Just a few short months after announcing that deliverable DVDs would now be dealt with through a separate site called Qwikster, Netflix has now announced they are doing away with Qwikster – but not the price hikes that accompanied the un-bundling of services.
CEO Reed Hastings writes on the Netflix blog:
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.
Something tell us the rankled feelings over the price hikes will not be assuaged by merely doing away with Qwikster. What do you think, Netflix users?
