Ok, I've About Had it With Netflix. It's starting to Suck.

Is it just me, or is Netflix starting to suck more and more balls with every passing day?! They keep taking these shows that my wife and I like off and it seems as if their mission is to get to the point where every movie, documentary and TV series is a Netflix original. And maybe it's just me, but I haven't watched any Netflix original series shows that I've been very thrilled about. First one I watched was Orange is the New Black. That show is alright, but if you were an "Oz" fanatic in the prior to watching it, it is difficult to be that thrilled about OITNB...and Prison Break. I can't even get through this latest season. The entire thing seems to be based on a riot that I lost interest in after an episode or two. And the couple-few Netflix series I've tried since, just hasn't kept my attention. This may because I have a bad attitude coming in about Netflix and haven't been able to shake it. To be fair, I probably haven't been giving the shows much of a chance because I am pissed at Netflix. My wife is really in to Stranger Things right now...she told me I would like it...I am having a difficult time forcing myself to watch it...and she is pretty good about knowing which shows I would like...so I really think it is an anti-Netflix bias.

So Netflix initially ruffled my feathers in a major way when they didn't renew the 30 for30's. I love 30 for 30's...I can watch them over and over. That started it all for me. Now I don't know where to watch them...and I refuse to buy cable/satellite in my town.

Then suddenly, a couple of my favorites; Malcolm In the Middle and The Wonder Years were taken off. That really, really pissed me off. 3 out of the 5 shows I watch more than anything on Netflix (The Office and Always Sunny being the other 2), all taken off...just like nothing. Those were all go-to shows to watch when I wanted to relax on a stressful day...always put me at ease. And my wife is upset about 30 Rock being taken down.

Thank goodness Hulu is stepping up and claiming some of these. Huge fan of Hulu right now.

Eventually, so may only be a subscribe to Hulu and HBO Now. I've about had it with Netflix.

Is that what Netflix is doing? Gravitating towards being exclusively Netflix originals? Because it sure seems like it. I knew it was too good to be true to have access to those great shows for well, more years.

The straw that will break the camel's back for me will be when they take The Office down. I have every season's DVD and everything, but I don't feel like whipping out one of my DVD players just because Netflix sucks. My wife and I watch The Office every day/night when we go to sleep. We have for the past 6-7 years... it's like our bedtime lullaby. At least with Always Sunny, I think Hulu will still have it.

I don't know where to watch The Wonder Years now. What, is it finally on DVD or something?!!

Ugh. Anyone else frustrated with this?

I think South Park was on to something a couple weeks ago when they jabbed at Netflix, teasing them for seemingly accepting any Netflix Orignal Series that is pitched to them.

100% agree with all of those being great watches. Adding to your list:

"The Mist" is a fantastic adaptation of the Book.
"Stranger Things" is still tier 1. Too bad its going to be 18 months before next season and the kids will be mid-teens by then.
"House of Cards" went off into its own orbit, close to unwatchable.

Why drop cable when you just end up paying $15 a month for seven different services.

provided the shows i am thinking of are produced by netflix, they are hell bent on plastering their shows with lgbtqxyz content, often times tricking the viewer. sense 8 was a great example. ozarks even with their redneck one who sucks the penis love trist with undercover fbi. even the shows that aren't theirs, they choose gender sensitive material.

our children, by no pressure from us parents, always say they have no desire to watch that type of content in a movie/tv show, so why would all other kids be comfortable with this material.

why is it that the mainstream media is shoving this content down our throats (the 99%), to cater to them.

what's next? the age of consent is changed from 16 to 12 for all 95 genders?

my membership number with netflix is 00000000000002. but we are switching as soon as my wife finishes up a series she is on.

Amazon Prime Video has more movies and content, or at least good content that isn't their own. Netflix goal I'm sure is to have as much original content as possible, it's probably cheaper.

I think there is also a difference between streaming options and DVD options. A lot more titles are available through the old mail service (assuming that even exists anymore).
Content owners have been jacking up the price that Netflix has to pay.

I had Netflix DVD/mail until fairly recently in order to watch older and foreign films that were only on DVD. Netflix is not replacing those DVDs. So once all of the copies of a given film break, get lost, or too scratched, that title is no longer available.

Ten years ago almost any obscure title that I came across was available on Netflix. It was really remarkable. Today, not so much.

That means they don't re-up with Netflix and instead opt to keep their properties exclusive.

In the end however, I don't know how well it will work. I subscribe to Netflix and Amazon Prime because I have a lot at my disposal. I'm never going to pay a monthly fee to 7 different providers to get all the different shows and movies I like. I'll just stop watching television completely.
In the 80's and 90's you could go to a corner video store and for any major film that had been out long enough, you could rent it.

And most cities had a few video stores that catered to more obscure stuff like art films and foreign films.

Netflix came along and provided all those films in a single, convenient place. I was happy to pay for that content.

It is now splintering. To be able to have legal access to the same, large, content, you will have to subscribe too many, monthly services.



In that environment. I have a lot less sympathy for content owners whining about illegal streaming. Almost nobody is going to subscribe to a dozen different providers. So of course they will look for other options.

My wife told me the Netflix original series I would like the most is Narcos. I tried watching it once. Couldn't pay attention because I had just gotten home from work at 730a and was tired... I was having a difficult time fighting sleep and reading subtitles at the same time.

A few years back I had a chance to get on at a company for good money but it was for third shift, and it looked like I would be on it for years with no chance to get off it.

Of course I refused it was a no brainer to me. Also thank God the company was bought out and the plant closed a couple years ago.
You hit the nail on the head. I've got a pretty long-winded response coming to this one with my experience. It's been a bad experience.

I've got to figure something else out. 3rd shift is terrible. Especially when you have young kids.

Entitled ****ing **** rags, every last one of them.

I'd like to illegally a portion of your paycheck home with me every week but that's called stealing and I'd go to jail.

It's a damn shame that doesn't happen to people that steal content.

I have an acquaintance from college who openly runs his mouth about pirating material for free when he's on Facebook. He does it all the time. I read that stuff when it's on my newsfeed and always wonder how he never gets in trouble for it...because he isn't secretive about it and posts excessively about it. Always rubs me the wrong way. I'd probably unfriend him if it weren't for the fact that he contacts me every year wanting to buy homemade salsa.

And the guy is rich. A rich Chicaburbian.

One way, or another, they will get their money. So you want to drop cable? Sure ok. You still have to pay for your ISP at a level that supports your usage and purchase each streaming service you want. After its all said and done, the consumer will always lose.

All that said, Hulu streaming has surpassed Netflix streaming for what Netflix initially provided. Eventually ABC, NBC and Fox will all start charging for their streaming services as well then Hulu will have to do the same thing Netflix is doing.

With all of that, you still have the live sports problem. Outside WatchESPN and Fox sports, which still requires a cable contract to view, there is still no legal streaming options for sports.
