail order DVDs and streaming. It just didn’t make sense for customers who were already outraged about the company’s new pricing plan. Instead of just announcing the reasoning behind the pricing, the company announced a new company. Well, the outrage got the best of Netflix again and now they are reversing their two websites. Sorry, they’re not reversing their pricing plan just yet.

In a blog post, the CEO wrote, “It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.

This means no change: one website, one account, one password… in other words, no Qwikster.

While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.”

  1. The bottom line is they are looking for a way out of mailing out DVD’s. They would rather stream them over the internet and save all that postage. You can fool some of the people,etc.


  2. I like streaming better, too, but found out that literally none of the current movies are available. I kept my streaming, and unfortunately will have to rent from Red Box when new movies come out on DVD. Love Netflix, but simply don’t get new releases soon enough. Too bad.
