Netflix Pride Flag



Introducing the Netflix Pride Flag. With millions of subscribers welcoming all kinds of abuse and paying for it, Netflix's customer base has become the largest organized fetish group in North America. A group this large, dedicated, and submissive deserves a symbol.

If you are one of the millions who pay Netflix for continued abuses like throttling, artificial new release delays, mysterious billing errors, dismissive customer service, unjustified fee increases, etc., please display this flag with pride, and let everyone know about your tougher-than-leather, undying love for Netflix. Because, sometimes, love hurts.

Why we are quitting Netflix.

1. Netflix’s recent price increase notice. Sent during the holiday season...What a worse time to do this, and in a deep recession! An 18% increase. In how many areas of your personal finances would you be willing to accept an 18% increase to a luxury expense? The company gets bigger and bigger and the prices increase? As a company expands, the overall value of its goods and services should continue to become more attractive to customers. Netflix customers seem to often get less service for the same price or the same service for a higher price.

With such a large market share, Netflix must be getting cocky. Perhaps, Netflix knows--from experience--that its customers will accept all sorts of abuse, provided that abuse is doled out quietly in small amounts.

So, if I remain a Netflix subscriber, I will soon be paying more for the same level of service or worse? Will I cancel your service, or will I just take the abuse?

2. If you look at our queue.... You will see several things that have been a problem for quite some time now.

A. You will notice that our queue has a very large number of “Very long wait, long wait, short wait” entries at the top. Do you only have “one copy” for the entire United States of these titles? Why are so many titles so hard to get now?

B. Our “Saved” list (78) is way larger than our actual queue (30)! What’s up with that? We have been reading about Netflix’s association/deals with the movie distributors.... Longer waits to get titles via Netflix, Out of (30) titles, there are 19 that we can not get in our queue.

3. We read that Netflix wants to terminate their Saturday delivery’s. Shipping costs MUST be a big problem for the Netflix executives.... Not making enough money you guys?

In conclusion: We have been loyal Netflix customers for probably the last 8 years. We have seen you try harder you guys! We shell out $20.00 a month to you and now your pinching penny’s. We feel the only way to get our message across to you about your “Greed” is to fire you as a service to us.

We are in our 30 day free trial period. Every movie so far has had constant interruptions. The movies stop around 30 times in one hour. What the heck? Don't think I'll be using this service after the trial period. Actually, I think we would rather pay to rent a "current" film and get no interruptions!
