Netflix = Stream – Qwikster = DVD =?????

Netflix CEO just dropped a bomb shell, he announced that Netflix is splitting their businesses. Netflix will be for streaming and Qwikster a new company will be for renting DVD’s by mail. The two sites will be separate, and you will not get to cross queue, cross search anything.

With loosing Starz the streaming business will really suck, as their will be hardly any titles available so they have a few months to fix that.  Wow is all I can say, and I bet their stock gets hammered in the morning. My wife has been telling me to cancel Netflix for a while, guess it’s time to figure out what else is available.

Whoever is their PR company they better get busy as they are going to have some very pissed of customers in the morning.
