    I wonder about Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Punisher, Iron Fist and The Defenders. Those are netflix produced yet are also Marvel. Who keeps the kids?

    It won’t really matter for me much longer. The way things are heading in the streaming video world, with more and more content becoming service exclusive or not even available in Canada period, combined with what now seems to be a set yearly Netflix price increase, I am probably going to be one of the first to reverse the trend and become a TV CORD RE-CONNECTOR . You are soon going to need 3-5 different streaming services to get all the content you want, and at approximately $10 per service, there really isn’t much difference than subscribing to TV. And soon the CRTC will mandate a-la-carte TV service.

      So, a $1 Netflix price increase makes you want to go back to Rogers or Bell for TV service? Don’t they frequently increase fees (and more than $1 at that)?

      How about continue to support Netflix and download the rest? I’m not advocating piracy, but I support Netflix but use newsgroups (which is less than $10 a month) to get any shows/movies you can’t get on Netflix. Or waste money. Your choice.

      No, I said that in a few years Netflix will be a shell of itself as we know it now. I believe all the studios that provide content that is currently on Netflix will branch off and try and start their own version of Netflix, thus requiring subscribers to pay for 3-5 services to get all the content they want. And by then, Netflix will probably be $15-$20/month, so times that by 3-5 times for each service, and TV will be the cheaper option.

    I am sure Disney is most interested in what they usually are, which is to liberate as much of our money as possible. However, I am not interested in paying every month for multiple streaming services. The whole idea behind something like NetFlix is to let people get enough variety with one subscription.
