So I guess I get to end my day on a small positive note. I just got an e-mail from Netflix that prices are dropping to $17.99/month—lower than the original $19.95 which later bumped up to $21.99. It’s effective November 1. Cool.
One might wonder if Netflix is reacting to Blockbuster’s $17.49 price for a similar service which now will mail you DVDs instead of making you pick them up at the branches.
Before you’re lured by the fifty-cent savings, don’t forget that Netflix has a lot of older titles that Blockbuster no longer carries—or never did.
Oh, by the way, shame on Blockbuster’s web gurus for configuring their server such that I have to enter www.blockbuster.com instead of just blockbuster.com. I hate when domain hosts aren’t set up properly.
