Indeed. A Netflix sub might have something new in the future that I want. I have no interest in a new version of MSOffice. If Netflix just keeps churning out Oceans remakes, no-one will keep paying. And quite right too.

The whole reason for these subs is that people saw no value in upgrades - at least, not enough value to spend the cash.

New stuff used to be better stuff for the user. Not anymore. Now its just, "keep ms in business" stuff.
