For anyone wondering, this is called a "trial balloon". This is what happens when it doesn't go well. They can just claim it was an accident and never meant to leak it. If the perception had been positive they would have just left it out there.

How could the perception of this move be considered to be positive by anyone? Oh Netflix is about to charge me more for the same thing, hooray! (?)

For then, positive would probably be it going under everyone's radar and people just kinda accept it. Gladly it wasn't the case.
