Re: €7 per month. How's that bad value for money?
It's quite simple really,
I'm an ex uk customer. I signed up, discovered 99% of the library is old stuff that I have seen, but give them a chance... and some repeats of classic movies can be enjoyable.
watched and loved Lilyhammer, house of cards and quite a few movies. what great value for £6 a month. marvelous.
By month 3 I had seen pretty much all i was interested in, still 6 quid for some favourite standup shows, pretty good. and still able to feel slightly morally superior to the torrenters (a bit), I mean my 6 quid must be going somewhere creative!
month 7... haven't even logged in for 6 weeks. WTF am I paying 6 quid a month for.
End of subscription.
I'm a bit gutted, because technically the service is excellent. and the opportunity to binge on box set's makes for a nice relaxing weekend occasionally.
And I get the economics of it, so I understand how unreasonable the following is. but the library is too small, and too shallow and does not change fast enough.
For £6 a month if there was just 1 movie a month I wanted to watch, or a series every few months, I might have stuck it out for a year or two to let the thing mature. But the utility of the service due to the constraints of content means that for me (and i suspect many many others) the usefulness dropped of exponentially.
sad really (come to think of it, same as VM's VoD - haven't used that for a few years either for the same reason)
