Netflix stopped access to my prepaid membership unless I agree to their new prices beginning Dec. 23rd.
Wait…What? They won’t let me watch a movie on Thanksgiving Day unless I click OK? That’s right and it’s wrong!
Netflix covered their legal butts by letting me cancel on their website. I can even click cancel on the screen message, but denial of service I paid for is just plain wrong. Here is the screen image and my freshly cooked turkey.
It says “Your Netflix price is increasing to $10.99 on December 23. Our updated pricing is part of our commitment to improve Netflix, so you have even more of what you like to watch waiting for you. Thanks for being a loyal member. ‘See Other Choices’ or ‘OK’ If you do not wish to continue your membership, you can always cancel at netflix.com/Cancel”
So my choice is to agree or leave, but if I want to watch my show today on my membership which is still good, I have to agree to the new price. That’s it.
What a great holiday present from Netflix. The kids are watching TV and Netflix sends an ultimatum on Thanksgiving Day. Agree now to a 10% increase or leave. So much for the government’s claim of less than 2% inflation.
Yes, I have the right to cancel. Thank you very much, Netflix. You picked a heck of a day to tell me to pay up or get the hell out.
