    Netflix still has streaming rights to those too. They had exclusive rights up to 9/1/2012 from what I've read. I do know that they are still on Netflix as I am a streaming sub to them.

    I just don't get these big swings. Back in July, it was up around 85. It took a big drop, but worked back up to around 65. Now, today, it's back down to within a buck or so of the 52 week low.

    That kind of fluctuation alone should be a red flag. To me, stocks should be relatively stable with only modest gains over time. They should not have 30 point swings over a few weeks.

    Agreed. I use NF more than D* for my personal viewing. I use both the DVD/BD option and stream a lot of good shows.

    I have the five BDs and HD streaming plan and my price went up just a few cents.

    I don't know how many people are aware that there are 3 tiers of streaming. The highest being the HD streaming for those who have high download speeds. Believe me, the HD streaming tier makes for a much better picture and I never lose the feed. Doesn't cost any more, so if you're experiencing feed interruptions or bad PQ and you have high speed Net service you might want to call NF and ask them to put you on the HD stream. I don't think NF has any way of telling what your Net speeds are, you have to tell them.

    I'm sure glad I never got into this game. Yesterday, some analyst did an upgrade and the stock jumped 10% or more. Today, somebody else did a downgrade and the stock has dropped nearly 8% so far.

    Up 40% today alone?

    Now higher than before the big fall.

    Why?

    After giving this due consideration, while I understand it's good for NF, it kinda sucks for me. 3 BDs at a time might be too much if I can't get my Saturday delivery. Might have to drop back to 2 at a time. Oh well, I'll wait a while and see what impact it has on me.

    Glad somebody understood. I found that whole "sarcastic" thing rather aggravating.

    Read it again. Saturday shipping. They're not sending anything out on Saturday. You may or may not still get them on Saturday.

    Got it, sorry. It might still screw things up for me, have to try it and see.
