#629: The Enemy of My Enemy Is My Friend

September 29, 2011

Notes from the Manager

You can read up a little about Netflix splitting off its DVD arm into "Qwikster" over at NPR. (Qwikster sounds like a chocolate milk delivery service, doesn't it?)

EDIT (10/10/11): It looks like Netflix has cancelled its plans to spin off its DVD arm into a separate company now.

Do you have Netflix? What do you think about this split, or are you still just pissed about the price hikes they tried to pass off as good news a while back?

Personally, I think the selection on Netflix Instant is pretty good, although mostly for TV shows like Breaking Bad and Louie, which I'm trying to get caught up for, and a bit less so for movies. While they lack a lot of popular movies, they still have a lot of good movies — and for someone like me, who doesn't much care if a movie is popular or not, that's plenty. Sadly, it's constantly changing, so a lot of my favorites that I've found on there aren't up there anymore, like the Carlos mini-series (although they have the 3-hour movie cut) and Animal Kingdom.

It's an understandable shortcoming (they don't have an unlimited budget for programming), but it also makes it kind of hard to endorse the service when my favorite examples of good movies they still have on there aren't there anymore.
