Netflix has been around for about fourteen or fifteen years now, and just recently has been making some extra bubbles in the hot tub of streaming entertainment, maybe even a floater. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has sent out a mass email and even made a video about what they’ve done and the future plans of Netflix. In brief, Hastings dropped a big bomb on everyone today stating that the Netflix subscriptions were changing again, but not in price. The movie giant will be splitting it’s services to two separate entities. The streaming side will still be called Netflix, but the DVD side has been re-assigned and named Qwickster.
Qwickster will launch in the on coming weeks and will offer everything from movies to eventually games. Gamefly eat your heart out! Qwickster seems as though it will be trying to cover it’s bases is disc entertainment. Hastings noted that Qwickster will very much still be like Netflix but just called something else. One big thing that I myself have been bugged about is that if Qwickster is an entirely new service that means I’ll need to subscribe to Qwickster and Netflix to get my movie fix.
