Netflix or Noflix, Back to Bittorrent

posted in: Technology | 0

Apparently, Netflix has been throttling shipments of DVDs to their frequent customers. They have some type of electronic system that automtaically detects when you send back your DVDs quickly and withholds your shipments to reduce the overall number that you can receive in a month. That way, they make more profit off of the infrequent users.

It’s kind of funny. With the movie industry trying to encourage people not to download pirated movies, you’d think they’d be a little nicer to the honest citizens, like us, who want to watch movies but who don’t want the commercials and junk that comes with cable TV.

Instead, they pull stunts like this, and I think it’s about time for me to fire up Bittorrent.

When will they ever learn?
