More like they were testing the waters to see the response. Surprise, surprise, everyone hates the idea!

Problem is they're trying to back pedal implementation and they're going to lose A LOT of subscribers as result. Had they put stricter policies in place when they started transitioning from the mail-in DVD service to streaming, it wouldn't be as big a deal.

Or just accept they sell by streams. You buy 4 streams they are your streams to use. Mark that up higher cost and just say you all figure it out. They had the easy out and decided to get super mega greedy and it blew up. Now they have lost support. They have lost subs.
