A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.
Questions about rooting: http://bit.ly/droot
Sent from my Nexus in a Galaxy far, far away...
I've been using the app on my OG Droid and I doubt a full battery could make it through a movie.
22 minute sitcoms take my battery down 20-30%.
The streaming is currently not worth $8, maybe $5.
I looked at it as a $2 option added to an $8 one-disc plan.
This isn't how Netflix looks at it in their recent announcement.
They should have increased prices $2 or $3 (you know, like they did back in January).
If the streaming content goes up in quality and selection, it will be worth $8 but most reporting suggests that streaming will lose content as costs go up.
I think more people will begin using it and realize that nothing they want to watch is available on streaming.
Bad move Netflix.
Having the app comes in handy if I'm sitting at the dinner table and my wife has insisted on watching "Big Brother" or "Hell's Kitchen"......I can plug my earbuds into my phone and watch "Torchwood" while eating...not like I want to talk to my wife about my/her day while we're at dinner or anything.
As for Netflix's cost......I believe that if it REALLY had all the programming available, at any time demanded, that people seem to want...the service would be unaffordable. Sure, it doesn't match what I get from my sat provider with all the regular and premium channels...but that runs me about $150 a month. Sometimes I even get my fat ass out of the recliner and take my wife out to see a movie.....just one of THOSE is WAY more expensive than the $19.99 a month of Netflix cost me.
Somewhere, at sometime, we're all going to have to get over ourselves and the sense of entitlement many of us have that DEMANDS that we get everything we want, we get it NOW, and that it is either free of only costs $2.....Sheesh.
The recent price increase I got from Netflix on my 2 disc at a time plus streaming plan was $5. I know it's more dramatic to scream "60%", or whatever.......but the $5 is about what many people would pay for a Starbucks coffee ONCE a month. BFD. If people want to keep the service at the higher rates, they will...if they don't they'll cancel.....but why continue to whine about it EVERYWHERE.
I don't see why Netflix would lose content.. I've been reading it's going up due to licensing getting more expensive, and the market should go up in movie availability as they're pushing to stop DVD mailing.
Last night, nothing on TV, DVR used up, didn't feel like using my laptop, so I used Netflix on my phone. Very convenient.
I agree, the price up isn't bad. And to the people that can't afford a few dollars more.. honestly, maybe you should check to see if you could really afford to put any money towards Netflix anyway. No need to almost break yourself because you're not completely breaking yourself.
