Netflix finally listens to its members, drops plans to spin off DVDs-by-mail as Qwikster
Netflix is staying Netflix.
The company announced this morning that it was dropping its ill-conceived plans to spin out its DVDs-by-mail into a separate website called Qwikster, after weeks of getting irate emails and phone calls from its members.
Wow, it sounds like they’re finally listening for a change.
The Facebook status update announcing the change has over 2,200 likes… and it’s only been an hour since it went up!
This won’t undo all of the damage that Netflix caused themselves with the price increase announcement and the Qwikster announcement, but it will certainly help them retain the members that they still have.
