Netflix will soon lose the rights to stream Showtime's original series "Dexter," "Calilfornication" and others.
Yeah I think I heard about this yesterday. That kind of sucks that they are losing all these different shows, since I know of a few people who use the service specifically for those things.
Hell since I don't have any of the premium channels it's about the only way I get to watch some of those shows.
The shows are the only reason my wife and I even have Netflix. We've been streaming Bones, Dead Like Me and Grey's Anatomy. Or, rather I should say SHE's been streaming those. I typically stream stand-up comedy.
It's okay man to admit you watch Grey's Anatomy....You don't have to blame your wife :)
But that's a prime example right there of the people affected by this. Is this going to change your subscription to Netflix at all?
Only if it effects the shows we watch.
You know I don't Know one person that watches Bones. Thats weird.
Ha! That's funny, but to tell you the truth I can't think of anyone I know who watches it either. It's been on for a while so someone is obviously watching it.
I know, and I think Fox is doing a Bones Spinoff next year.
Are they really? I hadn't heard that. Are certain character breaking off and doing it? What's the premise, if you know?
Micheal Clark Duncan is in it that is all I know.
Honestly didn't even know these shows were on Netflix. Shows how much I watch TV....So with that said, sucks for those that do watch it but as for me Im still waiting for new movies to come to netflix faster.
I totally understand. I never watch any TV shows on Netflix. Occasionally I'll watch a Futurama or a Code Monkeys, but no actual big shows or anything like that. I'm just not interested enough.
To be honest the only shows I watch on Netflix (recently) are That 70s Show, Johnny Test, and Good Luck Charlie (which isnt completely a kids show thus I love it)
this is why God invented torrents
If Netflix raises my subscription fee again, because of the renegotiate with some of these boardcast companies, I will cancel my subscription. I don't partically watch any of these shows, but I have a feeling some of the Netflix users will complain, and they might renegotiate rights to stream in said content, and in turn adjust member fees. It's bad enough having to wait three months for a new release. I might have to try hulu, and see what they have to offer.
I'm right there with you. While the membership fee isn't exactly high, I don't think I use the service enough to justify another increase. It's one of those things I could 'do without' if need be.
