Netflix is raising prices, -again
« on: January 14, 2022, 06:30:15 PM »
The streaming media company said Friday it is raising the prices on its plans in the United States and Canada.

In the United States, the subscription price for the standard plan rose $1.50 to $15.49. The basic plan went up $1 to $9.99 and the premium plan increased $2 to $19.99

Simply not enough to watch on Netflix for me to continue.

I guess that's why they keep sending me text messages to renew my services, eventhough I don't have an account with them.

Netflix hasn't had a bona fide hit since House of Cards.

We liked the disk rental, but Covid killed that for us and we dropped that part.

May drop Netflix streaming and pickup Prime.

If they could stream most of the movies that are on rental disk, it would be worth it.

Love HBOMAX, Prime seems interesting. Disney+ would be a 3rd runner up for me.

Got the Disney Bundle (Disney+,hulu,ESPN+) mainly for ESPN+ to watch the MEAC football schedule.
Haven’t been disappointed with any of the channels.

I have Prime and rarely watch it. Seems like they have a lot of bootleg movies.

How you mean bootleg? The actual video is bad and/or the substance of the movies is bad.

Last night on TCM they aired a Blaxploitation movie named "Black Samson". It was terrible. It seemed to me that this movie was the idea behind Hollywood Shuffle with white folk telling the actors how they wanted them to 'act' black.

I love Blaxploitation movies. When I say bootleg, a lot low budget movies all with a drug theme. I have nothing against low budget movies but once you watched on of these, you watched all of them. The acting is beyond terrible.
