I am a Time Warner customer. I was a NUTFLIX customer until NUTFLIX began to cut their own throats.

I MUST subscribe to Time Warner internet in my area to have the speed to view NUTFLIX movies in the first place.

Now NUTFLIX is busy adding content that Time Warner is already providing me on basic cable. It would be stupid of me to pay NUTFLIX for re-runs that Time Warner already provided me with. Also Time Warner has many FREE streaming channels showing the SAME content (i.e. The Walking Dead) that NUTFLIX is trying to entice me to return with.

I want good DVD service not streaming, I get enough of that for free. DVD by mail evidently isn't the primary concern for NUTFLIX anymore so I'm no longer a customer.

netflix has so much that time warner does not have. YOU DO NOT have to subscribe to time warner to get the speeds for streaming since there is also dsl available in your area. you are nothing but a paid blockbuster employee.

DSL does NOT provide the speed I need for viewing NUTFLIX.

You are not in my house and have no idea what you're talking about.

On Verizon DSL (which i cancelled after one month) My NUTFLIX streaming video would constantly stop and buffer.

I assume from your accusation though you're just a pathetic employee of Reed Hastings. How in the world could you claim the speed on MY DSL line was fast enough? You obviously don't know what you're talking about.

Oh and to be perfectly clear Verizon does NOT provide FIOS in my area but if they did FIOS is also a video provider so the same overlap of video content would apply.
