A careful reading of this article may show that this appears to be not a Netflix or Starz issue, but rather a SONY issue.  We all know to what lengths SONY will go to protect what it considers its property.  *Cough*  *Cough*  Anyone remember how rootkits first made their way into the public's consciousness?

Without Starz there is no Netflix. Most of my friends signed up because of it. Now they will bug me why they spent 80 bucks for Roku , because there is nothing to watch. RIP Netflix.

Oh well lets just do what we always do and download the movies illegally....is everyone in agreement? Yes? Alright content providers let us know when the dust has settled.

My plan is now as follows:

1. Cancel netflix

2. Head to bittorrent

Man those big companies can NEVER get things right. Rootkits, DRM....

What Sony is trying to tell you is "piracy never pulls movies offline, so go do that!"

Thanks Sony!

I used to be a real fan of Starz.  Their package was pretty cheap on cable years ago, and they played a lot of movies, where as stations like HBO started doing their own stuff and cutting out movies.

Lately, Starz is leaving a bad taste in my mouth.  Their constant restrictions with Netflix and grandstanding about starting their own service (and wanting their own monthly fee) goes to show they've gotten to big for the breeches and no longer care about growing their customer base.  They seem more interested in controlling access with a tight fist and catching ever increasing revenue.

I'm not giving up my Netflix for just one IP holder of movies, so I bid Starz farewell and hope they change their mind and get back on board with Netflix.
