Why I'm Canceling Instant Netflix

|Includes: AMZN, Netflix, Inc. (NFLX)

Am I hallucinating or once was there a time that we could see what's New on Instant Netflix?

As it is, several aspects of Instant Netflix make it beyond annoying:

1) No way to see what's new.

2) Recommendations are based on movies that are not part of Instant Netflix. Whenever I start to get excited I realize I need to sign up for DVDs to get the movies on which it's basing the recommendations.

3) There's nothing interesting left to watch. Even the $7.99 / month isn't justifiable; I'm just wasting watching on things I don't care about.

All concerns for me about Netflix's stock. If I had kids I might keep it for cartoons, but I don't so I won't. I hope things turn around but for now I'd rather spend the money on 4 $2 Mad Men new episodes elsewhere.


Disclosure: I am long AMZN.
