Well, to anyone who's been paying any attention whatsoever to the entire "Qwikster" situation, it should come as no surprise that Netflix has decided that it was a bad idea to split the DVD and streaming into two separate companies.
Everyone from the very get-go was very disturbed by the idea of having to split up their queues into two different websites, and the frustration was only compounded by the raise in prices recently, and the loss of Starz.
But, alas, the inevitable has come to fruition, and Netflix has posted on the official blog their explanation, including the following statement:
It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.
This means no change: one website, one account, one password… in other words, no Qwikster.
While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.
We’re constantly improving our streaming selection. We’ve recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we’ve added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.
We value our members, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get movies & TV shows.
So there you have it. Good news, nonetheless.
