Take That, Netflix!

Note I got from Netflix this AM.

        
Dear T,
It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.
This means no change: one website, one account, one password…in other words, no Qwikster.
While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.
We're constantly improving our streaming selection. We've recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we've added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.
We value you as a member, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get your movies & TV shows.
Respectfully,
The Netflix Team

WE WIN!!! For once a stupid idea by a corporation with an already winning business model gets reversed. Kinda reminds me of the Coca Cola Classic debacle.

I wonder how many customers Netflix lost before they finally said, “OOPS! Looks like we fucked up!”

That's pretty amazing, actually. Well, good for them, and I hope their public admission of stupidity earns them some lost customers back!

It might. Folks are still pissed about them raising the prices, though.

Only one website makes sense to me.

There must have been quite the campaign to get Qwikster canned. :)
