Why Netflix Is So Expensive?

Netflix had been delivering a subscription plan  of $9.99, which permitted one DVD instantly with streaming both of which are unlimited .The subscription plan is found to be $15.98 later on, when the company divided its DVD as well as streaming facility into two divisions. In spite of all these things, Netflix was cheaper compared to others.

Netflix: Before and After

Before the price rises, Netflix use to have three major subscription plans like monthly $4.99 along with 2 DVD sets free, one which is super cheap and DVD streaming combo for about $9.99 per month which is probably the most popular of the company and other combo plans which delivers an immense of DVDs instantly all of which streaming capacity infinite which commence with $14.99 onwards. Recent DVD –streaming plans have become highly expensive.

Now Netflix has announced a still cheap and best plan for admirers of physical media along with much of DVD as you need a month with getting one DVD instantly for the amount $7.99, which has similar price tag as streaming–only criterion, the organization established the late November. The most complex thing here is, what has been most of the fundamental DVD-streaming criterion, the one that’s found to be  $9.99.Netflix ,in a literal sense included the two low tier  alternatives together and came to an end with a huge fee of $15.98.

Though you can register a new plan right now, the existing subscribers have enough time to take decision till September 1.

Inclination to Alter

If you enquire Netflix the recent price tags, after an unexpected realization that there is a huge extending need for the DVDs. Marketing Vice President Jessie Becker says, “Dealing with DVD’s with a $2 addition on to our infinite plan will not cover up the people having immense financial consciousness nor it satisfies public who want only DVD’s.”

The post of Becker, about this alteration on the Netflix’s blog has obtained about remarks of over 6750. Thus it is very difficult to search a positive remark. Even the fellow beings have made a remark in their blog exposing everything from the unbelievable to packing up Netflix saying goodbye to them.

Netflix became cheaper for usage. Telling about a person who was on the plan $9.99 with infinite DVD –streaming plan pays an addition of 2 bucks for the DVD’s.

Below the new price tags, it had been cast off by the streaming –only option which is at the rate of $7.99.Usage of Netflix is cheaper, so yet it needs some more to cancel completely.

If there is no Netflix, then people will be behind Amazon, Crackle, iTunes etc. Just similar to the services which are back-up, it would now become a portion of the daily action and the option of pay-as-you go tag seems to be more sensible just like Sony’s Crackle which is free of cost with advt. support than just delving into the caissons and get no returns.

In all sense Netflix has gone far from a need to below reassessment.

How Netflix Can Gear Up

The DVD-streaming plan rated $9.99 is the only assuring plan. Otherwise Netflix has to prove something, as its virtual value is decreasing.

Bringing back the above plan to $10 and giving a finite amount of DVD’s a month or cover only the requests, if the movie not obtained for streaming purpose, will help. Other option is bringing back the pay-per-view service; else people will feel like paying money for nothing in return.

Take a look at today’s media players.

Everyone enjoys listening to their favorite tracks and their type of music. We all build our carefully chosen playlists and gather our favorite artists and keep them arranged. We listen to them often and often, again and again, innumerable times. So seeing the music lovers’ love the media players had to keep up with the trend and technology. Talking about the media players, they have faced a long journey as the methods of storing and accessing music kept on changing. Starting from physical and bulky players which used to play magnetic cassettes till software applications which run all media files in computer only and everything is in soft form, it indeed has undergone a great deal of transformation.

Today’s media players are just software applications which run in your computer and which can’t just play audio files but also streams video files seamlessly.

There are several wonderful media player applications available in the market today. The good thing is that not all are paid software apps, there are several excellent players which are absolutely free and some even open source. Naming a few of them like VLC media player – an excellent free media player which has excellent set of codecs which hardly misses any, then there is Winamp – traditional media player which has upgraded magnificently with the passage of time to keep up the trends, KMPlayer, MPlayer, Real Player, Quick player, iTunes, Audacious, etc. All these are free media players.

If you have any other choice of your own favorite player you can use that too. If you are aware of all the features offered by a media player and are comfortable in using it then it is perhaps the best option and you should go for it.

Smart phones will never harm Personal Computers

DELL’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael Dell contends that mobile devices shall never harm the personal computers.

Instead he visualizes a future were more and more number of handy mobile devices shall incorporate. They shall sync more easily and swiftly with the personal computers. With more and more network interpretation along with cloud computing. And to that point one shall always agree. As it is seen every time the device changes the data never does. That allows the data to be converged only. Mr. Dell said this in the Citrix Synergy user conference in San Francisco during a keynote speech. Everybody knows that there is enough evidence that the devices don’t replace each other, like a keyboard wasn’t replaced by a mobile QWERTY keyboard. But a keyboard replaced a typewriter, it means that devices in same league may replace each other but not in other leagues.

Everyone knows about smart phones and personal computers. Smart phones are today’s daily  necessity of an executive. One can instantly reply a mail or chat with friends anytime. If you want to do the same with a personal computer you’ll able to, but you won’t be mobile. Personal computer is heavy to carry around, but it allows conducting bigger tasks like editing, creating new documents, photo shop and many more things. You won’t be able to do this on smart phones. So as a matter of concern both the devices are going to work side by side for at least a decade, unless a new invention takes place.

Every device is unique and made with specific uses. Like QWERTY keyboard mobile are there for faster messaging and email applications but not full on article writing. Mobile devices are very specifically designed to be carried with you all time. Some are there to be used to stored higher content data. Some are used just as net books. Some just have special effects devices. These ideas can easily be countered as some time or other the mobile devices shall become the multi-function computer of choice for work, communication, social networking and entertainment. There is enough data to prove that in many past years the sales of mobile devices are more than personal computers.

Mr. Dell also commented on the iPad saying such devices create new uses and not new data. He agreed that it was a unique product and will sell in large numbers to people. But he also believed it won’t replace any device. It will not even create a new demand he added. iPad is one of its kind and is revolutionary too. It has opened up new markets but still one has to use a personal computer to do various tasks like marking maps, working on CADD software and many more.To counter iPad, he confirmed the release of Dell’s Android Streak smart phone. He also showed the prototype of the same. The phone which was named STREAK was imbibed with a Citrix receiver that shall allow the user from a choice of several desktop environments. He also showed meticulously many websites were instilled into the phone. Among them there Facebook and Twitter too.

Talking about the android platform, it is going to give Apple phones a run for it money. In this race Microsoft is trying hard attract customers with it Windows 7 Mobile platform. Looking at the statistics, Apple may be way ahead, but Android is catching up fast. Lots of manufactures are making phones with Android technology and their sale is unbeatable. In the end, customer decides the usage and importance of personal computers and smartphones.
