    They need to add quality tv shows not quantity.. there’s too many Netflix originals which have too big of a budget to make and are forgettable!

    Doesn't matter to me. I have free internet so paying 13 for Netflix and 7 for hulu and free internet beats $80 for cable every day of the year.

    Online streaming is convenient and nice, but it can’t replace my dvds. One of the reasons why is because I can create digital files on my computer and the movie selections are very limited.

    It’s the end of Streaming if everyone makes a streaming service there’s all going to fail Disney + is not going to because it’s Cheap and will have a lot but the rest are

    I honestly was apart of the people who quit Netflix. I mean I loved the shows but it wasn't cheap and I couldn't afford it anymore.

    But who will get the rights for those streaming service outside of the USA hmmm?? I didn't get the new star trek tv show on my netflix

    stopped paying netflix just 2 months ago since they mostly air generic uninteresting documentaries from TV that i never will watch and not a lot of anime for 15 dollars. i pay hulu for 6 dollars and get a lot more shows to watch, like the boondocks and more anime like sailor moon

    I mean it's a smart business move but it's awful for the consumer. I know a lot of people who use just Netflix over a cable subscription, but with streaming service subscriptions going up in price and now everyone wants their own streaming service so they can have exclusivity rights, which ultimately means if you wanna watch certain shows you now need a separate subscription. Next thing you know you're subscribed to 4-5 different streaming services and paying more than you would for that cable subscription you were trying to avoid.

    I think I might drop my subscription, yes I may really like Big Mouth, Greys Anatomy, and Jane the Virgin but sis idk if I’m really down for this whole $13.00 a month

    Corporations are just bringing Cable online because it’s failed now. We need to start canceling their services and start pirating the shows. This shouldn’t be accepted. The entire point of streaming was supposed to be a place to get away from cable, now they want you to pay for it again.

    Too many streaming services will drive people back to cable or satellite, because eventually trying to watch all your favorite shows (that are spread out across twenty different streaming services) will cost more than cable.

    Netflix original shows and movies are not good anyway.. if it's not for the other shows, they would have closed a long time ago..

    There’s only 1 Plan on Netflix and There isn’t much to watch and Friends is one of some of the shows I watch on Netflix!

    So many streaming services but there is not even a single platform which stream every football (soccer) matches leagues.. Epl+laliga+ucl+seria a.. Only at one app.. Have to pay for different different apps like sky, bt, fubo, espn+… Ffs 😑 😑 😑 just make one app.

    I got netflix to watch derry girls stateside, however they say its an original series….. which its not 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Crazy…. I guess that all those big companies are going broke I need a new way to gather some more money from people just trying to get by.
    (Applause)

    so im from singapore and i don’t have a lot of shows that i want to watch :’)) e.g The Office

    also, i really want friends to be continued but ik it ain’t happening in 2020

    Netflix keeps making these shows and then not really following through on them. They have too many mediocre shows now. They seem excited about shows for seasons 1 and 2 and then the quality starts to go down and they cancel after 3 seasons without even really writing a satisfying conclusion and are on to the next thing. Less shows with more quality would be my suggestion. Also, they need to stop injecting leftist identity politics into a lot of their shows too.Their catalog of old movies and tv shows has gotten weaker and weaker too. Netflix should really be about $10 a month.

    For everyone wanting to watch free movies for FREE use coto movies search it up on Google it has all the new movies and TV shows and there's nothing it doesn't have also I'm not a bottle lol

    I hate to pay a credit card on Netflix I downloaded every Free streaming movie services sadly loads too much something free movies services are lying some countries are not available because only usa can develop the free movies services how bad is very big lying and big issue and there no updates to fix the issue

    If Netflix wants to gain more users why don’t they make it international and Add a cheaper price like at 5.99 but with ads and they should add too or make it free I wouldn’t mind the ads cuz that can give me to go get a snack or do sum else
