Netflix’s New Prices Cause Customer Revolt; Social Media All Abuzz

On Wednesday, #DearNetflix was a trending topic on Twitter, as frustrated subscribers spoke out against the changes, with several threatening to cancel service.

Even more telling, the "offiicial news release" by Netflix on their own Facebook page drew the ire of posters.
On Facebook, the company’s post announcing the change has more than 20,000 comments — and few of them are positive. Most take issue with the fact that the company isn’t adding services to justify its rate hike.
“Nothing like doubling your price and adding no value,” commented Facebook user Tim Smith.
