Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Oh dear looks like Netflix are looking at ways to further ramp up prices in my opinion.

Seems an odd thing to do to split UHD and UHD HDR into different options.

I don't know how you make that out, Den. How much are you currently spending on your non- sports channels? How could you possibly argue that you are not getting value for money by ditching them and instead subscribing to Now TV, Netflix and Prime?

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Many subscribe now owing to it's low entry cost as an add on to their pay TV subscription , if Netflix get silly with prices people will cancel.

We have a good deal through what one would call polite bartering.

Unless you have been on some desert island OB their package prices seem to keep rising and rising.

Agreed although nothing set in stone yet , certainly looks like price increases though.

Good for you if you have a good cable deal, Den. However, although you may be paying under the going rate for your pay-tv channels and potentially a bit more for Netflix, your cable channels still cost more. The price of your streaming services would have to increase very substantially indeed before even becoming aligned with your cable subscription.

Not before time, the content on My5 is being bolstered. It is a good move to include PBS material, IMO.

Of course, we won't be getting this material in Virgin's 'catch-up' section, so all the more reason why the full versions of ITV Hub, All 4 and My5 should appear in the apps section of the V6 menu. I cannot think why Virgin hasn't done this already.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

With the debt Netflix has it was always going to look at increasing prices , looking around on the web and social media there seems quite a lot saying they won't pay higher prices and will cancel.

Netflix need to get it right and not anger loyal existing customers.

But they are only setting that higher price for an additional feature. Hardly worth cancelling on that basis.

No - they currently provide HDR in the UltraHD subscription - they are moving that feature to a higher tear.

Customers will only be loyal to a certain point and hence once that point is reached any loyalty goes out of the window..

That is true, Den. But people aren't going to quit because there's a new service they haven't got that is more expensive. If you are continuing to pay the same for the service you have been receiving and the added charge only applies to you if you sign up for that extra service, how is that grounds for leaving?

If you had been happily eating Joe's cornet vanilla ice creams from the ice cream man over many years, and then he started advertising another kind of cornet ice cream in addition, with a chocolate sprinklings on top for an extra 10p, you might think 'No, I'll stick to my favourite vanilla with no sprinklings', but you wouldn't stop buying the ice cream you love, which was still available at the same price, would you? That just defies logic!

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Have you read Ozsats post OB ?

I currently pay £9.99 and get 4 concurrent streams , part of one of the options was the 4 streams only being available in the top package hence a significant price increase.
