I love Netflix. They’re one of my favorite companies. I think they run their business right both internally and externally. That’s why it was so painful yesterday when they stabbed me in the heart.
As you may have heard by now, Netflix reached an agreement with the movie studio Warner Brothers to hold off on the release of new Warner Brothers DVD and Blu-ray movies until after they’ve been on sale for 28 days. Similar agreements with other major studios are likely to follow. That means you can kiss new release rentals goodbye on Netflix. Simply put, this is bullshit.
