Netflix used to be a great service. I had their DVD-by-mail plan and jumped for joy when the streaming piece was added. I admit that I jettisoned the DVD piece once a streaming-only option was made available, but continued to buy the DVD plan a gifts for friends and endorse the company heartily to any who wanted an opinion.

Now, they’ve fallen flat. They lost Sony content. They decided customers wouldn’t mind a price hike (a large price hike). They lost Starz. Now, I read that the company admits the underestimated the number of subscribers who would jump ship over the price hike and stock prices have fallen. What a mess…
