Let’s be honest, when Netflix announced that it would be changing pricing for the hybrid users like I am who like to stream their movies and use Blu-Ray player once in a great while, I was furious. I felt betrayed by the company who I’ve been with since almost the beginning. The 60% bump in a subscription plan was a ridiculous and ambitious slap in my face, which I didn’t take lightly. The arrogant letter from the CEO informed me that though Netflix understands the potential cancellations of the service from the existing customer base they are very cheery about meeting their goal of stuffing their pockets with a $1 billion in quarterly revenue. No special offers to current customers and no reduced package deals seemed cold like a boyfriend walking out on you on a Valentine’s Day.
