Netflix screwed up because they should have thought about CC back when putting their streaming system in place instead of letting it get so big and bloated using multiple devices to the point that they no longer have a quick fix when facing a lawsuit such as this. I'm surprised nothing like this lawsuit are happening with rental discs too as I've found a lot of them don't offer subtitles by stripping them out with the other special features. Subtitles are not a special feature.

I watched one of these and all it was were bits of war footage during ww2 and korea and pictures and short films of crime and vehicle accidents being investigated. There isn't much footage of people being killed it's more the aftermath of these events. This seemed kind of tame compared to what can be found easily on the internet. I feel exposure to this kind of footage can be a good thing as it teaches life isn't all unicorns and rainbows and help prevent war and violent crimes due to showing you the reality of what goes on. It's similar to drivers ed videos showing the aftermath of accidents to get them to think about their behavior and outcomes.
I just cut down from 2 out with blu-ray to streaming only due to this reason. They don't seem to give a crap about catalog titles anymore. I'm now pirating again for the first time in 3 years.
My disc died after about 2 months. Oddly it causes weird problems when I put the disc in my 80gb PS3. It will no longer read any disc after I put in the netflix disc until I do a restore of defaults on my PS3 and then discs start being read again. I've been afraid to use my disc or get a replacement as I already had to repair this PS3 due to a optical drive malfunction. I find it very odd that single disc can block the drive from working which makes me wonder what's different about this disc compared to games, DVD and Blu-ray movies?
I've had it happen 4 times. Just in the last month I've gotten an extra disc twice which has been nice.
I'm in Seattle and I've been with Netflix for about 2 years and have only rented Blu-rays. I've yet to receive a single one with a crack or scratch. I hear about this issue on the net a lot so I'm always checking over the discs, but the track record so far for me is excellent.
I got the same e-mail. The 2% is sort of ridiculous as it only takes 25-50 cents off your bill depending on your plan.
I just watched Adventureland and Children of the Corn on Blu-Ray. Adventureland was a disappointment IMO.
