Netflix Abandons Qwikster

The company also announced it is “done with price changes” after its unpopular decision to raise prices in July.

The move appears to be an acknowledgement that the company’s moves over the past few months have alienated many consumers. In addition to raising prices on consumers who use both the streaming service and DVDs, the company also announced a plan last month to make the two services separate and rebrand the DVD service as Qwikster . The move baffled many and was perhaps further complicated by the fact that Netflix had no control over the @Qwikster Twitter account.

Losing 60% of their stock price in the last 6 few months probably makes you rethink your business decisions more than customer complaints.

That's fantastic. My wife and I cancelled our DVD service and just kept the streaming. Lately we kept forgetting about the DVD's and then ended up not watching them anyway. The last one we had before we cancelled the subscription was lying around for like a month before we even thought about doing anything with it.

Same thing happened with me puppet I would get a DVD from net flix it would sit around for a long time I would watch it and then was never in a rush to sent it back so I cancelled the DVD part of the my Netflix as well.
