Yes, thats it, your not paying for NZ and US. Cancel US and it doesnt affect revenue as the US is free. Some will cancel NF, that happens, not a big number by any stretch
Oh, I understand that. Having US access was a lingering side-effect of getting access to Netflix at all from the days when we couldn't get Netflix here via official channels.
I only cancelled Sky once I was confident we'd be served well enough by official local options, should our current geo-unblocking measures ever come undone. With the strengthening catalogues of both Netflix NZ and Lightbox, we're now there. Although it would be sad to lose access to other services we currently parallel import. Some of these contain content not available here at all.
I sympathize with those that may want to cancel Netflix to send a protest vote that the current regionalized content distribution business model is out dated. But for us, we're taking a more pragmatic approach, and Netflix NZ still has a place in our viewing roster.
I agree. saying its archaic is bizarre. its actually archaic as some bury their head in the sand and chose to ignore the economics that are in play. Its like saying that AB games should be free on air, and choosing to ignore the reveue streams generated not just to the rugger owners, but advertisers, the provider of the content etc. It will all work itself out. You cannot dissolve contracts at 3pm today. It will take time to re hash the redistribution of the revenues down the food chain, while allowing a greater distribution to be available
