I cancelled this morning. Saying that it is childish to do so is a bit of an over generalization. I am just voting with what counts, my dollar. That said, I was in a potential position to cancel for a while anyway as I am too busy to really keep up with the DVDs (I got a whopping one the entire month of July), and it will only get worse once the Fall TV season gets going in a few weeks. Also, I have $50 in credit for this site called CinemaNow that I got with my Blu-Ray player. That will get me through 10 movies. Maybe after that starts running dry, I will hit Netflix up again though I am considering asking my father-in-law to just add an extra disc to his plan that I could pay for.
Initially I was just going to cut back, but after discussing the financial savings with my wife, we have decided to just cut it out completely for a while. I think between Redbox, Blockbuster (there is a surviving one not far out of my commute with a big banner advertising 99 cent per night movies), and um... less savory means, I think I can cover the gap without a problem.
