Well it's obvious. Netflix feels like the money is in internet streaming since downloads speeds are quickly increasing and more and more people are able to get plans that makes streaming manageable but the only problem is that there are a lot of users who use Netflix for DVD rentals and despite the DVD being a diminishing market for Netflix, Netflix can't do anything to upset those users like splitting them up like they planned to do with Quikster. More likely they'll try to find a way to make the split reasonable while still maintaining some common link towards tome to satisfy customers; whether it be the decline of DVD sales or a full blown conversion to internet content is unknown but one thing is known, Netflix wants to make this switch; it just can't.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I can't afford the extra money for additional bandwidth that streaming movies would require. I like getting my three DVD's at a time and returning them when I'm done with them. If they cancel the DVD rental side of Netflix, they'll have to do without my tuppence from that point on.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I personally think there are array of problems that cause streaming only not to be smart. Example internet company's put hardware in anticipating x amount of subscribers and within the last ten years have more than quadrupled and users usage also quadrupled. Instead of being happy with making money hand over fist and just upgrading hardware they put intense caps and throttle speeds.
Also the mentality of paying cash for a digital item is still less than desirable for some. Example friend who plays pc games can buy most games 25% to 50% off on steam still goes to the store and buys a copy that he can touch.
And last but not least streaming que is fairly limited if you have alot of free time and been a subscriber really the only new stuff is the dvd que. (while they do update its normally only once every couple months that anything worthwhile shows up so why pay monthly)
