Netflix: Boooo!

Netflix is about to nearly double it's monthly subscription as of Sept. I'm seriously going to dump them in August.

Who's with me!

What are the alternatives?

You could always do like I do, I get my movies at flea markets, pawn stores and yard sales.

I only stream anyways so I'm a-ok with it. Either way $8 a month more isn't going to break the bank.

I dropped the DVD delivery since I never end up watching those anyway. the streaming is a great way to settle a 7 year old. In the end I save 2 dollars.
