Move Aside, Netflix! Dish Network To Introduce Online Movie Rentals

Some more bad news for Netflix!

Not only have they raised their prices, leaving customers VERY upset, but they've also just recently lost out on their deal with Starz, dropping their stock price by 9% last Friday.

And NOW they have new competition.

The Dish Network is looking into releasing their own movie subscription that will include online streaming as well as mail and in-store rentals, AND on-demand rentals.

Dish also owns Blockbuster, which means they would be getting existing customers as well as possibly picking up the Starz deal that was broken with Netflix.

This is some major competition for Netflix and with so many customers angry at the company for raising their prices, they could very well see another drop in user subscriptions.

Yikes!! We'd think twice about our pricing decisions if we were you, Netflix! Things aren't looking good for you…

    Yes, they've raised their prices but it's still substantially cheaper than paying for cable. I don't see why everyone is freaking out over paying a few extra dollars a month.

    Netflix got greedy….greedy…..greedy!!!

    Re: Jai – why would you pay extra for the same service? I would pay the price if they made all the movies available instantly but they didn't so I cancelled my service…

    Netflix is cheaper than it used to be if you don't use streaming!! Nowhere else can you get the foreign movies, documentaries and cinema that they have available! I obviously wouldn't do without them!

    Re: Nika89 – The cost of products and services go up all the time. It's just the way the marketplace works, you see it at the gas pump, you see it at the grocery store and you see it everywhere else.

    Competition is good. During a recent visit, I noted that Netflix only charges $7.99 a month in Canada.
