I will be one of them. Netflix has priced themselves out of a lot of long time subscribers.

I told my kids we were dropping Netflix for a few months when Disney+ came out and they complained loudly... but oh well, there's enough kids content on Disney+ (and Amazon Prime) that they will barely miss it, and it'll be like a whole new thing after a few months off.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

I have one HS and two college kids, so I am planning to have Netflix 5-6 Mos when they are home from College to Binge, DEC/JAN, MAY-AUG. I am planning to get the Disney+ service to counteract, and I have Amazon prime. We'll see if I can get this through without much anarchy..

I don’t think Netflix realizes that it has trained its user so well to binge that there is no incentive for them not to just subscribe a month here and there to watch through whatever original content Netflix provides. They certainly don’t have much beyond that worth paying $12.99 monthly to see anymore, at least for my household.

Well crap, how long has this been possible? Bought $60 worth for $27 and they added to my account just fine.

As long as gift cards have been sold.

Some assume it is people who have stolen credit card numbers and buy gift cards with them to flip. That goes for any discount gift cards you see being sold. I don’t know that for certain so what are you gonna do? eBay covers you if they’re bad.

Well booger. I’ve bought other gift cards on ebay, but either didn’t see or think thru these netflix ones. Will try not to think about the years of overpaying for Netflix.....

Any particular user you recommend. My buddy bought one, and the code didn't work for him. The seller hasn't returned his emails yet.

Iíve bought four from four different sellers. All sent me the code within an hour or two, and all worked. Two of the sellers were sangbin-64 and inxthexredx.

CW-Netflix SVOD deal will not be renewed.

New shows on The CW will be shopped to other services.

It says Batwoman will likely head to the new WB service

I watched a bunch of CW shows when they were on Hulu. But when they signed that exclusive deal with Netflix, I started missing episodes and eventually just gave up on them.

It would be nice if they ended up on a service (like Hulu) that streamed current CW episodes instead of waiting for the season to finish.

The CW app still posts the episodes the day after they air. Only drawback is roughly 10 minutes worth of commercials that are added in. When it was on Hulu, you could watch them all commercial free.

Just to clarify any confusion. Only new shows produced after 2018-19 will not automatically go to Netflix. They will be shopped. So Hulu or the new WB service could get them. Netflix can still pick and choose if they want them or not.

This article says shows like The Flash, Riverdale, Dynasty and such will stay on Netflix through their lifeline.

If only they had a streaming service dedicated to DC properties that they could put stuff on. Nah, why do that?
