So What's Netflix Up To?

"Netflix's revenue missed expectations last quarter, possibly because many of us haven't laid hands upon a DVD or Blu-ray in quite some time. The number of customers streaming movies has jumped drastically from a year ago."
So 61% of it's customers (me included) are streaming video now compared to 37% a year ago. People are paying the lower $8.95 USD per month rate for one disc shipped at a time since they get to stream as much as they want, regardless which plan they are on. For me, since they don't have everything on the streaming, it makes sense to get on the family plan, which gives me some choices and my wife some choices.
