Fewer movies, more likely to be watched?
I decided to punish Netflix for sending me movies that I don't watch by downgrading my membership. As of early November, my Netflix queue is a one-movie-at-a-time gig. I sent back all three of my current movies, hoping to get only one in return, but according to the e-mails sent to me this morning, I'm about to get a trifecta of new movies that we won't watch.
You're worried about how Brian and I will continue to mainline our movies, aren't you? We've discovered that iTunes is our movie dealer of choice, and that Apple TV is as effective a middle man as any, giving us unfettered access to Netflix's Watch Instantly selection. (Regarding that online aspect of Netflix, we are still all in. We're addicted.)
At this point, I'm really okay with downgrading the Netflix. I don't think I'll miss the three movies at a time. In fact, I'm fairly certain that just the one movie will still collect dust, and be sent back unwatched.
