Netflix kills Qwikster, reverts to single strategy

Monday, 10th October 2011 14:24 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Netflix said today that it’s decided to keep its DVD-by-mail and online streaming services together under one name and one website, abandoning plans to launch Qwikster as a DVD rental division. The company told the New York Times it acted too rashly in announcing the move. Its plans for games rentals are yet to be determined; they were to be included in Qwikster.

    FUCK YOU, Netflix!

    This is a victory for the people, lead by the almighty wallet. They need to put on their knee pads and start sucking the proverbial cock if they want to regain their former fan base.

    Pardon the vulgarity, it has been a bit of a rough night here. :D

    I like how I totally called this as a terrible idea on the forum.

    Told you so. Told you so. Told you so.

    Cheaper, easier, selection. That’s all you need.
