Following CleverDude's post yesterday, I also made the decision to cancel my Blockbuster Online subscription. I noticed my movies took longer to arrive than they did with Netflix and with the recent cost increase, I figured I should go back to where I was happy. Another reason influencing my decision was the ability to watch movies online with Netflix. I switched to the 1 movie at a time unlimited plan that provides 5 hours of online viewing. This plan will cost $8.99 a month vs. the $16.99 I was paying with Blockbuster. Another perk was getting $18 from Ebates.com for signing up which equals about 2 months free and with the 2 week free trial, I get about 2.5 months free.

    Bronx Chica...I decided not to renew the Blockbuster's $10! I work farther away from one and wasn't renting as much as I used to. I heard great things about Netflix. I'm scared that movies may not fit in my mailbox.

    I'm actually cancelling my Quickflix (Aussie version)membership this week as I'm just not using it at all.

    Hey! You actually get 9 hours of Instant Watch time with the $8.99 plan ;)

    And now Netflix allows for unlimited online movie viewing! (Except for the $4.99 account, I think.)

    Now if only I would stop getting the script error every time I try to use it... Grr.
