    You want to pay $7.99 a month for one DVD rental a month? I don't. I'd rather rent from Amazon at about $2.99 per movie. These steaming video companies are a big racket. You have to pay for anything good that you really want to stream.

      Huh? We WERE watching about 6 or 7 movies a month. That works out to about a dollar each, and no late fees ever.

      As to 'anything good' only being on streaming, it is the exact OPPOSITE actually. Streaming in general is all the limited selection 'pop' stuff composed of bad 'horror' films, lame comedies and formulaic CG ridden 'action' crap written by committee........ that only brain dead people watch. Granted, most of the younger crowd is brain dead these days, so they still have a market.

      The DVD service on the other hand had 100,000+ selections including movies with actual content, quality, directing, acting, creativity, and plot.

      When they put their library on streaming, then maybe they'll have something. By then, Amazon and Blockbuster and even Walmart and others will be taking market share from these idiots who 'had it all and squandered it away because they wanted in their arrogance to be the 'coolest thing in town'.

      F em.
