Netflix's price increase has film enthusiasts all over the United States saying they may cancel memberships.
I have been a subscriber for years and WILL cancel if rates increase, one customer wrote on Netflix's Facebook page.
I'M CANCELING SEPT 30, another angry customer wrote on the company's Facebook page.
Facebook's Netizens were so upset with the Netflix price hike- totaling in at 60 percent- that there were well over 11,000 comments on their site.
We are separating our unlimited streaming plan from our DVD plan offerings. The streaming-only plan will remain at $7.99, while we now offer DVD-only plans starting at $7.99, Netflix said, in what seemed like an attempt to explain itself to customers.
But there are free options in China with newer blockbusters.
Tudou.com - Chinese for Potato.com - is a Web site that offers full streaming films for free, often before they come out in the United States. [But copyrights are a question].
The company's slogan is literally, Everybody's a director in life, a Chinese way of saying, All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players.
The Web site, from mainland China, is entirely in simplified Chinese characters and many of the English-language movies are subtitled or dubbed with Mandarin Chinese.
It's a good time for moviegoers, upset with the Netflix price increase, to get a Chinese-speaking friend.
