I’m really starting to worry about Netflix. Yes, Qwikster was an awful name, but the idea that streaming is the future, DVDs are the past is the exact right one. Spinning that business off makes sense as it’s a sinking ship.
Sure, many current customers will bitch and moan at first. But that too will die over time. The customer is always right, except when they’re wrong.
But the bigger problem is Netflix’s waffling. This is the second time they’ve made a major decision, stated it, then gone back. I don’t care how strong the company is, this makes them seem weak and indecisive.
