Netflix cracking down…

It appears as if Netflix has been cracking down on the number of devices you can stream to at once.  It was just brought to my attention (with the screenshot below) that if you are on the streaming only plan you can only stream to one device at a time…

Makes me wish there was something out there as flexible and available on as many devices…

Netflix and Quikster

For those of you that have and use Netflix AND have the DVD option this is a change that effects you. Netflix just announced that they are changing things up again. Not the prices this time, but the service itself.

It was announced a while ago that their pricing was changing, breaking apart the streaming video and the DVD at home services as 2 seperately billed items. So today’s news is that they are seperating those 2 services further and branching off the DVD portion into it’s own service. Complete with it’s own name and website – Quikster and Quikster.com

It is clear from the feedback over the past two months that many members felt we lacked respect and humility in the way we announced the separation of DVD and streaming and the price changes. That was certainly not our intent, and I offer my sincere apology…”

Netflix for All*

Netflix announced today that their application is now available on Android Market for all* Android phones.  Well all* (take note of the *) means any Android phone that is running 2.2 and up (Froyo, Gingerbread, and Honeycomb). Fortunately this is a large number of Android devices.  Unfortunately, I have to apologize to all of you out there with the older devices…

So download away and show the world how much your productivity can get flushed down the toilet…
