I don't care for the increase. It made things affordable, but as a business, I guess they are losing money. And when that happens, they have to raise there prices. I love the concept so I will probably keep paying.
Unfortunately I would love to get rid of the actual DVDs but some stuff just isn't streamed. Besides, for the amount of movies we watch it is still cheaper than going to the video store and buying or renting. My motivation, it keeps my husband from buying movies.
Also, we had the service in 2003, and if I am remembering correctly, the raised price is what it used to be. But today they have a lot more competition as well. It is a lose lose situation!
